24.01.2021 18:02 Chess : Carlsen starts well but slows as Swedish outsider impresses at Wijk
Magnus Carlsen launched his campaign at Tata Steel Wijk aan Zee, the “chess Wimbledon”, in style as the world chess champion elegantly defeated the rising star Alireza Firouzja, 17, with an imaginative attack. Then the script went awry, as Carlsen’s next five results were all grinding draws against much lower-ranked opponents, while his limelight was stolen from an unexpected quarter. Nils Grandelius, 27, Sweden’s No 1 but regarded as just a journeyman grandmaster, surged at the start with three wins including an impressive crushing of France’s world No 5, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave. Carlsen’s chess performances throughout 2020 were commanding, nine online tournament victories plus first prize over-the-board in Stavanger, until right at the end of the year when America’s Wesley So upset his planned 30th birthday victory celebration, followed by ...
24.01.2021 18:01 On Chess : Chess And The Arts
Chess became a source of inspiration in the arts and in literature soon after the spread of the game to the Middle East and Europe in the Middle Ages. And it continues to command a formative impact on the arts today. Chess creates a magical, imaginative narrative with powerful characters and drama, filled with great loss but also great triumphs. For centuries, artists have used chess as their muse to create paintings, sculptures and literature. Some have even created elaborate physical chess sets. Let’s examine some of the most famous artists, pieces and chess integrations across genres: In the Palatine Chapel in the Norman Palace in Palermo, the first known painting of a chess game is displayed. The piece is estimated to be from 1143. Largely regarded as one of the most influential works of chess-related arts is “Scacchia ludus” by artist Marco Girolamo. It centers on ...

18.01.2021 17:04 Magnus Carlsen facing challenges both old and new at ' Chess Wimbledon'
Magnus Carlsen faces a major and immediate test of his chess skills in the opening round of Wijk aan Zee on Saturday. Friday’s draw for pairings gave Norway’s world chess champion the white pieces against Alireza Firouzja, the brilliant Iran-born teenager who is widely considered the heir apparent to Carlsen’s throne. Wijk aan Zee is referred to as the “chess Wimbledon” and is Carlsen’s favourite chess event. Round one starts at 1pm on Saturday, with rest days on 20, 25 and 28 January before the final round on 31 January. Live commentary will be available on major chess sites. Wijk is the chess tournament where Carlsen struts his stuff, a showpiece for the No 1’s all-round skills, a venue where he has seen off many major rivals and ambitious new chess talents. His recent setbacks online are a different matter: rapid and blitz chess at fast time limits, where a missed tactic or ...
10.01.2021 18:55 The joys of being an absolute beginner – for life
One day a number of years ago, I was deep into a game of draughts on holiday with my daughter, then almost four, in the small library of a beachfront town. Her eye drifted to a nearby table, where a black-and-white board bristled with far more interesting figures (many a future chess master has been innocently drawn in by “horses” and “castles”). “What’s that?” she asked. “Chess,” I replied. “Can we play?” she pleaded. I nodded absently. There was just one problem: I didn’t know how to play chess. I dimly remembered having learned the basic moves as a kid, but chess had never stuck. This fact vaguely haunted me through my life. I would see an idle chessboard in a hotel lobby or a puzzle in a weekend newspaper supplement, and feel a pang. I had picked up a general awareness of chess. I knew the names Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov. I knew that ...
