Chess Bundesliga starts in 11 days

Is the German Chess League slowly coming to a calmer state? After the disputes over the admission regulations and the associated legal disputes, which went against the German Chess League, the time has come again on October 21st. The self-proclaimed best league in the world will once again start with 16 teams.

The favorite remains Baden-Baden, where Fabiano Caruana, an absolute world-class player, joins or leads the ranks of the 2700s and 2600s.
But Viernheim will also have a say again this season when it comes to the championship. Having failed last season in Bremen's Weserstadion, they have improved for the coming season with Hikaru Nakamura. It remains to be seen how often he plays, but one thing is certain: he will be used.
The Deizisau chess team, including the new junior world champion GM Mauruzzi and team manager Sven Noppes, should not be underestimated either. The team, which is filled with young German national players and the national coach himself, has annoyed Viernheim and Baden-Baden too often.

Despite all the quarrels, it will be another exciting season that is worth following!
