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:

    Woooow what a game. The attack was so subtle at first yet so relentless. And Nepo was finding most improbable defensive resources. As the old saying goes, it takes two tp create brilliancy. Giri missed the chance for a draw at 10:30 :) And just today, I wad watching Danya and Charlie, and Danya was explaining that at higher level, not all attacks end in checkmate, but sometimes you end up in a simplified position being a pawn or two up and that is considered successful attack. This game illustrates it perfectly.

    What a game seeing how many pieces were hanging but none of them were capturable. Thanks Agad for this great game. But sadly it was Ian who progressed into the finals. The reason why I am sad is Ian brags a lot. You must have noticed in the stream during the post match interview when he won the the 3rd match in the 2nd blitz section to progress into the finals.

    wow I missed this game. Their most other games was boring as hell watching them on twitch. By the way at the crucial point 6:42 I found Knight f6 maybe even stronger? If Qeen takes. then Rook takes d5. The point is to remove the powerful knight on d5 and really takes control on the centre and gives possibilities to attack Rook and compromise the exposed black king

    hi agadmator, #suggestion, are you interested in any of Stockfish+NNUE vs. Leela Chess Zero (lc0) games ?! (in's CCC, or the blitz games by CCRL) I am quite into chess engines, and what makes most programmers and chess engines enthusiasts like it so much, is it combines both worlds of Stockfish Search Depth (Calculation ability) and Neural Networks (AZ ,lc0 .. etc) Positional "training" and understanding latest versions of Stockfish+NNUE has an evaluation function very close to Lc0 in many positions between them, however, Lc0 reaches around 8 plies (half-moves) ahead, while Stockfish+NNUE reaches about 30 plies ahead (a technical note: AB-Search is faster and takes less time to get to higher depths, and performs better generally, like Komodo has an MCTS-search version of their engine, and the normal Komodo (with AB is about 50 elo better (or even more) another technical note, Lc0's Neural Network theoretically contains a lot of information than Stockfish+NNUE, whether or not this information can be condensed (distilled is the technical term) into NNUE is still an open question, however smaller CPU-Friendly Lc0 NN versions, are very close to the bigger one so all in all, it is hard for NNUE to reach the same positional understanding in its evaluation function, however it is possible, while in Lc0's world it is virtually impossible to reach 30 plies depth (also a strange and interesting thing, NNUE reaches around 200 plies ahead when at late middlegame (probably thinking whether or not to switch into a specific endgame) which even the normal stockfish doesn't, however in that specific case the nodes are a bit more narrow (it seems like in that phase, NNUE have learned a new kind of Forcing Moves ?!, no one knows yet, and BTW a dev version NNUE beats a dev version of stockfish in 100 book moves games, so it is very tricky to know where this is going, but all in all very interesting and may revolutionize our modern chess playing and understanding ?!

    Thanks so much for how patiently you explain the rationale behind every move.

Thanks to your teaching, more than half my games at this level are now competitive and I'm winning more and more of them.

    36 You have a choice of the church, here in America, so far, that you can go to. That’s your own American privilege, to choose any church that you want to belong to. That’s a choice. You don’t have to go to any of them, if you don’t want to. But if you want to change from the Methodist to the Baptist, or the Catholic to a Protestant, or so forth, there’s nobody can tell you or make you come to any certain church. That’s our-that’s our freedom. That’s what our democracy is. Every man can choose for himself. Freedom of religion, and that’s a-a great thing. God help us to keep it as long as we can. 65-0429e - The Choosing Of A Bride Rev. William Marrion Branham

  47. Joshua Koenig

    Joshua KoenigΠριν 2 μήνες 29 Now I want to take for a subject, tonight, for that: The Choosing Of A Bride. And this is, if my brother that records here will, this is the tape that you can go ahead and let out. 30 And now, in this, it doesn’t exactly mean that I’m speaking this to this congregation present, but these tapes go around the world. They’re translated in, practically, oh, a great deal of the languages, even into the heathen lands around the world. We send them tapes, free, on a society of the church. And they’re translated. And all out through the jungles of Africa, and to India, and around the world, goes these tapes. Now, choosing a Bride! 31 In many things of life we are given a choice. The way of life, itself, is a choice. We have a right to make our own way, choose our own way that we want to live. 32 Education is a choice. We can choose whether we’re going to be educated, or whether we are not going to be educated. That’s a choice that we have. 33 Right and wrong is a choice. Every man, every woman, boy and girl, has to choose whether they are going to try to live right or not live right. It’s a choice. Choice is a great thing. 34 Your Eternal destination is a choice. And maybe, tonight, some of you will make that-that choice, of where you’ll spend Eternity, before this service ends tonight. There’ll be one time, that, if you turned God down many time, there’ll be one time you’ll turn Him down the last time. There is a line between mercy and judgment. And it’s a dangerous thing for a man or a woman, boy or girl, to step across that line, for there’s no return when you step across that deadline. So, tonight, it might be the time that many will make their-their decision, where they will spend the endless Eternity. 35 There’s another choice that we have in life, that’s, a life’s companion. A young man or young woman, stepping out on life, has-has been given a right to make a choice. The young man chooses. The young woman has a right to accept or reject it. But it’s still a choice, on both sides. Both man and woman, they have a right to choice. Also, you have a choice, as a Christian. 36 You have a choice of the church, here in America, so far, that you can go to. That’s your own American privilege, to choose any church that you want to belong to. That’s a choice. You don’t have to go to any of them, if you don’t want to. But if you want to change from the Methodist to the Baptist, or the Catholic to a Protestant, or so forth, there’s nobody can tell you or make you come to any certain church. That’s our-that’s our freedom. That’s what our democracy is. Every man can choose for himself. Freedom of religion, and that’s a-a great thing. God help us to keep it as long as we can. 37 You have also a choice. Whether…When you choose this church, you can choose whether you, in this church, whether you will choose a church that will guide you to your Eternal destination. You can choose a church that has a certain creed, that you might think that creed is just what you want. Or, the other church has their creed. 38 And then there is the Word of God, you have choice of. You have to make the choice. There’s an unwritten law among us, of choosing. 39 I believe it was Elijah, one time, up on Mount Carmel, after the showdown, in a great hour of the crisis that we’re just about to come to right now. And perhaps, it may be to you or I, tonight, that we make this choice, like the Mount Carmel experience. Frankly, I think it’s going on, worldwide, now. But there will soon be a time where that you’ll have to make a choice. 40 And you men here, of your denominational churches, just believe this, that the hour is right on you, when you’re going to make a choice. You’re either going to go into the World Council, or you’re not going to be a denomination anymore. You’re going to have to do that, and that choice is coming soon. 41 And it’s a dangerous thing to wait till that last hour, too, because you might take on something that you could never shake out of it. You know, there is a time when you can be warned, then, if you step across that line of warning, then you’re already marked on the other side, branded. 42 Remember, when the jubilee year come, and the-the priest rode with his trumpet sounding, that every slave could go free. But if they refused to accept their freedom, then he had to be taken to the temple, to a post, and an awl bore him through the ear, and then he served his master always. It was put on his ear as a type, of hearing. “Faith cometh by hearing.” He heard that trumpet, but he didn’t want to listen to it. 43 And many time, men and women hear God’s Truth, and see It vindicated and proven, Truth, but yet they don’t want to hear It. There’s some other reason. There’s some other choosing that they have, than to face up to Truth and facts, therefore their ears can be closed to the Gospel. They’ll never hear It again. My advice to you, when God speaks to your heart, you act right then. 44 Elijah gave them a choice, which they should: “Choose you this day whom you shall serve. If God be God, serve Him. But if Baal be God, serve him.” 45 Now, as we see that all of the natural things is a type of the spiritual things, as we went through in our lesson this morning, as the sun and his nature. That was my first Bible. Before I ever read a page in the Bible, I knew God. Because, the Bible is written everywhere in nature, and it just corresponds with the Word of God: how the death, burial, resurrection of the nature; and the sun rising, crossing, setting, dying, rising again. There’s so many things that we could type, God in nature, that we have to bypass, for this Message. 46 Now, if the spiritual, or, the natural is a type of the spiritual, then, the choosing of a bride, in the natural, is a type of choosing a Bride, the Bride, in the spiritual. 47 Now, it’s a serious thing when we go to choose a wife, a man, for the vows here is “until death do we part.” That’s how we should keep it. And you take that vow before God, that only death will separate you. And I think we should…A man in his right mind, that’s planning a future, that he should choose that wife very careful. Be careful what you’re doing. And a woman choosing a husband, or accepting the choice of a husband, should be real careful what she’s doing, and especially in these days. A man should think and pray before he chooses a wife. 48 I think, today, what’s got so many divorce cases now, that we lead the world in America, in divorce cases. We lead the rest of the world. There’s more divorces here than anywhere else, this nation, and supposed to be, and thought of, a Christian nation. What a reproach, our divorce courts! I think, the reason of it, is because that men has got away from God, and women has got away from God. 49 And we find, that, if a man prayed and a woman prayed over the matter; not just look at a pretty set of eyes, or big strong shoulders, or such as that, or some other worldly affection; but would look first to God, and say, “God, is this Your plan?” 50 I think, today, there’s so much cheating, just like in school. When-when the kids come by, of a morning, many of the kids in the neighborhood, that-that friends of mine, will come by and say, “Brother Branham, will you pray for us? We’re having a-a test today. I-I worked all night, and I don’t seem that I can-can get it settled. Pray for me.” I think that any school kid, if you would, if…And the parents at the table of a morning, you could say, “Mother, John has got a test today. Let’s pray for him now.” I think it would beat all that you could ever do in any other way, or looking over on somebody else’s paper and cheating, I think, if you just come out and pray over the matter. 51 And if we would study what we’re doing when we’re going to get married, when we choose our wife, our husband, if we’d study it over! A man should pray earnestly, for he could ruin his entire life. Remember, the vow is “until death do we part,” and he could ruin his life by making the wrong choice. But if he knows what, he making the wrong choice and is marrying a woman that isn’t fit to be his wife, and he does it anyhow, then it’s his fault. If the woman takes a husband and knows that he’s not fit to be a husband to you, then that’s your own fault, after you know what’s right and wrong. So, you shouldn’t do it until you thoroughly pray through. 52 The same applies by choosing a church. Now, you must pray over the church that you are fellowshipping in. Remember, churches carry a spirit. 53 Now, I don’t want to be critical. But I realize that I’m an old man, and I got to leave here, one of these days. And I’ve got to answer at the Day of the Judgment for what I say tonight or any other time. And I, therefore, I’ve got to be dead earnest and truly convicted. 65-0429e - The Choosing Of A Bride Rev.

    Nepo had a lot of loose pieces and I kept thinking there's too many pieces hanging, but to actually punish that play was very difficult. It took finding a brilliant move to prove what was wrong with Nepo's setup. Give him one or two more moves to consolidate and black would have had the better position because more space.

    Great attacking style from Giri, worthy of the MorphyHead. Also props to Nepo, who didn't resign early, even though ultimately he wasn't able to hold on.

    This pretty much showcases how devastating knights can be when placed on optimal squares, or when positioned to move to an optimal or attacking square after something forced. I love a position that is so good that you can sac a rook and still be crushing.

    Giri deserves every time the morphy head when he declines a draw!

    I exhaled air at 2:36 when he said "open up this diagonal", and it's just fully packed there with knights

    With all due respect do not award morphy head to anyone. Every great chess player is great and more importantly unique. You're taking away their uniqueness by giving them morphy head.

    My theory is when agadmator goes down and fixes something he is fixing his speaker volume.

    At 3:52, what if black captures with his knight? Then it's not so good of a move.
