Airthings Masters

 Another big chess series kicks off for 2022, with the Airthings Masters starting in a few hours. Part of the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour, the first event starts with an online rapidplay RR, with 16 players from around the world. The format has been sped up, to provide more exciting chess, so there will be 4 rounds per day in the preliminary section. The top 8 players will then qualify for the KO final.

For local (Canberra) viewers, the tournament begins at 4am, but you may be able to catch the last couple of games of the day, if you wake early enough. The official hompage for the tournament has more details, including schedules and tournament formats.
