Last year's event was the strongest chess tournament ever held on U.S. soil. The four grandmasters played the classic time control (40 moves in 90 minutes with a 30-second increment as of move

Original chess set which was used in 2014 Sinquefield Cup has the king height of 3.75". one, followed by 30 minutes for the rest of the game) in double round-robin tournament. The players included Magnus Carlsen, Levon Aronian, Hikaru Nakamura and Gata Kamsky who faced each other. This year, the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis also brought us the strongest tournament in the history of chess. Sinquefield chess set was first seen in the 2014 Sinquefield Cup organized by the FIDE. It is the highest-rated tournament in the history of chess, brought six of the world’s top-nine Grandmasters together at the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis. Six of the top nine players in the world competed in a 10-round, double round robin for the $100,000 top prize and the right to hoist the coveted Sinquefield Cup. The stress showed in the first half of St Louis, particularly in round three where Carlsen chose the Bishop Opening 1 e4 e5 2 Bc4 for the first time in his life, stood worse from the opening, made a bishop sacrifice which Caruana defended accurately and finally collapsed into defeat. The winner was Fabiano Caruana who got $100,000 top prize money and honor to own the coveted Sinquefield Cup.

A Set To Be Cherished! Review by CM51

The pictures were astounding, and frankly even though I knew they would be FIRST CLASS - I did not expect the pieces to match those being advertised. I WAS WRONG - THEY ARE EVEN MORE IMPRESSIVE!!! As much as I love this game, I am always surprised when I find a set that has a design that will be timeless, carving that makes the design stand out, & a choice in wood that catches even non-chess players attention. I hope you will continue expanding your wood choices; as they only make your designs IN A CLASS BY THEMSELVES! I agree with the other reviewer - the carvers (ARTISTS) have acquitted themselves MASTERFULLY aligning the grain and pattern in the piece to center it and allow all the color and figure to make the piece almost come alive!! I hope you will continue this design & wood choice - so others will have the pleasure of seeing a TRUE MASTERPIECE. Warmest regards from your Customer!! (Posted on 11/10/2018)

I already owned the Imperial Collector Series (Sinquefield Cup 2014) Wooden Chess Set - 3.75" King, in Bud Rosewood and Boxwood, so I knew how good that pattern (S1280) is. I was intrigued by the images in the listing for this Limited Edition version, so I enquired about the wood used. I was told that it is zebrawood, so I placed my order for S1280N and waited for about six weeks. I was told to expect this wait, as these sets are made in limited production runs, and I would need to pre-order in order to be sure to get one of these sets. It arrived yesterday and I was extremely impressed, as I removed the expert packaging. The pieces were all perfectly carved and in a very artistic fashion. The pattern of the pieces aligned with the grain of the zebrawood, so that from the front and back the black and white stripes are straight. When I looked at the pieces from the side, I saw the alternating bands of black and white as circles. This set is amazing and beautiful. I plan to mix and match these pieces from S1280N with pieces from S1280. Then I can have boxwood pieces with the dark zebrawood pieces, which will look great and have greater contrast. The lighter type zebrawood pieces have some red in them and will also match with the bud rosewood pieces. (Posted on 10/31/2018)
