Bookies’ favourites to win World Chess Championship:

Well, like the one famous song says: “there’s nothing left to say”. Carlsen’s supremacy is obvious, no one else has his 1.60 odds or something close to it.

A chess prodigy, Carlsen earned his grandmaster title at the age of 13 years and 148 days. Carlsen was introduced to chess at the age of 5 and played in his first tournament at the age of 8. He reached No.1 in the FIDE rankings in 2010, becoming the youngest person ever to achieve those feats.

We have a new Kasparov here, don’t we? The next three players significantly dropped to 9.00, which is nothing compared to Carlesn’s 1.60. But in this situation, I’d rather credit it to Carlsen’s success rather than to Nakamura’s or So’s or Aronian’s loss.

The Best of the Best

Levon Aronian was ranked World No.2 and had an Elo rating of 2830, making him the fourth highest rated player in history. Aronian won the FIDE World Cup in 2005 and the 2017. He led the Armenian national team to the gold medals in the Chess Olympiads of 2006, 2008 and 2012 and at the World Team Chess Championship in Ningbo 2011 and it’s not the end of his track record.

Despite of Nakamura’s chess betting odds, he is a four-time US Chess Champion, who won the 2011 edition of Tata Steel Group A and represented the US at five Chess Olympiads, winning a team gold medal and two team bronze medals.

Wesley So is another good option if you want to bet on chess champion. The current US Chess Champion, a former chess prodigy, So became the youngest player to pass 2600 Elo rating in October 2008, breaking the record previously held by Magnus Carlsen.

Fabiano Caruana has 13.00, but as for me, it’s a bit unfair. A chess prodigy, Caruana became a grandmaster at the age of 14 years – the youngest grandmaster in the history of both Italy and the United States at the time.
