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

    It's always the same: Ding Liren : Ding : the name Boris Gelfand : Gelfand : the name. So when you call Boris, Boris, you have to call Liren Liren.

    Okay, this is getting spooky. Same thing as in the last of your videos I watched: I liked d5, but then I was sad when I found out it wasn't the right idea. But then I was happy again when I found out that Boris played it. But then I was sad again when I found out that it lost.

    Gelfand is truly, the legend, who dominated chess world for 3 decades, and still managed to destroy the third best chess player, currently. That right outta retirement. 😂. His book "Positional Decision Making In chess", is a chess classic, and I'm hugely influenced by his book, as it's really a groundbreaking work. This game really shows, old school players can annihilate anyone

    The power of Boris! Ding fought like a good chap he is, but of course could not handle it in the end, and lost the match to an unstoppable force. What an illuminating example of chess superior. Truly humbling experience. I'm sure Ding loved this master lesson! And no charge taken, an admirable gesture from Gelfand.
