The FIDE Online Cadets and Youth Rapid cycle started in August with the selection stage to the World Cup, continued with the World Cup final, then two Grand Prix events, and culminated in the round-robin final with a 30,000 euros prize fund that finished on December 21. From more than 3,000 participants, only six strongest in each category (open and girls under 10, 12, 14, 16, 18) made it to the Super Final.
The FIDE Online Cadets and Youth Rapid Super Final is halfway through on Tornelo playing platform. Six rounds were played in all ten separate sections (Open and Girls under 10, 12, 14, 16, 18), and only four more are left before we know names of the winners. In some categories, six rounds produced clear leaders, while in others, it is challenging to be on the mark with a prediction—so close is the race.
