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:

    There was a certain doubt about my fiancee faithfulness to me. She uses a verified account and it happened that I decided to watch a video on Instagram when I came across @ trojan.horse_07 Got conversing and in no space of time sent me screenshot of disloyal discussions on her verified Instagram account . It was real , I was anxious for more and I got it all. For real. Trojan is all i got for now

    Daniel HutchinsonΠριν 2 μήνες

    The lessons Giri learnt in this match might be more valuable to him than an easy win. In the earlier Magnus tournaments it felt like the top GMs were hanging onto their ideas and saving them for the candidates when it resumes but now they seem to be playing more freely and trying out the openings they've been working on. Magnus really did something incredible with this online series of tournaments! My only disappointment is how Ding kept getting disconnected, I don't understand how China with all their technological prowess can't ensure that their top players are fully supported for these tournaments?

    Reminds me of a double blindness situation at a chess tournament in high school when I was playing a teammate of mine, W. McMeen. I had a piece that I thought was guarding a pawn to prevent checkmate, but it actually wasn't, because the piece was pinned; fortunately, my teammate thought the pawn was protected as well & failed to capitalize on my error. After I won the match, I told him he actually had the game won, but (fortunately for me) he too had been blind to that fact...! :-P

    @agadmator I'm still confused about the 'completely new game' Can't the players mix up the order of moves so that after a few more moves, a previously reached position is reached again? As in move 10 had a completely new have, but after move 17, there could be an old position right?
