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

    "You should always respect a piece, especially if it is a knight" around 7:40. Interesting. Did you mean to suggest knights are often better than bishops or was that not intentional? I would think most GMs feel the opposite, but obviously big discussion...

    #agadmator at 8:27 there is a better move for white > Knight E3 with the attack on the rook? after that rook has to protect b3 pawn if he does with c3 you go knight d5 with the attack on that c3 rook + threatening fork on f6

    @agadmator's Chess Channel, 14:13 , can we play Rd1+ instead, since Rxd1 leads to cxd1=Q+, where black is winning. Stockfish 10 recommends this move as well

    Been watching these videos for a few months now, checked out a few of the series that the channel has along with daily videos. I used to enjoy playing chess but never really understood what i was doing in terms of strategy. I had a few friends who liked to play when we drank or were hanging out. I used to lose to one of them every game (he took incredibly long to make moves but we never used a timer). Last night i beat him in a really close game and all i could think was "captures, captures, captures"

    Nice game! Anyway I think blitz and rapid have nothing to do with classical chess and the idea of short matches for the world championship, and then rapid, it's awful to me. And in the latest years we are seeing how 12 games are fckn ridiculous number of games for todays top level chess to make the best demonstrate he is Infact. And more and more often we have to go for rapid.. What wc is it a wc decided with rapid games?!? Not even to mention the fact that some players can be worse in normal games and very strong at rapid so completely alternating the result of what Shoud be the most important chess event in the world..

  34. leonardo baracchi

    I can't believe that Bxe4 and Nc3 is the way to go for Gelfand at 6:32. He allows Anand to set his pawns in motion with tempo. I'm curious to know what an engine would suggest instead. Maybe Bf4?
