The fight for gold in the open section will probably feature a duel between Russia and title-holder China. In the absence of some of their top players, Azerbaijan, India and the United States will hope for an exploit to make it on the podium. The young Iranian team will make its first appearance in this competition.
In the women’s section, the outcome is unpredictable. The historic battle between title-holder Russia and 2018 Olympic champion China will be troubled by ambitious teams like the Ukraine, India or Georgia.
Ding Liren, Alexander Grischuk, Yu Yangyi, SergeyKaryakin, Vladislav Artemiev, Wei Yi, Lagno, Gunina, and Tan Zhongyi are playing!
Time control: 90 minutes for 40 moves, followed by 30 minutes to the end of the game, with a 30-second increment starting from move one.
