12.06.2021 17:21 Chess : Garry Kasparov to make cameo comeback when Chess Grand Tour resumes
Garry Kasparov, now aged 58 and for many still the all-time No 1 chess player, will make a rare cameo comeback next month when the 2021 over-the-board Chess Grand Tour, which was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, reaches Zagreb in Croatia. Kasparov will play 18 games in the five-minute blitz section on 10-11 July, when his leading opponent will be the current world title challenger, Ian Nepomniachtchi, who is not playing the full Tour but is competing in Zagreb as a wildcard. The first five rounds of the opening Tour event, the Superbet Classic at Bucharest, have been marred by numerous theoretical draws, with only the two Romanian locals providing a combative approach. Just six of the 25 games were decisive, and all but one of those involved Constantin Lupulescu or Bogdan-Daniel Deac. Lupulescu won an entertaining chess ...
12.06.2021 17:20 How chess changed the lives of two migrant families
Like many migrant families, starting a new life in the US was not easy for the Adewumis. After fleeing persecution by Boko Haram in their native Nigeria, the family of four made their way to New York. They spent the first few months living in a homeless shelter, relying on food and financial aid from the government. But their youngest son, Tanitoluwa - Tani for short - spent those months engrossed in a new hobby: chess. He played chess, studied chess, read chess books - and he was good. So good, that after just a few months of playing chess, he won the New York State chess championship in 2019 for his age group. After that, everything changed. Tani made headlines around the world. His story was remarkable - a homeless third grader winning a prestigious chess tournament and ...

09.06.2021 17:45 Magnus Carlsen beats Wesley So at third attempt amid copycat draw gripes
Magnus Carlsen’s uneven progress through the online Meltwater Champions Tour, two chess tournament victories in six attempts, still leaves the world chess champion in pole position for the 10-player Tour final over the chessboard at San Francisco in September. There have been suggestions that the 30-year-old has lacked focus at times, and he admitted to feeling unwell on the penultimate day of last weekend’s FTX Crypto Cup, but the Norwegian still wins his share of impressive games. His hard-fought victory over Wesley So was significant as the US champion had beaten Carlsen in two previous finals and has emerged as the world No 1’s main Tour rival. One of Carlsen’s eccentricities has been his use of 1 b2-b4, the Polish/Sokolsky/orangutan discussed in ...

16.02.2021 18:53 A New Artificial Intelligence Makes Mistakes—on Purpose
It took about 50 years for computers to eviscerate humans in the venerable game of chess. A standard smartphone can now play the kind of moves that make a chess grandmaster’s head spin.
