With around 1500 contestants from all around the world, this chess event held in Moscow is one of the biggest and most challenging tournaments in the world. With a 3.5 million ruble ($113,000 USD) purse, competition is already looking to be fierce, even for champions like Nino Batsiashvili and Yaroslav Zherebukh.
