Alexander Grischuk can seal qualification for the 2020 Candidates Tournament by beating Jan-Krzysztof Duda in the Hamburg FIDE Grand Prix final after he overcame Maxime Vachier-Lagrave in the 2nd classical game of their semi-final. Jan-Krzysztof Duda needed tiebreaks and looked dead and buried after losing the first 25-minute tiebreak game against Daniil Dubov, but a final desperate try in the second was crowned with success before he went on to win the 2nd 10-minute game. After a rest day the final starts on Friday.
