World Chess Championship Special – Six players share first place in Sarasota November Open

After jointly watching and analyzing the second game of the World Chess Championship match between Magnus Carlsen and Fabiano Caruana for 2 hours, 16 players competed in the 5 round Sarasota Chess Academy November Open. National Master Ronald Holt from Holiday (FL) played his first tournament in 14 years. Just like Jeffrey Ward he showed the courage to return to tournament play and enjoy a good chess battle without worrying about his rating.
