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: chess24.com/tour

    Whats wild is, i've heard magnus described as lazy. Imagine that. If there's any truth to that at all, then Magnus is beyond genius to be as dominant as he in and not put in the maximal amount of work. What that would mean is that Magus, as great as he is, has not fully realized his potential. But he's getting older, and his window for truly maximizing his unbelievable gift is shortening. Im not implying he hasn't worked, by any stretch. I just want to see the genius develop to its nth degree.

    6:11 "Reminiscent of Vassily's c5 move against Kasparov in their 1991 Linares clash, where he just freed the c4 square for his knight. Not any connection to this game. I just thought of it when I saw c5." I love commentary like this.

    hey hello hey Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. john 14:6-7 do not use The Lord's Name in vain instead honor God love God with all heart soul and mind and love your neighbor as yourself, believe in The One God has sent Jesus Christ for this is The Work of God in Jesus Name we pray amen That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. romans 10:9-13 only God Jesus The Holy Spirit are perfect and when we come to Jesus we can be saved for by His blood our sins are forgiven and when we believe we are saved, i encourage you to read your Bible for it alone is God's Word for us and invite The Holy Spirit into your life for it is God's Word and Spirit that give light and life to all for Jesus is The Living Word and all who believe in Jesus are saved and have passed over from death to life. they re no longer separated from God for eternity but have life and peace with God and Jesus forevermore, instead of being condemned to the lake of fire we have life in the new heaven the new earth and the new jerusalem where there is no more death or mourning or sorrow or crying or pain or sin for Jesus bore them all on the cross taking them away forevermore and when we truly believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior we are saved in Jesus Name we pray amen come into The Kingdom of Light accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior today amen amen For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son john 3:16-18 come to know Jesus today He died on the cross for our sins and rose again, so we can live with Him forever because He loves us, by His blood He has victory over sin, death and hell amen. God Jesus The Holy Spirit love you amen God bless amen :)

    From thisnicklldo Hello. Ne7 Qe8, Nxc8 axb5, and the knight on c8 is lost, so 2 knights for the rook, and white is down material with his best pieces gone. Of course, if it was me in that position as Black, Chucky would still beat me easily, but that's because I am a patzer, Magnus would win fairly easily from there I think, or at least draw easily.

    Carlsen vs Ivanchuk is always a joy to witness. Especially when Ivanchuk wins, but when it's a real fight like this, I'm happier that the game happened at all. From the leap Chucky made as he checkmated Magnus over the board during the 2012 World Blitz Championship to the infamous gatekeeper of the 2013 Candidates Tournament where he put Magnus in the position where he might need to go into tie-breaks by defeating him in a beautiful Taimonov Sicilian and then showed mercy by taking down Kramnik in the final round so there would be no such tie-break... Sorry, I'm in Ivanchuk fanboy mode...

    Vasyl is not a blitz player. Give him 5 more minutes he would have won

    I don't think that a former Blitz World Champion is not " a blitz player"

    Ivanchuk is in time trouble and then he blundered. Magnus plays bullet chess so much online and he had no problem playing fast.

    the rapid tournament should be a rapid armageddon..not a blitz version. 15 minutes vs 10 minutes would be much better.

    Of course Armageddon is better than a coin toss. Everything is better than a coin toss. Even a box match between the two of them would be better to decide a winner than a stupid coin toss.

    My fav player is Magnus. But whenever Chucky loses it upsets me a lot.
