Candidates Round 6: Praggnanandhaa Catches Up, All Decisive Games in Women’s

Praggnanandhaa and Vidit win in the Open as Goryachkina, Tan, Lei, and Lagno win in the Women’s

This year’s Candidates — both the Open and the Women’s — is truly a spectacle of chess carnage. Two decisive results in the Open and four decisive results in the Women’s! As a chess fan, one could not really ask for more. The games had their fair share of intrigue as well and were not one-side-just-blundered victories. The leaderboard at the top in both sections has not changed significantly, but tomorrow’s round will see some very important battles, both in the Open and the Women’s.

As well as broadcasting the live games from the two tournaments, Lichess is providing a live stream for every day of the Candidates. Make sure to tune in to our Twitch or YouTube channels, with streams starting from 14:15 Toronto time (18:15 UTC).
