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

    @harshraj basant u can pick it up, when the knight comes back...just capture it with your light square bishop with check and then pick up the black bishop...just removing the defender of the bishop

    The part where you said that Nepo should have gone for the 3 fold repetition? White has an obligation to win, so doesn't that make a draw = loss for white?

    Just a point about the end of this game. If the standard rules of blitz apply here, Magnus could just trade all on D1 and take on B4, and if he ran out of time it would be draw. IMHO that's why Nepo didn't even try to flag Magnus.

    Jason BourneΠριν 3 μήνες

    7:50 Nepo missed a much better move so feel free to pause the video and find the best possible move. To those of you who were able to do it congratulations and to those of you who just want to enjoy the show, it's Queen to G5. This checks the king and Carlsen would lose his bishop.

  37. S. Schreiber
