The global pandemic prompted scheduling changes & postponements for countless tournaments worldwide. Some wanted an immediate rescheduling that saw attendees returning sooner than later, with others understanding the difficulties surrounding coronavirus. The Grand Chess Tour didn’t hesitate to terminate their entire season for 2020, refusing to allow players & supporters to potentially contract Covid-19.
An announcement was made by the GCT Tournament, which included the details for 2021s Grand Chess Tour. This is substantial for individuals with prominence in the chess community, with GCT considered the most prestigious series worldwide. The reasoning for its prestigious reputation is because twelve of the world’s greatest “Grandmasters” compete for ultimate victory. These grandmasters are considered the smartest chess players worldwide.
Nobody would anticipate that betting on the GCT Tournament has become popular in recent years. Sportsbooks worldwide provide betting options for the Twelve Grandmasters, with onlookers betting online making educated guesses on which players are best suited to take victory of the GCT Tournament. Knowing the increasing popularity of chess betting has prompted Superbet to announce its partnership with the GCT 2021 Tour & Tournament. The Romanian bookmaker is serving as principal partner for one year, with resigning negotiations viable for this time next year.
