11.01.2019 18:28 Chess : Six-way tie at Hastings after Danny Gormally misses victory chance
Hastings is the grandaddy of international chess tournaments, first staged in 1895 and held annually since 1920 apart from war years. Its vintage periods were in the 1930s, 50s and 70s when chess legends including almost all the world chess champions were eager to compete while Sir George Thomas and Hugh Alexander defeated top Russians in stunning upsets. Tradition continues with generous backing from Hastings Council and Tradewise Insurance, but the event is now a shadow of its old self. The chess elite have opted for the much higher prize funds of the London Classic, the World Blitz, and Tata Steel Wijk, which starts on Saturday, is headed by the reigning world chess champion Magnus Carlsen and several of his rivals. Indian and Chinese chess grandmasters have been winners at six of the past eight Hastings, but in 2018 the large ...
10.01.2019 17:55 On Chess : The Importance Of Structuring A Chess Curriculum
Like many other titled chess players, I have had the opportunity to be a long-term coach for many young chess talents. Shaping a new generation of players is an honor and an important responsibility. Hence, I am often searching for ways to communicate complex ideas in the simplest possible form. My views are certainly influenced by my academic background. I recently completed my Ph.D. in applied mathematics, and I have spent the last five years teaching college mathematics, reading scientific papers and conducting my own academic research. Given my experiences outside the chess world, I have always felt that our beloved sport lacks the scientific approach that other disciplines have. In mathematics, there is a clearly delineated sequence of topics that should be covered, and every student is expected to learn these topics before ...

05.01.2019 04:04 Chess : Magnus Carlsen retains world blitz title with dominant performance
It was back to business as usual for Magnus Carlsen in last weekend’s world blitz chess championship at St Petersburg. Norway’s world No 1, 28, had earlier made a dreadful start of two losses in the 15-minute rapid chess championship, and his subsequent recovery fell half a point short of the young Russian Daniil Dubov. But in the 21-round blitz, defined as three minutes per player for the entire game plus a two seconds per move increment, Carlsen was pushing from the start. Admittedly he rode his luck on occasions, and in the very first round his opponent could have trivially drawn a bishop and pawns ending by non-committal moves but instead exchanged off into a lost pawn ending. The pivotal moment came on the first day in rounds seven and eight when Carlsen outclassed first Jan-Krzysztof Duda, the 20-year-old Polish No 1 who will soon be among the chess elite, and ...
