13.12.2019 16:53 On Chess : Grand Chess Tour Crowns 2019 Winner
Ding Liren won the 2019 Grand Chess Tour after defeating Maxime Vachier-Lagrave of France in the finals. The star Chinese grandmaster collected $150,000 for his efforts, bringing his winnings to nearly $300,000 for the tour. After winning the Sinquefield Cup in St. Louis earlier this year, Ding has come out from under the radar in the chess world and is now considered to be one of the favorites to challenge world chess champion Magnus Carlsen. The tour concluded in London on Dec. 8 and had the same format as last year. The top four finishers of the entire tour qualified for the finals, which was a combination of two classical, two rapid and four blitz games of chess. The four players were: GM Magnus Carlsen of Norway; GM Ding Liren of China; GM Levon Aronian of Armenia; GM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave of France. After having a phenomenal year, Carlsen was ...

09.12.2019 17:46 World chess champion on the verge of topping fantasy football table
Magnus Carlsen, the world’s best chess player for the last decade, is on the brink of reaching the top in another game – fantasy football. The grandmaster is enjoying his best season ever in the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) game and after Sunday’s results he climbed to the sixth position in a table of more than 7 million players worldwide. Carlsen, who is currently competing at the London Chess Classic at Olympia, puts his fantasy football success down to luck. But his FPL team, Kjell Ankedal, has consistently scored high in the overall rankings for the past four years, finishing among the top 3,000 players in the 2017–2018 league. This season, it took Carlsen just six weeks to make it into the top 1,000 and he has been climbing up the table ever since. It will not comfort anyone languishing in the FPL’s lower millions to learn that Carlsen is also an occasional model. Like many ...

07.12.2019 17:11 Chess : 'Sluggish' Carlsen loses Olympia tie-break as speed wobbles return
Magnus Carlsen in 2019 has been the most active and arguably successful world chess champion ever, yet inconsistency at speed chess has recently haunted him. The Norwegian, who turned 29 last Saturday, has won eight elite chess tournaments this year – at Wijk, Grenke, Shamkir, Lindores Abbey, Stavanger, Abidjan, Zagreb and Kolkata. That compares well with Bobby Fischer’s four wins in 1970 (Herceg Novi, Zagreb, Buenos Aires and Palma) and Garry Kasparov’s four in 1988 (Amsterdam, Belfort, Moscow, Reykjavik), although Carlsen’s total includes three speed chess events that were rarely available for the earlier legends. Since St Louis in August, however, Carlsen has hit an inconsistent streak in faster events, contrasting with his unbeaten sequence of classical games which has passed 100 and is close to the record of 110. He failed badly in the St Louis rapid and blitz chess, and ...
06.12.2019 17:30 On Chess : Magnus Carlsen Dominates In India, Grand Chess Tour Finals Begin In London
The Grand Chess Tour wrapped up the final leg of its 2019 regular season with the Tata Steel Chess Rapid & Blitz held Nov. 22-26 in Kolkata, India. This was the strongest chess tournament of its kind to be held on Indian soil. Over five days of thrilling rapid and blitz chess, reigning world champion Magnus Carlsen simply dominated the competition. He scored a record-breaking 27 out of a possible 36 points, surpassing his previous score of 26.5 points from the Cote d’Ivoire Rapid & Blitz earlier this year. “It’s a big deal for me to have a good performance here. I haven’t played so well in rapid and blitz lately, and I think with this result, I showed I’m still the man to beat,” Carlsen said. He took home $37,500 for his efforts and will certainly be the man to beat as the GCT Finals kicked off in London earlier this week. The chess competition took place at ...
