83rd Tata Steel 2021 (Wijk aan Zee NED) INFO LIVE RESULTS PGN

The 83rd Tata Steel Chess tournament takes place 15th January (Saturday 16th Jan Round 1) to 31st January 2021. The event will be limited to just the top Masters group where the players are: Magnus Carlsen, Fabiano Caruana, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Anish Giri, Alireza Firouzja, Jan-Krzysztof Duda, Pentala Harikrishna, Radoslaw Wojtaszek, Alexander Donchenko (who replaces Daniil Dubov who has been close contact with someone with Covid and has had to self-isolate), Andrey Esipenko, David Anton Guijarro, Jorden van Foreest, Nils Grandelius and Aryan Tari. This feels a very young field with 4 players aged 30-34, two teenagers and the rest of the field in their 20s. The circumstances of the coronavirus means there will be practically no-one there to watch in person but there is sure to be a lot of internet coverage. Two years ago when I was last in Wijk aan Zee not only was there this tournament, a B event and many amateur groups but on the first weekend there was also a huge cycling event with hundreds of people- the place was a hive of activity. It’s obviously not going to be like that at all this year.
