Caruana beats Firouzja in play-offs

Chess 960 is a variant of chess created by Bobby Fischer in the late 1990s in which the pieces on the home rank are randomized, with 960 representing the number of possible starting positions. Players will not know the order of the home rank pieces until they arrive before the start of each round and will have to rely on their creativity in a series of rapid games.

Three rounds will be played daily from Wednesday until Friday. The time control is 20 minutes for the whole game plus a 5-second increment from the first move.
