Levon Aronian and Hikaru Nakamura are to play a five-days match from November 21st to November 25th in the U.S. city of Saint Louis. The event will consist of four classical games (1 per day) and the blitz match of 16 games in the final day. The prize fund is $100.000, which is the same amount as in the Tal Memorial Blitz finished in Sochi a few days ago.

The venue for the match is the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis which has already become famous in the chess world due to the recent sensational Sinquefield cup won by Caruana.

The 5-days match between the renowned GMs will be accompanied by 2 round-robin tournaments (10 players in each) with GM- and IM-norms respectively. GMs Yasser Seirawan, Maurice Ashley, and WGM Jennifer Shahade will be providing live commentary for the events. More information is available at the official website.
