GM John Burke analyzes and commentates on the games that led two of the four musketeers who won the pools to the finals, which will take place starting tomorrow, March the 12th.

One of the semis was decided in the classical time control mini-match, but it didn't lack the thrill!

The second semis went to the tiebreaks. Rapid chess makes these super-GMs look almost human, with mistakes and even blunders happening much more often than in classical games. For "normal" people like us, it's somewhat refreshing to see that even players of this caliber can bump into wrong evaluations, if not real blunders.

Enjoy John's video!

The first game of the Finals starts tomorrow, March the 12th, at 9 AM EST - 15:00 Belgrade (CET) - 14:00 UTC.
