The chess24 Legends of Chess is the 4th stage of the $1 million Magnus Carlsen Chess Tour and features Magnus Carlsen and his predecessors as World Champion Vishy Anand and Vladimir Kramnik. It consists of two stages, a 10-player preliminary, where each player plays each other once, followed by a knockout among the top 4. Prelim ties are played as 4-game rapid matches, while knockout ties are the best of 3 such matches. The prize fund is $150,000, with $45,000 for first place, while the winner also qualifies for the $300,000 Grand Final.
The time control is 15 minutes for all moves with a 10-second increment from move 1. The winner of a preliminary tie decided in rapid games gets 3 points. If the score is 2:2 an Armageddon game is played, where White has 5 minutes to Black's 4 but a draw counts as a win for Black. A winner in Armageddon gets 2 match points, while the loser gets 1. The knockout format is the same except before Armageddon there are two 5+3 blitz games. No draw offers are allowed before move 40. Official website:

    The new body position changes the angle of Agadmator's voice to the microphone. Hence a lower volume AND less low end on his voice. Everyone turns their volume up and now the sounds the pieces make is too loud. Not even a "Sorry 'bout that?"

Antonio: "I will give you a couple of seconds to thing about it but if you are here to enjoy the show you can watch me swim!" Antonio jumps into the sea. : "Oh... beautiful stuff... beautiful stuff... " Meadow is thirsty and tastes the sea water before jumping in. ''Yikes.... What sorcery is this?"

    Thank you for sharing the great photo of Medo and yourself swimming. You have such a positive outlook. And you have teeth braces late in life. I do too....for the next 6 months. Advice: wear your retainers when you finish the braces! Another great game, and great analysis.
