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

    RB 70Πριν 3 μήνες

    I thought the end should have been near at 3:42 when Chucky had all of his pieces pointed in the general direction of Leko's king ... but - nope - that fizzled, and then Chucky even threw away a knight, and came from behind. I really like his games - really unorthodox; how the heck does he do it ... his brain is wired different. Was he self-taught? Musicians who are self-taught think differently from those who are classically-trained, coming up with weird chords and structures and such, which still sound great.

    I think Be2 was about trying to lure blacks bishop back to g4, where it is more vulnerable later due to Qg5 ideas, but Leko either saw it through or just didn't care, because e2 isn't that great for the bishop
