29.05.2020 18:38 Chess : Magnus Carlsen leads arch-rival Hikaru Nakamura in Lindores semi-final
Magnus Carlsen took a commanding 3-0 first set lead on Thursday against his arch-rival, America’s chess blitz specialist Hikaru Nakamura, when the world and US champions met in a best of three sets semi-final of the Lindores Abbey Rapid. The chess event, which continues on Friday afternoon, is an online version of the 2019 tournament staged in the distillery at Newburgh, Fife, Scotland. There has been needle between the pair owing to Nakamura using his Lindores appearances to promote his own Twitch channel and another chess website, which Carlsen objected to in a strongly worded tweet. Further tweet exchanges before and during Thursday’s games have been widely interpreted as coded jibes. In the second semi-final Russia’s Daniil Dubov beat China’s Ding Liren 2.5-1.5 in the first set after the world No 3 overreached while ...
28.05.2020 17:29 Magnus Carlsen: 'My emotions are usually outside my body and that's not what you usually connect to a chess player'
Greatness cannot be achieved without sacrifice. While it is the fire that burns inside that fuels the brilliance, the pursuit for perfection can also torment, turning relationships to ashes and niggling at the soul. The gifted can be loved and disliked. They can achieve immortality but still be flawed. They are, after all, human. But, ultimately, their extraordinary talent overshadows everything. As Michael Jordan says in 'The Last Dance,' the wildly popular 10-part docuseries covering the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls season: "Winning has a price and leadership has a price." Magnus Carlsen had just been introduced to chess by his father, Henrik, when Jordan was securing his first hat trick of NBA championships with the Bulls in the early 1990s. Still progressing through elementary school, and some years away from being described as the "Mozart of Chess" by ...
27.05.2020 18:03 A Chess Prodigy's Return to Health Brings Cheer to the Game
Growing up in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, Irina Krush often went to Asser Levy Park at Coney Island and beat the men playing chess there. Many of those who fell were sharp characters, too. More than a few had been toughened by life in the former Soviet Union. But they welcomed the little girl with a ponytail, even though she often demolished them on a chessboard. “I was so small I would sit on my feet so I could reach my opponent’s pieces,” Krush, 36, recalled recently in an interview from her home in Brooklyn. “But from an early age, the chess world was a welcoming place for me. I felt like those people always rooted for me.” Almost 30 years later, that is still true. Krush grew up to become one of the stars of American chess, the only woman to earn the title of grandmaster while playing for the United States and a mainstay at international chess ...

22.05.2020 17:57 Chess : Magnus Carlsen wins despite 'terrible' form, but setbacks spark angst
Another online weekend, another first prize for the world chess champion, but Magnus Carlsen suffered angst against lower ranked opponents which continued and increased on Wednesday and Thursday as he narrowly qualified for the Lindores Abbey quarter-finals. The online Steinitz Memorial blitz was an occasion for bitter self-criticism by the 29-year-old after his opponents missed numerous chances. “I’m happier than I would have been if I hadn’t won the tournament, but that was terrible from start to finish,” said Carlsen. “Even the times I played a good game I feel I messed it up with bad technique.” His next chess event, the online version of Scotland’s distillery tournament at Lindores Abbey in Newburgh, Fife, began brightly on Tuesday. Carlsen was co-leader with 3/4 at the end of the first day and won a brilliant miniature against Levon Aronian where ...

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.

Those were very painful moments for me as a child, as only the first three places got...

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.
