Open Sicilians at the Isle of Man
13.10.2019 06:22 Chess : Magnus Carlsen escapes but Vishy Anand is beaten at Isle of Man
The world chess champion, Magnus Carlsen, had a narrow escape, the former chess champion Vishy Anand was brilliantly beaten, and several other elite grandmasters dropped half points as the 154-player $430,000 Grand Swiss Isle of Man event got off to a combative start on Thursday. Chess competition just now is stratified, with many events reserved for the top grandmasters and few where they are directly challenged by second-line GMs and rising talents. Isle of Man, which continues until 21 October at the Comis Hotel near Douglas, is a rare opportunity for ambitious players, and they seized it in the opening round, where the ranked top half of the field met the bottom half. With over 150 players and 11 rounds, the small group who had their eyes on a place in the 2020 candidates which will decide Carlsen’s next title challenger all expected to ...

06.10.2019 18:33 Chess : Isle of Man last chance for some of Magnus Carlsen's potential foes
Four of the eight candidates who will compete for the right to take on Magnus Carlsen for his global chess crown are now decided, and the chances for elite grandmasters who have yet to qualify are shrinking. Fide’s 160-player Grand Swiss in the Isle of Man starting on 10 October is the last-chance saloon for several eminent chess players. Ekaterinburg will stage the candidates in March-April 2020, followed by the title match itself later in the year. Monaco, Vienna and St Petersburg are rumoured to be among the contenders to host the 14-game chess championship series for which the bidding closes in March, but Stavanger withdrew after Carlsen stated that the only Norwegian venue he might accept would be his home city of Oslo. The world No 2, Fabiano Caruana, the defeated 2018 challenger, is qualified for the candidates, as are ...
