World Chess Championship Begins Today

World Chess Championship begins today!

This is the first time when world rates #1 (current champion, Carlsen) and rated #2 (challenger, Caruana) are just 3 points apart…so close.

Also, this is the first time when both player are rates above 2800.

And lastly, this is the first time since Bobby Fischer (1972) that an American is competing for the World Chess Championship!

Promises to be an exciting, and hopefully close encounter…
