07.08.2020 17:56 Chess : Magnus Carlsen continues record unbeaten run going into Tour finals
Another week, another new record opportunity for Magnus Carlsen. Last Tuesday the world chess champion won the $150,000 Legends of Chess final, stretched his current winning run to 19 online mini-matches, then took a few days off to prepare for the online Tour semi-finals and final which start next Sunday afternoon. Pairings for this concluding event have been kind to the Norwegian, who takes on three rivals qualified from previous Tour contests. Russia’s Daniil Dubov, the only chess player apart from Carlsen to win a final, meets the reigning US chess champion and online speed specialist, Hikaru Nakamura, in one semi-final, while in the other Carlsen, seeded No 1, plays China’s Ding Liren, who is world No 3 but seeded No 4. Ding has been seriously handicapped throughout the Tour by internet disconnections and due to the 3pm BST start has had to ...
04.08.2020 18:36 Chess : Magnus Carlsen aiming to continue his 15-match winning streak
Magnus Carlsen is on a 15-match winning streak against his major rivals this weekend. Norway’s world chess champion, whose target is to become the Goat (Greatest of All Time), starts his $150,000 Legends of Chess semi-final on Friday afternoon. At the 29-year-old’s other passion of Fantasy Premier League, though, it was a near-miss. Carlsen twice led the field of seven million earlier in the season and was fourth going into last Sunday’s matches before dropping back to 11th. Asked to explain why he is doing so well, he replied: “I don’t have obvious weaknesses in my play that they can try and exploit.” That answer sounds a homespun variant on what used to be said about Boris Spassky and later Garry Kasparov, that they had a universal style which could adapt to endgames or complex tactics, to hot opening theory or strategic grinds. Carlsen showed his range of chess skills ...

24.07.2020 18:33 Chess: Magnus Carlsen misses mate in four as over-50s shine at Legends event
Legends of Chess, the $150,000 online tournament where six veterans in their 40s and 50s are meeting Magnus Carlsen and three others from the current world top 10, got off to a surprise start on Wednesday as Carlsen missed a simple all-checking mate in four, while Israel’s Boris Gelfand, 52, world No 3 in 1990, defeated China’s current world No 3, Ding Liren, in only 16 moves. Gelfand, who narrowly lost a world title match in 2012, is still Israel’s best chess player. The veteran, who learned his skills in the old Soviet Union, defeated Ding 3-1, winning twice with Black. The highlight was the final game where Gelfand won a 16-move miniature which Ding resigned two pawns down and facing a monster black knight at e3. Such a result may sound totally one-sided, but Gelfand erred with 9…h6? (d5!) when Ding could have won by 10 Nc4! with the double threat of ...
