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:

    see it depends what has bin revealed to you may be paul thought he was doing the right thing and he was persecuting the church then it was shown to him may be before he might of thought he was like a canadian soldier going to take out germans but actually he was persecuting the canadians soldiers which would be like the christian army. 43 Then what happened? Along came human life. All of our bodies was all laying right here on the earth at that day, if we come from the earth, and we do, and our bodies are made by the earth. We are the dead substance of dead cattle and dead sheep and fish, dead beans, dead potatoes, and dead wheat. The stuff that we eat multiply cells and make us what we are. We are from the earth; that’s what we are.We live because something died. If you don’t live today, if you don’t eat dead substance, you can’t live. Our natural life is only by dead substance. We eat fish; the fish died. If we eat beef, the cow died. If we eat bread, the wheat died. Something has to die so we physically can live again, because we are substance of the earth, and that’s the way we take in the substance to keep us alive. And if something had to die so we could live physically again, why not this immortal soul in you? Something had to die so that could live Eternally. The flower has perpetual life, for it’s here for a purpose of beauty. We have immortal life. 57-0113 - What Does It Take To Make A Christian Life? Rev. William Marrion Branham And the God Almighty being my Judge, right up here this side of Salem, them squirrels come into existence where there is no squirrels at. 209 I have been honest with you people, just as honest as I knowed how to be. Oh, I might have contradicted some beliefs that you have in little theology and things. But, the reason that I do that, Paul said, “If an angel from Heaven comes and preaches any other thing but what that Bible says,” and what he’s taught, “let him be accursed.” 210 So, I have to follow just what the Bible said. If the Bible said, “He’s the same yesterday and forever,” I believe that. Just whatever the Bible said, that’s just exactly what I believe. I just say it like that. I didn’t have any education, didn’t have any training. I just listened to the Holy Spirit and the Bible. And so far, up to this Easter morning, for thirty-one years, He’s never let me down. 211 And I tell you that the Holy Spirit told me about that ministry coming on, for the last two or three years, and I’ve been telling the churches everywhere. And the God Almighty being my Judge, right up here this side of Salem, them squirrels come into existence where there is no squirrels at. Right down there with Charlie, standing back there, and lots of them down here in Kentucky; them squirrels come right into places where they wasn’t, told where it would be. Where Tony and them, Banks, sitting there. And there it was, exactly. Come right back, and the first human being it was ever spoke on, was that woman sitting right there, and there it is. The other morning up there, when I was sick with that throat condition, I seen Jesus standing before me, and He told me that the ministry is already confirmed to me. 60-0417m - Go, Tell Rev. William Marrion Branham 200 Now let me say to the waiting audience: This is God’s Word, Who I…What I’ve lived by, and will die by, by God’s grace and help. God being my solemn Judge, I’ve told you the Truth. I seen, and all these things coming up to it. Even from the little fish that was raised down there, did you ever hear that story? There sits the men right back there, both of them, that was there when it happened; told the day before it happened. Now, how can I tell you these things which are? See, I want to preach on, one of these nights, on Counterbalance. Man could tell you something, and just keep building like that, but if there ain’t no Scripture to counterbalance it, it’ll finally fall down. If this discernment, and these visions and things that I’ve told you about, if that hadn’t been the Truth; first thing, there is a Bible to back it up, and there was the Holy Spirit to prove that I have told the Truth. 60-0417m - Go, Tell Rev. William Marrion Branham

    After the rook sacrifice I tested the position with stockfish vs stockfish. Black traded his rock and end up with 2 pawns. White managed to achieve a perpetual check with his rook so that black couldn't promote his pawns. So the position is basically a draw.
