Re: Grand Chess Tour events: Paris GCT and Leuven, Belgium

Live blitz ratings over 2800 are:
Carlsen
MVL
Ding Liren
Naka
Andreikin
Caruana
Grischuk (who I would have expected would be higher)

Caruana now 30th in Rapid (where Grischuk is 2nd and Magnus is over 2900)

Re: 2017 World Teams 16-27 June

Russia won; Svidler rested again, so Nepo white tomorrow v US; it will be academic if China beat Poland (China lead by 1 match point, but only 1 game point)

In the Women's event, Ukraine lost to Georgia, so trail Russia by 2 match points and 4 game points, so that's effectively all over
