MOSCOW, August 14. /TASS/. Garry Kasparov and Sergey Karjakin will play a game in the first round of the Saint Louis Rapid and Blitz tournament, according to the drawing procedure.
In addition to Kasparov, the 13th World Chess Champion, and Karjakin, taking part in the tournament will be Armenia’s Levon Aronian, ex-World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand (India), Fabiano Caruana and Hikaru Nakamura (USA), Yan Nepomnyaschiy (Russia), Leinier Dominguez (Cuba), Le Quang Liem (Vietnam) and David Navara (the Czech Republic).
In early July, Kasparov announced the resumption of his career and plans to take part in the Saint Louis Grand Chess Tour. President of the International Chess Federation (FIDE) Kirsan Ilyumzhinov later informed TASS that the issue of Kasparov’s return to professional chess would be considered by the FIDE Ethics Commission. Kasparov was disqualified for two years for corruption and vote buying at the FIDE presidential elections in 2014.
