Daniil Dubov will leave the Tata Steel Chess Tournament after testing positive for the corona virus in a PCR test yesterday. This means that the results of his previous matches will stand and that Dubov will forfeit the games against the opponents he was to face in the last three rounds. They are Rapport, Praggnanandhaa and Carlsen respectively.
Tournament director Jeroen van den Berg: “I feel sad for Daniil that he now has to leave our tournament. The whole organisation of the Tata Steel Chess Tournament feels for him, wishes him all the best in these trying times and hopes that the remainder of the year will bring him sporting success.”
