30.11.2020 17:08 Chess : Magnus Carlsen reaches Skilling semi-finals despite mouse slip
Magnus Carlsen survived a first-round shock at this week’s $100,000 Skilling Open when the world chess champion, in a winning position against Russia’s No 1, Ian Nepomniachtchi, blundered his queen by a mouse slip. Earlier, Carlsen had tweeted his comment about the furore over Beth Harmon and The Queen’s Gambit. He quickly recovered with three straight wins and won the 16-player qualifier for Wednesday’s quarter-finals. There Carlsen was close to defeat against Anish Giri, but later ground out a trademark endgame win against the Dutchman in a rook and bishop endgame where the Norwegian was a pawn down. Carlsen later described the 51-move game as “a classical case of being worse, then slightly worse, then equal, then slightly better, then much better, then finally winning!” In the overall match Carlsen won 1-0 with seven draws, which ...

16.11.2020 18:02 Chess : England junior talent manager says 'growth mindset' key to progress
Peter Wells may not be a familiar chess name, but the 55-year-old is on a mission. Wells has a key role in efforts to restore England’s current low ranking in junior chess to nearer to what it was 40 years ago. At that time a galaxy of talents led by Nigel Short and Michael Adams were equal rivals to their contemporaries in the former USSR, while teams of English teenagers scored heavily in simultaneous matches against Soviet grandmasters, right up to Anatoly Karpov and Boris Spassky. The man who famously lost to Bobby Fischer in Reykjavik described his January 1979 encounter with England juniors as “hard bread” and “my worst ever simul result”. Wells, who on that day 41 years ago was British under-14 co-champion and drew his game against the legendary Russian, is now manager of the English Chess Federation’s Accelerator Programme, which ...

13.11.2020 16:17 How 'The Queen's Gambit' Started a New Debate About Sexism in Chess
Judit Polgar might be the one woman in the world who knows how Beth, the heroine of the hit Netflix series “The Queen’s Gambit,” really feels. Like Beth, Polgar, who is from Hungary, stood out during her chess career because she regularly beat the world’s top chess players, including Garry Kasparov in 2002, when he was ranked No. 1. Polgar, the only woman to ever be ranked in the Top 10 or to play for the overall world chess championship, retired from competitive chess in 2014. Watching the series, which she described as an “incredible performance,” gave her a sense of déjà vu, particularly in the later episodes. But there was one respect in which she could not identify with Beth’s experience: how the male chess competitors treated her. “They were too nice to her,” Polgar said. When she was proving herself and rising in the world chess rankings, Polgar said ...
