Wesley So vs. Garry Kasparov (2016)

You heard it right. It’s happening! In 6 blitz games.


As a bonus to the US Chess Championship 2016 event, the top 3 finishers, which of course include Fabiano Caruana, Wesley So, and Hikaru Nakamura, all members of the top 10 in the recent FIDE Ratings List, will play in a 4-way sextuple round robin with the legendary Garry Kasparov.

This is definitely a dream match up for us Wesley So fans, and chess fans in general. We also hope to see this event to be the first step for the come back of Garry Kasparov to challenge the current supremacy of Magnus Carlsen in the chess world.


Games start on 28 April 2016 at 1PM St. Louis (USA – Missouri) time, or 29 April 2016 at 2AM Philippine time (PHT).

Check out more details about the blitz tournament in the US Chess Champs website and read the trash talks before the event on Chessbase.

I hope to publish the games here when they’re finished.
