    About the Tournament

    The 2019 Sinquefield Cup is the fifth Super GM tournament to be held in Saint Louis, and it features twelve of the best players on the planet including: Magnus Carlsen Fabiano Caruana, Sergey Karjakin, Hikaru Nakamura, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Viswanathan Anand, Wesley So, Anish Giri, Ding Liren, Ian Nepomniachtchi, Levon Aronian and Shakhriyar Mamedyarov

    Started in 2017 and carried into 2019, a fresh new design for the DGT-enabled Sinquefield Cup Chessmen has been selected. The chessmen are a reproduction of the earliest Staunton chessmen produced between 1849-1850, but with the magnificent new Camaratta Knight design.Because the players would be playing on DGT Project Electronic Sensor Boards, it was decided that the Chessmen would need to feature a 3.75" King Height, allowing it to fully adhere to both USCF and FIDE tournament rules. And the Sinquefield Cup Official Chessmen were born!

    In cooperation with the Chess Club and Scholastic Chess Center of St. Louis, the House of Staunton is offering the 2019 Sinquefield Cup DGT Commemorative Chessmen. It is a limited edition Chess set, with a total of only 5 units available.

    Here's your chance to own a piece of chess history, featuring twelve of the greatest players in the world, including World Champion Magnus Carlson & Former World Champion Vishwanathan Anand. 

    NOTE - These are DGT-Enabled Chess Sets.

    About the Chessmen

    The House of Staunton is proud to offer another masterpiece - Camaratta Signature Series Cooke Luxury Chess Set! Combining the Staunton perfection of the Cooke set with the Maestro's Knight design from the Craftsman set, these Chessmen showcase the Maestro's passion for Greek architecture, as well as the highest standard of the Staunton pattern.


    The Cooke design is a perfect reproduction of the original Staunton-pattern chessmen, the standard by which every tournament Chess set has been designed.  


    The Chessmen are new and each set consists of 34 Chessmen, including four Queens, a standard that was introduced by The House of Staunton over 10 years ago.


    The Chess Set comes with an original manufacturer's plaque indicating the production number, with an adhesive backing that would allow it to be affixed to the underside of a Chess box. 

    About the Chess Box

    Each Chess Set comes packed in a House of Staunton Mahogany Premium Chess Box with the Sinquefield Cup  name and logo laser engraved on the lid.


    About the Signed Certificate of Authenticity

    Each Chess Set comes with a Certificate of Authenticity that was hand-signed by all twelve of the participants in the match - Magnus Carlsen •  Fabiano Caruana • Sergey Karjakin • Hikaru Nakamura • Levon Aronian  Maxime Vachier-Lagrave • Viswanathan Anand • Wesley So • Anish Giri • Ding Liren • Ian Nepomniachtchi • Shakhriyar MamedyarovUpon the completion of the event, we will put up a sample of the Signed 2019 Sinquefield Cup Certificate.

    Kingside Stamping

    What is Kingside Stamping?


    Kingside stamping was part of the original Staunton Pattern design, consisting of a King's Crown stamped into the Rook  and Knight that started on the right side (or King's Side) of the chessboard.  In Descriptive notation, it is useful for distinguishing between the Kingside and Queen's Side pieces.

    Whether you use them in your chess strategy or for historical decoration, we offer kingside Stamping on some of our chess sets!
