Wesley So has his eyes firmly set on a third 2021 Champions Chess Tour win 

So far, it’s safe to say that Wesley So is having the best start to this year’s Champions Chess Tour. What’s more, he currently leads the 2021 Tour rankings with 140 points according to the online sportsbook news in Norway

Up to the present time, So has won the Skilling Open, the 2021 Tour’s opening tournament and the Opera Euro Rapid. Now, the American grandmaster is aiming for his third Champions Chess Tour win of the season. 

However, as it stands, current title frontrunner Magnus Carlsen stands in his way of achieving this. Nevertheless, he sill has the second-best 2021 New In Chess Classic betting odds to win. As a result, a third tour win is within reach with odds at 5.00 on Unibet Sportsbook.

Hikaru Nakamura looks to claim first 2021 Tour victory

Unlike most of the New In Chess Classic top contenders, Hikaru Nakamura has yet to claim a 2021 Champions Tour tournament win. Consequently, Nakamura will be itching to get his hands on the upcoming 2021 New In Chess Classic win. 

Fortunately, the American grandmaster finds himself in a promising position to achieve this on Unibet Sportsbook. This time, Hikaru Nakamura has the third-best odds on the online sportsbooks in Norway to win the New In Chess Classic tournament at 7.00

Similar to Nakamura, Levon Aronian has no 2021 Champions Chess Tour wins under his belt. Now, the Armenian grandmaster will be hoping to change all that at the upcoming tournament. Presently, Levon Aronian has the 2021 New In Chess Classic betting odds to achieve this at 15.00

Lastly, Alireza Firouzja is another contender with good odds to win the New In Chess Classic tournament on Unibet Sportsbook. If this pans out, then Alireza Firouzja (15.00) will record his first win on this year’s Champions Tour.
