Team Rex vs. Team John

Between the recently concluded Sinquefield Cup and the Chess 9LX Champions Showdown, the Saint Louis Chess Club’s Ultimate Moves is all about fun.

Two teams compete against each other. After five moves, one player leaves the board and a teammate steps in. However, not all team members are of the same level. World-class players and amateur chess enthusiasts alternate in each squad.

Before the start of the comparison, the captains Rex Sinquefield and John Beckstead chose their players from the world-class pool.
