Azerbaijani grandmaster Teymur Rajabov will test his strength at the 3rd International Tournament-Chess Stars 3.0.

The chess tournament will take place in Moscow on December 14-19. The total prize fund of the tournament is 15 million rubles (about AZN 300,000), Azernews reports.

Chess's brightest stars, such as Teymur Rajabov, Sergey Karjakin, Alexander Grischuk, Vladislav Artemiev, Evgeny Tomashevsky, Ernesto Inarkiyev, Aleksandra Goryachkina, Kateryna Lagno, Francisco Vallejo, and Raunak Sadhwani, will participate in the tournament, which has become one of the most ambitious and successful international chess competitions.

The tournament continues to actively develop, bringing together world-class chess players for the third time.

In 2022, Russian chess player Vladislav Artemyev took first place at the tournament.
