28.06.2020 18:04 Chess : Carlsen routs Caruana and tops fantasy football league in winning week
Magnus Carlsen overran the world No 2, Fabiano Caruana, 2.5-0.5 in their latest meeting on Thursday, only a day after the world chess champion had topped seven million rivals to lead the Fantasy Premier League for the second time in six months. The online meeting earlier this month between the Norwegian and the American, who met over the chessboard for the world crown in 2018, had been a tight affair which Carlsen won only in the final game, but Thursday’s match was one-sided. Carlsen scored impressively at the start, won the second game from a level ending, then eased to a draw in the third. Caruana must win their next best-of-four games match on Saturday to take their $150,000 Chessable Masters quarter-final into a Monday tie-break and a likely semi-final on Tuesday against the Russian No 1, Ian Nepomniachtchi. On the evening before ...
25.06.2020 18:04 On Chess : When The Game Of Kings First Became A Game Of The People
Chess is often described as the game of kings. And it is. But there was a time when chess was also the game of those who were overthrowing their kings. That was a time when chess was the game of dangerous radicals and revolutionaries, writers and intellectuals. It was a time when men and women used coffeehouses, newspapers and salons as we use the internet to spread once-forbidden ideas and knowledge — ideas that would ultimately shatter the old order and usher in the modern world. In all the vast upheavals of the 18th century, chess was in the thick of things. It was played in taverns and inns as well as royal courts; played by misfits and disaffected intellectuals as well as kings and aristocrats. In 1784, five years before the storming of the Bastille, the German philosopher Immanuel Kant, in an essay analyzing and defending the Enlightenment, dubbed ...

13.03.2020 16:07 On Chess : 'Growth Mindset' and Confidence
When I started playing chess at 8 years old, I relished the idea of winning games.
