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

    6:22 Did I miss something? Magnus couldn't "bring the rook to b7 followed by captures" because he would lose the rook right away. Hikaru's queen was on f7 when Magnus moved the rook to 8th rank.

    2:09 When you are starting out learning chess, one of the principles you learn is to avoid having doubled pawns as much as possible. This is what you can do when you are fully familiar with the principles. You know, you are the world champion, then you can just have pawns.

    You always say "already" when telling which move was the new one, as if games regularly go 47 moves without being new. I can see "already" being used when it's 5 moves in, or even 10, but 17?!?!
