15.09.2019 17:41 Chess : Michael Adams knocked out in first round of World Cup in Siberia
The seven-times British chess champion Michael Adams was eliminated 4.5-3.5 after an eight-game marathon in the first round of the $1.6m World Cup on Thursday as the Cornishman, 47, was gradually worn down after seven consecutive draws by 19-year-old Chithambaram Aravindh, one of the many emerging chess talents from India. It was a bitter defeat for the longtime England No 1, who in his peak years had some of his best results in this prestigious knockout event and even reached the final in 2005 when it counted as the global body Fide’s official world chess championship. The 128-player biennial World Cup is one of the major competitions in chess. An extra incentive for its two finalists is that both will qualify among the eight candidates contending to become Magnus Carlsen’s next world title challenger. Carlsen himself took part in the 2017 World Chess Cup, when ...
15.09.2019 17:41 On Chess : Champions Showdown Provided Exciting And Unpredictable Games
While none of the matches truly went down to the wire, the players did an excellent job of entertaining the audience with exciting games from Sept. 3 through Sept. 5. Garry Kasparov may have been out of the match since Day 3, but he continued to fight admirably and picked up some nice wins for his efforts. Wesley So clinched his match with a draw in the first game, then proceeded to continue dominating his match against Veselin Topalov. Peter Svidler officially won his match by holding a long endgame against Leinier Dominguez. Levon Aronian couldn’t slow down the momentum of U.S. chess champion Hikaru Nakamura, and the American finished off the match two rounds before the end of the tournament. Let’s take a look at the final results and see what happened in each ...

06.09.2019 17:58 Chess : age catches up with Garry Kasparov in 5-1 loss to Fabiano Caruana
Garry Kasparov, world chess champion for 15 years and still the all-time No 1 in the eyes of many chess fans, lost crucial games by blunder and time forfeit as he was beaten in his latest cameo comeback, the Champions Showdown, at Saint Louis this week. The 56-year-old’s game proved too error-prone and too slow to handle random starting positions combined with one-hour rapid and 10-minute blitz against the current world No 2, Fabiano Caruana. Kasparov lost 5-1 in rapid, though the score flattered Caruana, who benefited from a blunder and a time forfeit in two winning positions for his opponent. Kasparov retired from full-time chess in 2005, planning a career in Russian politics and a challenge to Vladimir Putin which failed badly. His 2014 bid to unseat Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, the eccentric head of the global chess body Fide, was also easily ...
06.09.2019 17:58 On Chess: Ding Liren Of China Upsets World Champion Magnus Carlsen Of Norway In Sinquefield Cup
The 2019 Sinquefield Cup came to an exciting conclusion on Aug. 29, in a tiebreak match between Ding Liren and Magnus Carlsen. The day kicked off with two rapid games, both of which concluded in draws. In the first game, the world chess champion had to resort to passive defense to save the half-point with the white pieces, then went on to draw comfortably with the black pieces. From there, the match moved on to blitz, the fastest time control in chess. In the first thrilling game, Ding outplayed his opponent but was having difficulty putting in the finishing touch to get the full point. With seconds left on the clock, after just one second hesitation, Carlsen ran out of time, thus conceding the game. This result meant that he was in a must-win situation to keep the chess match going. The spectacular second blitz game is how the chess tournament will be ...

03.09.2019 18:20 Magnus Carlsen Was Defeated, But the Draw Remains Dominant in Chess
One by one, the pieces came off the chessboard, until only the two kings and a lone bishop remained. It was a draw, but Magnus Carlsen, the world chess champion, shook Ding Liren’s hand with a look of resignation. He had played eight rounds in the Sinquefield Cup, in St. Louis, one of the biggest chess tournaments of the year, and had come away with eight draws. He clearly wanted a decisive result in this one: his preparation was deep, and his opening was daring. Instead of simply developing his pieces, tucking his king safely away and only then building an attack, he had quickly and persistently tried to create imbalances wherever he could. He had neglected his kingside. He had sacrificed a pawn. And it had very nearly worked: for the better part of three hours, Carlsen had been the aggressor. His bishop was aimed at the king; his rooks were ...

Chess players can picture a tournament victory 1,000 times in their head. One can prepare, have a clear idea of what you want to accomplish, and show up to the event ready as you can possibly be.

Admit it: When you think of chess, an image immediately forms in your mind of two older men, possibly bearded, hunched over a board in a dimly-lit tournament hall.
