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:

    I copied this opening move for move, easiest win I ever had lol. The pieces are set up so perfectly, that unless the opponent knows what he's doing, he's bowned to fall into a trap eventually. 98% accuracy on the moves, the last half of the game you barely need to even think to know what' to play next.

    Fabrizio CastelliΠριν 3 μήνες

    This match shows the difference between a retired GM and an active (and very strong) GM. In fact the funny quote "Your kung fu is weak" sums up what Kramnik did: he tried to surprise magnus avoiding well known lines , with uncommon lines, surely spectacular and interesting , but he didn't prepare for these and neither was able to calculate them precisely. This is a useless effort, considering you are playing a 2800elo rated younger player, so I do not consider this attempt admirable, but contrariwis hopeless and destined to failure.

    Correction: Magnus hands out cheques to these guys for wins. It's the "Magnus Carlsen tour" so not legit. After king to H7, white should play Rook to G8 force an exchange, bring another queen into the game..... and Kramnik should win or at least have the advantage. How did they miss that? Carlsen pays these guys, plus it's pandemic 2020 no one is playing Carlsen seriously.... Just wait until these guys get serious against Magnus 😆
