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

    There's no mercy in online poker tournaments, or the stock market, or HALO 4, and there shouldn't be in anything else. f you want to win the ONLINE championship, you need good Internet. If your country has poor connectivity with the rest of the world, well then too bad, perhaps you can win your own country's championship, but not the World's. What's next? Participation trophies for all? Congratulations, you're all winners = congratulation, you're all losers, too.

    It isn't really fair, and this needs to be resolved and clarified. A disconnect is a disconnect. Whether it is the fault of your own Internet or a global server outage. And the rules should be clear. Now of course it would have been extremely harsh on india to lose that way, and they probably should have just replayed the matches affected. It isn't fair however to change the rules as you go along.

    I sensed a bit of an anti-India tone in Agad's comment at the end. For someone like him who researches everything before the video, I find it hard to believe he did not hear of the cloudfare outage but he conveniently left it out. And he showcased Nepo's tweet which was really cheap and below the belt in a justifiable way. And he seemed to cast doubts on Anand and Modi's tweets which were really quite reasonable. What more can one say than "congratulations" to a joint winner?? If Agad wants to continue such subtle commenting against India then simply Indians would start unsubscribing. Everyone knows what a big impact that would cause!

    Parth GotawalaΠριν μήνα

    In Armenia's game there was an issue in a one specific game, which if it wasn't the fault of internet or of chess.com too, then was most probably a momentary problem in the playing device; while here connections were lost in three games at the same time (and players were playing those games from three different locations of the country) and the server down was felt by manys not only on chess.com, but on the other online games too and was also felt in other countries too. And If it wasn't for the server issues, India would've most probably scored 3.5 in the second match or would've scored 3 points at least. So, the decision favoured no one cause India too could've been a clean winner. Obviously everyone wanted a clear winner, but still it's a win-win situation.

    Dude it wasn't that indian players disconnected due to their connectivity issue. It was a server failure. Also if this decision by fide was to to please Indian community then I must mention that there were 3 boards on wich indians has lost on connection issues in the group stage. Neither we filled any claim in that nor did FIDE was partiya towards india. It was an unfortunate thing to happen in the finals but it is what it is. If still you feel there has been some partiality then use burnol.

    All this 'pleasing Indian fans' is a load of tash. I don't think FIDE's president, who's a Russian himself, wanted to 'please' Indian fans, by risking the ire of his own countrymen. So, this tosh about pleasing someone in the finals of a global event is asinine. The decision was fair, considering factors like: match situation, global outage and improbability of unraveling what could have happened in the 3 remaining games, all of which were affected by outage (Yes, even Humpy lost close to 2 minutes). Suck it up and accept the decision. and yea...Nepo is a crybaby....being a great chess player doesn't absolve him of being one...

    Divya was winning and Nihal was in 50 50 situation the match would have been a draw and last 6 games ended in a draw so to declare both teams as winner is justified in my opinion.

    7:14 Rook f4 check seems winning? You take the white kings away from the defense of the queen and then eliminate it and the check mate comes soon. Well, not soon, but it's like a check mate threat. Facing a queen and knight with a rook and bishop is not an option especially with the b4 connected past pawn Black rook f4 White king h3 Black Queen g5 take the queen. White pawn g3 (if not then check mate with queen h4) Black Knight c1 take the rook for free. White can't take the knight with the h1 rook because queen is protecting the knight nicely. Well, you lose the f4 rook, but a queen and a knight vs a white bishop and a rook is pretty much winning. You can also gobble up the white f3 pawn after taking the rook by knight d3 f4.

    I have no idea why they didn't come up with something in advance (and stick with it)... Disconnections in online tournaments in something that has been happening in every online game ever played. They all have procedures in place to deal with it. and they follow them; In a poker tournament, if you disconnect, you keep being blinded out until you come back. So you're not eliminated, but it costs you. In a FPS tournament, usually the team has a pause button in case one of their players disconnects. I haven't see a (serious) game played online that had no procedure in place for disconnects. And if they had procedures but didn't follow them, it'd ALWAYS cause drama, and rightfully so. Also: Giving wins (or draws) to players who disconnect is a terrible idea that might get some players with poor sportsmanship to fake disconnects in the future.

    Who cares what the reason for the disconnect was. Whether it was global outage, server crash, etc. At the end of the day, Armenia's disconnection was not their fault, and India's disconnection was not their fault. But they were given different treatment, which is hypocritical. Double standards by FIDE.

If you check the C.C TV stream Simon and Jovanka clearly said Esipienko was winning as Nihal could Never castle without nasty tactics and whites pieces were Way more active and better- stockfish even gave the upper hand to him...

    People seem to think that the reason for the disconnection is the sole motivation behind FIDE's decision; maybe it was indeed different from the other disconnections and a major outage. But that does not mean that the FIDE would have reacted the same if it happened to a smaller chess community like, say, Armenia. Agad is not being biased towards Russia or Armenia; there are just no defined criteria for a «fair» disconnection and therefore, the argument seems «ad hoc». Funny enough, the decision pleases one of the biggest chess community. This is business, a business oriented decision, not an ethical one or a moral one.

    Much like the situation with Teimour Radjabov regarding the Candiates was surely not ethical or morally sound. If it had been another player, a more popular and famous one, maybe they would have reacted differently.

    Agad ... It was a global internet outage at Cloudflare which not only impacted 3 players but a lot of viewers also logged out at the same time

    This is such bs. If Russia were the one's to disconnect they would have awarded India the win, guaranteed. Can't make the brown people angry.
