If I am not mistagen, I think that it was mentioned on the broadcast once, as Staunton pieces. I knew about that company's pieces since I started chess. They are very nice but quite expensive. And plus, if the tournament provides pieces, you never use them anyway.

Unless you use it at home to study middlegame and endgame. Playing blitz otb with a friend using 100€+ pieces seems a bit weird, but that just me Smiley

I'm looking at the photos of the players at the chessboards at the US Chess Championship and seeing those huge chess pieces. Can anybody identify what this set is and where I could find this?
