Champions Showdown Blitz, St Louis, 2019

The Champions Showdown in St Louis featured several entertaining rapid and blitz matches between elite players. Fabiano Caruana resoundingly defeated Pentala Harikrishna by 35.5-12.5, and appears to have improved his rapid and blitz play following his disappointing performance in the World Championship rapid playoff against Magnus Carlsen.
