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:

    Mun_e_makr PSNΠριν 2 μήνες

    10:56 capturing the rook works because after white queens you can check the white king with the rook and if the king captures, then black promotes with check. The white king can’t go for the pawn because promoting would come with check (promote to knight) and it should be a draw because the e-pawn should fall soon and then white has no more past pawns.

    Agadmator keeps making mistakes, calling the wrong players moves and such. Not just in this video, but a lot of videos in the last few months. Other chess commentators don't make such constant errors, not sure I can continue watching this channel if he doesn't start paying more attention.
