4th FIDE World Chess Championships for People with Disabilities

Today marks the 4th round of the tournament - the games are starting to get really interesting!


We are already a third of the way through the tournament and things are definitely starting to heat up! There has been a bit of a movement on the top with the consideration of the tiebreaks so the next couple of games will certainly be interesting to watch and see which way things are going to go!

Benjamin Akok from Australia won his game yesterday against Khanh Lam Nguyen from Vietnam. Have look here and when you scroll to the bottom he shares how chess influences his day to day life. It is great to see participants like him join the tournament from all corners of the world - celebrating the range of diversity only chess can offer.


You can also follow the games on Lichess who are broadcasting all boards live from 12:00 UTC.


Good luck to all players today!
