The chess player is currently 4th in this year’s Grand Chess Tour Standings. This is thanks to his Saint Louis Rapid & Blitz win in August and total points from the Croatia GCT and Sinquefield Cup. Consequently, he could ensure a spot for the GCT Finals things go his way in Bucharest.

Wesley So looks to claim first 2019 GCT win in Bucharest

According to 1xBET Sportsbook, Wesley So currently has the second best odds of winning the Superbet Rapid & Blitz in Bucharest.

Russian Ukranian grandmaster Sergey Karjakin currently stands a small chance on 1xBET Sportsbook to claim a win in Bucharest. However, he could be among the underdogs to surprise us this year. Currently, Karjakin tied in 4th in the  GCT Standings together with Levon Aronian and Fabiano Caruana.

However, if he makes the right moves in Bucharest, a spot at the 2019 GCT. Finals in London is achievable. You can bet on Grand Chess Tour Bucharest 2019 underdog Sergey Karjakin with odds standing at 8.00.

Anton Korobov likely to miss out on Superbet Rapid & Blitz win Bucharest

The Ukranian grandmaster currently has the worst odds on the online sportsbooks in Romania of winning the upcoming Bucharest GCT. The 3-time Ukranian chess champion currently finds himself at the bottom of the 2019 GCT standings with 0 points. Consequently, a bet on Grand Chess Tour Bucharest 2019 hopeful Anton Korbov (15.00) will be risky.
