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:

Just like s behind the scenes view of you and your setup, doing your work. Also curious how you quickly can manage the pieces on the board, all the arrows, the video clips, the morphy head, etc. You do everything so efficiently.

    (I am no experienced player.) At 8:51 I would have gone directly for Nxd3... threatening Qxb2 mate. Enemy knight would have lost support from d3 pawn and can't be moved away in order to prevent mate. White is in trouble. If c2xNd3 then Rf1+. If Ka2 Qb3 mate. If Kc2 Qb3+. and continue the king hunting.

    8:49 I found instead Nxd3 followed by the queen and rook coming to the back rank. And if the knight isn't captured and instead the queen gives check on g1, you can block the check with the queen. Black should at least be able to go into an endgame with 2 extra pawns.
