22.07.2016 20:41 Magnus Carlsen continues to lead march of the 1990 ‘golden generation’
The class of 1990, the most prolific year ever for the birth of top chess talent, has gone into overdrive this week. Players born in 1990 have already won the elite grandmaster tournaments at Dortmund, Germany, and Danzhou, China, while on Saturday afternoon the best of them all, the world chess champion, Magnus Carlsen, is expected to complete yet another tournament first prize at Bilbao, Spain. It is not just Carlsen from 1990 who dominates the rankings. His next title match opponent, Russia’s Sergey Karjakin, has been battling it out with the Norwegian since they were children, when Karjakin became the youngest ever grandmaster at 12. Now the chess world awaits for definite news about their championship series venue. New York was announced many months ago, but since then there has been silence. The global chess body Fide’s ...

21.07.2016 20:15 With breakthrough chess win, Nakamura ends the Carlsen jinx
It may not be 100 percent politically correct these days, but one of my old chess books talked about certain players having “hung an Indian sign on” — established an overwhelming dominance over — a rival. Morphy, in his short career, often simply outclassed the competition, including a 12-3 edge in decisive games over the German world chess champion Adolf Anderssen. Capablanca, unbeatable in his prime, ran up the score against some of the top chess players of his day, including Janowski (9-1), Bogoljubov (5-0) and longtime American champion Frank Marshall (21-2). Some head-to-head records are harder to explain. Latvian great Mikhail Tal was a world chess champ and even boasted a plus-score against Bobby Fischer, but against fellow Soviet GM Lev Polugaevsky, he had but two wins against eight losses in his chess career. Boris Spassky had ...

13.07.2016 20:33 England’s over-50s win bronze at World Senior Chess Championship
England’s over-50s team have won bronze medals at the World Senior Chess Championship for the second consecutive year, missing gold and silver by the narrowest of margins. Fielding an all-grandmaster five-man squad headed by the former elite GMs John Nunn and Jonathan Speelman supported by Mark Hebden, Keith Arkell and Glenn Flear, England were the No2 seeds in the 57-team contest in Dresden. In 2015 England fielded Nigel Short and were seeded No1 but lost crucial matches against their only serious chess rivals, Slovakia and Germany. At Dresden 2016 it was again the Germans who proved the bête noire, causing England’s only individual match defeat. Final scores were: Germany 16 match points (26.5 game points); Armenia 16 (26); England 15 (27.5). Hebden won the board three individual gold with 7.5/9. The other four ...
07.07.2016 21:34 If machines can beat us at games, does it make them more intelligent than us?
The year 1997 saw the ultimate man versus machine tournament, with chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov losing to a machine called Deep Blue. Earlier this year, in what was hailed as another breakthrough in artificial intelligence (AI) research, Google’s AlphaGo defeated a professional Go player. Go i...

27.06.2016 19:34 In Kopec’s games, a lesson from the (international) chess master
Great players don’t always make great teachers. Babe Ruth couldn’t get hired as a manager. Michael Jordan and Wayne Gretzky were nowhere near as successful building or coaching a team as they were playing on one. For chess it’s a little murkier. Tarrasch, Nimzovich and Reti were not only world...
22.06.2016 18:55 Magnus Carlsen slips up in the first leg of the Grand Tour
The world chess champion had to settle for second place at Paris this week in the $150,000 opening leg of the Grand Tour, which continues in Leuven, near Brussels, over the weekend, then crosses the Atlantic to St Louis in August before its final event at London Olympia in December. Magnus Carlsen w...
16.06.2016 19:36 Grand Ambitions for Chess
Magnus Carlsen, the World Chess Champion from Norway, is widely reputed to earn more than $1 million a year from prizes, appearance fees and sponsorships. For most people that would be a very good income. But consider that Novak Djokovic, the world’s top-ranked tennis player who is from Serbia, pi...

15.06.2016 18:27 Viktor Korchnoi enjoyed record chess run at the top
Aside from lots of checking, there isn't really much that hockey and chess have in common. But there was a real harmonic convergence with the passing last week of Gordie Howe, the late, great NHL star who earned the nickname "Mr. Hockey" while playing an incredible 26 seasons and still getting it do...
11.06.2016 19:26 England at full strength for Chess Olympiad but unlikely to challenge elite
England will field its strongest available team in the 150-nation Chess Olympiad which opens at Baku, Azerbaijan, on 1 September. Michael Adams, the world No30, will play top board followed by David Howell, Nigel Short, Luke McShane and Gawain Jones. All five rank in or close to the world top 100 gr...
07.06.2016 21:01 When mismatches make for chess masterpieces
Odd but true: Some of the most brilliant and most anthologized games in the history of chess were distinct mismatches, the equivalent of Stephen Strasburg pitching a no-hitter against a Double-A minor league team. Perhaps Paul Morphy's most famous combination was pulled off against a pair of diletta...
06.06.2016 18:58 Viktor Korchnoi obituary
Chess grandmaster regarded as the best player never to have won the world title. Viktor Korchnoi, who has died aged 85, was a chess grandmaster who defected from the Soviet Union, then twice challenged the USSR’s Anatoly Karpov for the world title. Their first contest, in 1978 in the Philippines, ...

The world title match between Norwegian chess champion Magnus Carlsen and Russian challenger Sergey Karjakin, set for New York City in November, will almost certainly be more subtle, more sophisticated, more finely balanced than the world title match that was played 150 years ago this month in Londo...
30.05.2016 19:39 Sergey Karjakin has much to prove before clash with Magnus Carlsen
Magnus Carlsen and Sergey Karjakin are both eager for action as the Norwegian and the Russian limber up for their world title match in November but it is Karjakin who has the headaches due to poor form after blundering his queen in an even position on Friday afternoon against Anish Giri, the world N...
25.05.2016 18:52 Chess: History’s Best Game?
Humans love playing games. Some have even postulated that the entire meaning of existence is a game in which the objective is to overthrow the creator of the universe. When Nietzsche quipped, “God is dead” (which was first said by the philosopher, Hegel, FYI) the celebration of the existential e...
20.05.2016 19:35 Gawain Jones and David Howell up against it in European Championship
England’s two youngest grandmasters Gawain Jones, 28, and David Howell, 25, face a tough task this weekend as they play the final rounds of the European Chess Championship at Gjakova, Kosovo. The tournament situation for Jones and Howell is precarious, and they need a winning streak. The target fo...
17.05.2016 18:56 Sometimes a chess grandmaster proves a friend in need
If you want a friend in this game, queen a pawn. OK, that's not a real chess saying, but there is this idea out there that it's an every-man-for-himself world out there among elite grandmasters, that the top chess players are lone wolves forced to hunt solo to survive. The reality is far different. ...
15.05.2016 19:43 St Petersburg secure Russian Premier League but Vlad Kramnik shines
Russia’s Premier League for chess is a mighty contest of elite grandmasters, whose strength dwarfs England’s 4NCL or France’s Top 12, and even makes Germany’s renowned Bundesliga look second division. The 2016 version at Sochi this week involved only five teams, with the three favourites all...
11.05.2016 19:53 Magnus Carlsen: the cool grandmaster who cries when he loses to himself
Wednesday marks the start of a six-month countdown to the World Chess Championship in New York, where Russia’s Sergey Karjakin will try to snatch the title from the chess champion, Magnus Carlsen from Norway, who has been hogging (sorry, holding) it since 2013. Still, how exciting is it really? Yo...
11.05.2016 19:53 Mirror image: Chess champ, challenger offer complementary styles
The world chess championship match in November in New York City may be a case of the immovable object meeting the immovable object.

Levon Aronian blew the Altibox Norway Chess tournament wide open as he defeated the world chess champion Magnus Carlsen in the eighth and penultimate round.

06.05.2016 19:22 Magnus Carlsen beats Kramnik at Norway Chess to extend unbeaten run to 42 games
Magnus Carlsen’s seventh round victory over Vladimir Kramnik at the Altibox Norway chess tournament was highly significant, both for the standings, as it extended his lead to a full point, but also for Carlsen’s self confidence as he prevailed over one of his "great predecessors" and an opponent...

30.04.2016 18:11 Magnus Carlsen wins at Stavanger but Garry Kasparov draws more interest
Magnus Carlsen, the world chess champion, won first prize outright with 6/9 at Stavanger on Friday despite faltering near the finish, while three world top-10 grandmasters topped the field at the $194,000 US chess championship at St Louis.

28.04.2016 18:53 New faces at the top: Caruana, Paikidze U.S. chess champs
There were some new names at the top and new faces making noise at the just-concluded U.S. Chess Championship and U.S. Women's Championship, which both wrapped up Monday at the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of St. Louis.
