World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen tops the field for the Airthings Masters, the 2nd stage of the Champions Chess Tour. The 12-player event will be played online on chess24 from December 26th to January 3rd and, as the first Major of the tour, features a $200,000 prize fund with $60,000 for 1st place. The winner also qualifies directly to the Grand Final in September 2021.
The tournament starts with a 3-day preliminary stage where the players play each other once before the top 8 go forward to a knockout. The time control is 15 minutes for all moves, with a 10-second increment from move 1. No draw offers are allowed before move 40. Official website:

    On the plus side I won the game for Dubov with Rxa5. On the downside I probably already lost it for him sacking the knight on h6 in the previous stop and think. So I think on average that makes me equally as good as Dubov.. Now I can go back to contentedly blundering pieces on for no reason.

    Suggestion: Every time there's something wrong with the chess app user interface, you can see that two squares are highlighter. For example at 01:12 you can see that squares D2 and D4 are highlighted for some reason. And that's usually the indication something is wrong. As if it "remembers" the first move before the move is even played. So, it should be investigated what was clicked just before the two squares got highlighted. That last action is usually what triggers the bug. Also, bug report should be sent to the people who are developing the app. Everyone always waits until "someone else" sends the bug report..... so nobody does it. And hence, bug never gets fixed. That's my experience from both viewpoints, as a computer programmer AND software user.

    Why wont Nxh6 work at the point of the video pause? It seems to me it still leads to the royal fork with queen capturing h4.At the very least an uncomfortable king walk leading to mate. Im sure The other methods are more precise but to me Nxh6 is forcing as well and pins the king in the corner. Guess this is why im only 1600+ player lol.Great video.

    Hi Agad! As one spanish fan I am, I would like to explain to you how names work in Spain. Setting David as an example, his name is David and then we have two surnames: Antón is his father's surname and Guijarro is his mother's surname. So It would be more correct to call him just Antón or David Antón instead of Guijarro as it is what we usually do here in Spain. Thank you very much for your content and I'm looking forward to seeing more of Antón's games in this channel :D
