20.11.2018 17:42 Magnus Carlsen saves draw as Fabiano Caruana falters in Game 8
Eight straight draws and a 4-all deadlock. We’re inching closer to a potential tie-breaker, where Carlsen will be a considerable favorite in a series of matches under shorter time controls. After all the Norwegian is the world’s No 1 rapid chess player and No 1 blitz chess player (compared to Caruana’s respective ratings of No 8 and No 16). He’s also got experience on the stage having retained the title in the tie-break stage against Sergey Karjakin two years ago in New York. But he believes there’s plenty of road to go when asked about it. “If it gets to [the tie-breaker] I’m going to take it and try and make the most of it,” Carlsen says. “There’s a lot of chess to be played and before we may come to that time, I’m sure there will be twists and turns to come. We both have two white games each. But as for today I’m obviously happy with ...

17.11.2018 18:01 Magnus Carlsen barely saves draw as Fabiano Caruana misses win in Game 6 thriller
“I was just way too casual,” says Carlsen when asked to explain Friday’s near-upset. Yet there was nothing nonchalant about the Norwegian’s dogged fightback to salvage a draw in a game that could have, at least temporarily, cost him the world No 1 chess ranking that he’d held for more than seven years uninterrupted. The chess champion, who famously claimed he doesn’t believe in fortresses during his world title defense against Sergey Karjakin two years ago in New York, took refuge in a defensive structure and moved with precision and ingenuity throughout the tense endgame, even as the Stockfish evaluation engine found a forced mate in 30 moves for black after 67. Kg6. ...

16.11.2018 18:16 Chess: Magnus Carlsen v Fabiano Caruana match remains tightly poised
As the encounter reaches the halfway stage, all the games have been drawn so far and the challenger will be aware of the world No 1’s undefeated record in play-offs. It is still level pegging, 2.5-2.5, in the €1m, 12-game world chess championship match where Friday’s sixth game and Sunday’s seventh may determine whether Magnus Carlsen’s long-term match strategy of choosing Black at the start has paid off. Carlsen will regret his missed chances in game one where Fabiano Caruana, new to high level match-play, was too cautious, passive, and slow on the clock, allowing the chess champion to dominate. Game one of a world title series has a significant history of decisive results, dating right back to Wilhelm Steinitz v Johannes Zukertort in 1886. Alexander Alekhine won four game ones in five title matches, starting in 1927 when ...
16.11.2018 18:14 On Chess : In world championship chess , winning comes down to the smartest guy
What does smart look like? The World Chess Championship has always been about who is the smartest. And if you look back on our champions, there's a history of what smart has looked like. In the 1700s, the aristocrats were considered the smartest, the power of their fathers flowed from their soft hands into the pieces. And the low-born simply could not resist the patriarchal wisdom with which the well-dressed were endowed. Until the guillotine was invented. Then the proles started crushing it. They often looked like ragamuffins, unkempt and literally bent out of shape. And they were poor. We called them savants and geniuses and we imagined that they had a romantic connection to the sublime. Like priests, they offered us a way of thinking about knowledge and its acquisition as a spiritual pursuit. If you've driven past the commemorative banner at ...

15.11.2018 22:05 Magnus Carlsen thwarts Game 5 ambush in draw with Fabiano Caruana
Magnus Carlsen and Fabiano Caruana played to a fifth draw in as many games on Thursday in the latest episode of their world chess championship showdown in London, as the Norwegian champion adroitly weathered early fireworks to negotiate a peaceful result after 34 moves and three-and-a-quarter hours. Caruana, playing with the white pieces, led with a Rossolimo (1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 g6), marking the third time in a week the players opened with the Sicilian variation. The American was first to deviate with 4. O-O, then prompted gasps with 6. b4!?, a highly aggressive move offering a pawn sacrifice with the hope of creating pressure and confusion and, ideally, winning chances in the long term. The challenger settled into a comfortable position, but Carlsen was able to escape from immediate danger shortly after ...
13.11.2018 02:56 Magnus Carlsen forced to hold on for Game 2 draw with Fabiano Caruana
Caruana, who was made to scratch and claw over seven punishing hours for a draw in Game 1, showed excellent preparation today and had Carlsen on the back foot from the jump.

10.11.2018 17:59 Clash of chess stars ends in dramatic draw after seven gruelling hours
The opening game of a world chess championship is often tense and overly tepid. But there was fire on the board in London as the Norwegian chess champion Magnus Carlsen sacrificed a pawn for a venomous attack against his challenger Fabiano Caruana, only to throw away victory in a dramatic time scram...

Fabiano Caruana did not start playing chess in Brooklyn, New York when he was five years old because his mom thought he’d be a future grandmaster, or that he’d one day play for the World Chess Championship, just like fellow Brooklynite Bobby Fischer did back in the early 1970s. No, Caruana’s m...
