14.01.2017 18:44 Absence of rivals means Magnus Carlsen can aim for supremacy at Wijk
The most famous chess tournament on the planet, Tata Steel Wijk aan Zee in the Netherlands, starts its 2017 edition this weekend with the first round free and live to watch online from 12.30pm on Saturday. Its central theme will be Magnus Carlsen’s attempt to win by a clear margin and so reinforce the 26-year-old world chess champion’s ambitions to establish himself as the best player of all time ahead of the legends Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov. Carlsen has a good opportunity because three of his major chess rivals, the world No2, Fabiano Caruana, and the dangerous Hikaru Nakamura from the US as well as France’s world No5, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, have all preferred to play at Tradewise Gibraltar, which starts on 24 January and is cementing its reputation as the best organised and strongest open chess tournament. The Norwegian still ...

06.01.2017 18:25 Ramesh Praggnanandhaa and Nodirbek Abdusattorov race to break world record
Replete with tradition, the Hastings congress reached age 97 this week. It has been staged almost every year since 1920, at a historic venue where 10 world chess champions have played. The event’s peak years are long past but it has gained a new lease of life as the backing of Tradewise Insurance has augmented funds from its loyal borough council. Hastings 2016-17, which ended on Thursday, produced an exceptional individual result. Hastings has always been a proving ground for young chess talent and this year it was Ramesh Praggnanandhaa, at 11 the youngest ever international master, who claimed attention. His games were featured daily on the congress website, which was transformed and upgraded from previous years, and it made online viewing a pleasure. The Indian chess prodigy occasionally rode his luck at Hastings, but he remained ...

Bobby Fischer became the youngest chess grandmaster in 1958 at the age of 15. When he faced Boris Spassky in Santa Monica in 1966 under Jacqueline Piatigorsky’s watchful eye, his record was still intact. The year 1966 was memorable. It was the first year I played chess as a grandmaster. “A grand...

05.12.2016 19:04 Nerves of steel: Chess Grandmasters prove their mettle
Preparing for victory means nothing if you’re not prepared to win.
