The award-winning Meltwater Champions Chess Tour, the world’s leading year-round chess circuit, reaches its penultimate tournament with the Aimchess Rapid starting on Friday.

The eight-day event, the eighth leg of the $1.6 million Tour, will feature 16 world-class players including top grandmaster streamers such as Eric Hansen and Daniel Naroditsky.

Carlsen tops the Tour standings with $180,000 earned so far in the 2022 season. India's teen sensation Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa sits second on the leaderboard with $106,500. Five top prodigies will be among the big names hoping to stop Carlsen.
