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.

Customer Reviews
Exceeded my expectations Review by Walt
My board, box and chess pieces arrived this week. The care that Chessbazaar took to package and protect the merchandise was also indicative of the quality of the workmanship. Flawless! I could not be happier with my purchase.

An aside, Chessbazaar was tremendously solicitous of me re: my satisfaction, tracking of the shipment, follow-up, and responsiveness on questions I had. I won't be looking elsewhere for future purchases. This company knows how to meet its customers' expectations. (Posted on 3/26/2017)
Stunning! Review by Marco
At first I wasn't quite sure about the quality of the set and of the whole store but when yesterday I received the parcel and saw the quality of the packaging (there was plenty of cellophan and every single piece was wrapped for extreme protection!), the expectations for the wisdom of my purchase greatly increased. And I must admit: the set is simply wonderful and absolutely flawless and it's a pleasure to hold and see. The knights seem to be alive and all the pieces yearn for fight. The dark pieces are a little less reddish if compared with the pictures but are gorgeous.
Even my wife, totally aloof about chess, was amazed and loved the set. Now I'm sure I'll be back here in the future and I can recommend the site.
Thank you very much for your appreciated work. (Posted on 3/22/2017)
