15.12.2018 17:35 Chess : Fabiano Caruana misses another chance for world No 1 ranking
Fabiano Caruana, whose challenge for Magnus Carlsen’s world chess crown ended in a speed chess defeat last month, has been eliminated in the $300,000 London Classic semi-final by the identical process, draws in both classical games with Hikaru Nakamura, then a heavy loss, 4.5-1.5, in rapid and blitz chess. Nakamura is a specialist in fast play, so Caruana needed to make the most of White in their first classical game. Victory would also have captured Carlsen’s No 1 ranking and it looked promising when Caruana built an impressive position with queen, both rooks and a knight all aiming at Nakamura’s black king. There was a likely win by 26 g4! although the fleeting chance was harder than the Qh5 which Caruana missed in game eight of the world title match. In theory Caruana can still become No 1 this weekend if he wins both classical games in his chess match for ...
11.12.2018 18:00 On Chess : Caruana among 4 battling it out for Grand Chess Tour title in London

08.12.2018 17:58 Chess : Fabiano Caruana seeks to overtake Magnus Carlsen as world No 1
Fabiano Caruana can gain significant consolation for his world title failure next week when the defeated US challenger has an opportunity to capture the global No 1 ranking. His conqueror, Magnus Carlsen, has held the top spot unbroken since 2011, and it is one of the Norwegian’s most prized possessions. Caruana, along with his compatriot Hikaru Nakamura, Armenia’s Levon Aronian and France’s Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, are survivors from the year-long Grand Tour whose previous legs were in Brussels, Paris and St Louis. Carlsen declined the full Tour and played only in St Louis, where he tied first, because he preferred his own programme to prepare for his world title defence. Semi-final pairings for the $300,000 London Classic are Caruana v Nakamura and Aronian v Vachier-Lagrave. Each chess match consists of two classical games, two ...
07.12.2018 17:14 On Chess : Stereotypes and blundering badly
November 2018 was truly a golden month for chess. It was the culmination St. Louis grandmaster Fabiano "Fabi" Caruana’s two-year campaign to unseat world chess champion Magnus Carlsen. The 12-game match played in London grew in intensity with each successive drawn game. As the match moved to its latter stages, the risk of losing a single game caused the players to be as careful as possible with their decisions. Missed opportunities for both players could only be detected with the help of the world’s supercomputers. In one example, Fabiano missed a forced checkmate in 36 moves. In the end, for the first time in chess history, a World Chess Championship match ended with all games drawn! The play then moved into rapid chess tiebreaks, where both players had considerably less time, 30 minutes, for the entire game. On Nov. 29, Magnus decisively won ...

01.12.2018 03:27 Magnus Carlsen: 'If I had lost, it could have been my last world championship match'
As Magnus Carlsen sat in his dressing room, euphoric and chatty after finally suppressing the stubborn resistance of Fabiano Caruana to retain his world chess title, he made a stark confession. “If I had lost, it could very well have been my last world championship match.” The words came as a thunderous bolt from the blue and they are bound to send tremors through the chess world. After all, Carlsen has been the world No 1 since 2010 and would have been a warm favourite to regain his title in 2020 if he had lost. Yet, for the first time, here he was acknowledging he would have contemplated turning his back on the biggest prize in his sport at the age of 27. The brilliant Norwegian, who retained his title with a thumping 3-0 rapid-play victory over Caruana after all 12 classical games were drawn, was just as frank when asked whether he could ever again scale ...
