2019 Tata Steel Rapid & Blitz

National Library of India, Kolkata, India

The 2019 Tata Steel India Rapid & Blitz will become the first GCT event ever to be held in Asia when the event commences in Kolkata in November. The tournament is sponsored by Tata Steel India and organised by Gameplan Sports Pvt. Ltd and was an instant hit when it was run as an independent event in 2018. GM Hikaru Nakamura won the rapid segment while the home town favourite GM Viswanathan Anand recorded a memorable victory in the blitz. Both players will be back in 2019 but with a significantly stronger field including no less than World Champion Magnus Carlsen.
