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.
