14.02.2020 17:31 On Chess : Brilliancy In Chess
Compared to other arts or sports, chess is an easy game to learn but a difficult one to master. Just how difficult? Malcolm Gladwell, in his best-selling book "Outliers: the Story of Success," postulates that “the key to success in any field is, to a large extent, a matter of practicing a specific task for a total of around 10,000 hours.” However, while that might get you to the level of national master (2200), it is nowhere near the top of the ladder. The international master (2400) and grandmaster (2500) titles are well above this, yet far from becoming champion (2800+). Gladwell’s judgment is not new. Forty years ago, in a paper in American Scientist, Herbert Simon and William Chase drew one of the most famous conclusions in the study of expertise: "There are no instant experts in chess — certainly no instant masters or grandmasters. There appears ...

08.02.2020 16:48 Chess : Magnus Carlsen's betting sponsorship deal risks Fide dispute
Magnus Carlsen’s next world chess championship defence is likely to be in Dubai. The global chess body’s president, Arkady Dvorkovich, said in an interview in Gibraltar that Fide is close to signing a contract with Expo Dubai to stage the €2m, 14-game series there in November. Carlsen’s opponent will be decided by the eight-man candidates’ tournament which starts at Ekaterinburg, Russia, on 15 March, and where the United States world No 2, Fabiano Caruana, who tied the 2018 chess championship series with Carlsen before losing a speed play-off, is the favourite. There could yet be obstacles arising from the Norwegian’s controversial new two-year sponsorship deal to promote the sports betting firm Unibet and wear its logo. Carlsen’s agreement is with the Malta-based Kindred Group, which owns Unibet, where chess is one of ...
07.02.2020 17:00 On Chess : Innovation Or Tradition?
Most chess players and fans of the game can be divided into two categories: purists and innovators. Purists are traditionalists who believe that serious chess should be played at long time controls and have little to no variance in format. Innovators, on the other hand, are always looking for ways to push the envelope. They are quick to embrace rapid and blitz time controls — chess variants such as Fischer Random — and are always looking to spice up the game with different tournament formats. Of course, few people fall completely into one category. Even most devout purists understand that never-ending time controls and adjourning games until the following day is wildly impractical, and this practice was pretty much scrapped by the mid-'90s. The most daring innovator who believes that Fischer Random is the future of chess can still appreciate ...
