Dmitrij Kollars replaces Vladimir Kramnik in the No-Castling World Masters: Before  the  start  of  the  event, Kramnik  experienced  health  problems,  so  he  had  himself  tested  for  an infection  and  was  found  to  be  COVID-19  positive.  He  immediately  isolated himself  and  will  therefore  not  take  part  in  the  NC  World  Masters

“German national players measure themselves against the extended world's best”, that’s how the organizers of the Sparkassen Chess Trophy describe the most important tournament of their festival. Given that seven players are participants, one of them rests each round. This player will join Artur Jusupov in the commentary booth.

The time limit is 90 minutes for 40 moves + 30 minutes for the rest of the game + 30 seconds per move.
