A new era of chess has begun, as teams from around the world begin to compete in the World Chess Championship for the first time since its inception in 1970.
The event will be played on the same site in Germany as the first edition, in Munich, and will be held in the same hall as the 2012 Olympics, which saw a record crowd of about 12.5 million.
The event is one of the most prestigious in chess history, with the World No. 1 ranking now held by the world champion, Hikaru Nakamura.
It is a prize tournament where, unlike the previous tournaments, no money is handed out.
But it also has a symbolic value.
In 2017, the world championship drew in more than 20 million people, with about 5.4 million spectators.
That was more than the population of all of Europe, and far more than any other chess tournament.
That’s because the prize money for the World Championship is $2.5 billion, which is more than most other major tournaments.
The money is spread among 32 teams, which have to share it equally among themselves, with no chance of getting a share of the prize pool.
Each team gets a certain amount of points, which are used to fund their training camps, for instance, or to buy more equipment and coaching staff.
Each team then must also make the best use of that money to help their team win a match.
In a game of chess, you can’t predict the outcome of the game until you’ve played it.
That’s why every year the World Cup has a special prize of $25 million for the best team, or $2 million for a perfect result.
But this year’s World Championship will be the first since the 2014 edition, when it drew more than 10 million people.
Many people will be tuning in to see who will take the crown, which could mean a showdown between two world champions, one who is the best player in the world, or perhaps two teams who have a strong chance of winning the tournament, but both are likely to have some of the same flaws.
The tournament has attracted the attention of several world leaders, including former U.S. President Joe Biden and former prime minister Shinzo Abe, who will play for one of five spots in the final.
The World Chess Federation has been involved in planning the event since it began in the late 1970s, and the World Champion has been the organization’s president since 1998.
The winner of the tournament will win the title of world chess champion, which would make him or her the world No. 2 player, behind only Vladimir Kramnik, according to The Associated Press.
The U.K. is also hosting the tournament.
The tournament will be hosted by the German Confederation of Chess, which oversees the sport in the country.
The final game will be on Tuesday, March 19, but the World Championships have been held on weekends and are typically played in spring or summer, rather than autumn.
The World Chess Association, which organizes the tournament and is responsible for organizing the tournament’s prize money, will pay the final prize of about $2 billion, said WGM President Joerg Bohn.
The winners of the three main tournaments in the 2018 edition of the World Games will be crowned March 26, 2019.
