24.06.2017 19:40 Magnus Carlsen puts recent poor form behind him at Grand Tour elite rapids
Magnus Carlsen still shines in speed chess despite the world champion’s growing problems in classical tournaments. The Norwegian failed at Stavanger last week and his six-year reign as world No1 in the rankings is now under serious threat. The 26-year-old has just won the Grand Tour elite rapids in Paris, scoring an unbeaten 14/18 (two points for a win) and edging out Russia’s Alex Grischuk on 13 and Hikaru Nakamura of the US on 12. The rapids are followed this weekend by the blitz chess contest. Carlsen was world rapid chess champion in 2014 and 2015 and his Paris success raised his Fide rapid rating to a record 2900. Three years ago, when he was in his pomp and widely considered stronger than the legends Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov, all the talk was about how soon his classical chess rating would reach that ...

18.06.2017 18:42 Chess : Magnus Carlsen risks world No1 rating with slump in Stavanger
Magnus Carlsen’s chess career is in crisis and this week Norway’s 26-year-old world chess champion has been on the brink of losing the No1 ranking he has held without a break for almost six years. Carlsen was in joint last place in the Altibox Norway elite event at Stavanger, with a pack of eager rivals within one game of usurping his No1 position, but he was saved, at least for the moment, when his old rival, Russia’s Sergey Karjakin, blundered a drawn position in Thursday’s penultimate round to give the beleaguered chess champion a windfall point. Carlsen then drew with India’s Vishy Anand in Friday’s ninth and final round to total 4/9 in next to last place with just a solitary win, six draws and two defeats. After seven of the nine rounds Carlsen had not won a game, giving a drab performance and losing twice to ...
