27.02.2021 18:13 Chess : US giants fail as Grenke Bank win first World Corporate Championship
Germany’s Grenke Bank won last weekend’s inaugural World Corporate Chess Championship when a last-minute back-rank mate from a lost position in the final defeated the top-seeded Russians, SBER, led by the world No 4, Ian Nepomniachtchi. The entry of 288 chess teams was far above expectations, and included many famous names. To allow for time differences, there were six preliminary groups based on Europe and two based on the US. The last two were filled with global mega-companies, but the group winners were from Mexico and Indonesia. Chess teams had to include at least one male and one female player. One guest per team was allowed but all others had to work for the company and be rated below 2500, grandmaster level. Grenke’s backing has already made Baden-Baden, which houses its headquarters, the leading club team in ...
26.02.2021 17:14 Mind Games: How The Internet Might Elevate Women In Chess
As many fans of the Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit will attest, this is not just a story about chess, but a story about women and power, or lack thereof, in a testosterone-driven theater of combat. The story examines how a particularly gifted chess player might outplay someone not just on the merits, but with the gender-driven mind games that invariably come to play in live confrontation. The Queen’s Gambit suggests that gender-blind intellectual superiority, if given a chance, might permanently challenge sexist assumptions. The fact is, the world of organized chess — which a friend of mine recently compared to organized boxing — consistently ranks women chess players lower than men. There are several reasons, chess fans have speculated. First, there are far fewer women participating in the sport than men; the few the chess players, the fewer in ...
26.02.2021 17:11 Three Chess Masters on the Sets and Strategy Manuals They Swear By
Though I’ve never been the most incredible chess player, I’ve always loved chess. It was a staple in my household growing up—my parents owned multiple chessboards of varying shapes and sizes, from a standard wooden set to a magnetic, foldable board for car rides to a mini plastic one bundled in with other strategy games like checkers and backgammon. I played chess often with my dad and sister, while also challenging bots online. While I never played competitively through school or a club, I’ve continued to play on a casual basis over the years, challenging friends at bars or sparring in blitz matches with players all over the world—India, Romania, Japan, Nigeria—through the online chess app. These days, I’m clearly not alone; chess is having a unique cultural moment. As people have sought new hobbies while housebound, and as pop culture ...

19.02.2021 17:29 Chess : Wesley So uses repertoire to extend Magnus Carlsen's barren streak
Wesley So, the US champion, who won the online Skilling Open in November to spoil Magnus Carlsen’s 30th birthday, achieved a double against the out of form world chess champion in last weekend’s Opera Euro Rapid. The 27-year-old from Minnetonka, Minnesota, was helped by his publicly available Lifetime Repertoire when defeating the Norwegian 2-2, 2.5-1.5 in the two-set final, and the score understated the ex-Filipino’s superiority. So also won their individual game in the 16-player preliminaries and agreed a draw in a winning position in the fourth game of the second set in order to clinch the chess match. The encounter was not straightforward for either player. In game two of the first set, So obtained a winning position but forgot his own analysis, exchanged queens at the wrong moment and lost. Carlsen could have tied the chess match 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.

30.01.2021 18:11 On Chess : Chess & Life – Strategy Across The Board
