16.04.2021 17:18 Magnus Carlsen's wait for challenger almost over as Candidates returns
The Covid-hit Candidates will resume in Ekaterinburg on Monday, a full year after the eight-player chess tournament to decide the official challenger for Magnus Carlsen’s global chess crown was unceremoniously and tantalisingly halted at halfway by the pandemic. Only six of the chess players are still in realistic contention, though. China’s world No 3 Ding Liren is effectively out of it – tied last with the Russian outsider Kirill Alekseenko on a measly 2.5/7 – with six players ahead of him and only seven rounds left. The Candidates has a €500,000 (£434,000) prize fund but that is dwarfed by the €2m purse, split 60-40, for the 14-game world title series in November at Expo Dubai. Carlsen, 30, who many consider the all time No 1 ahead of fellow chess legends Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov, will be aiming to cement his historic status and ...

09.04.2021 17:41 Chess : new event gives chance for young talent to face Magnus Carlsen
A new $100,000 (£73,800) online event for rising chess talents, the Julius Baer Challengers Tour, is under way this week. Ten under-18 male players and 10 under-25 women are competing in an all-play-all which ends on Sunday. The winner qualifies for the next Meltwater Champions Tour event starting on 24 April and with it an opportunity to take on the world chess champion, Magnus Carlsen, and the grandmaster elite. Two legends, the former world chess champion Vlad Kramnik and the all-time No 1 woman, Judit Polgar, double up as team captains and online commentators. After Thursday’s opening five rounds the three joint leaders on 4/5 were Nodirbek Abdusattorov 16, of Uzbekistan, Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa, 15, of India, and Christopher Yoo, 14, of the United States. Four years ago Abdusattorov and Praggnanandhaa were ...

26.03.2021 17:10 Chess : Magnus Carlsen's recent failures should be just a blip on his record
Magnus Carlsen has now gone six chess tournaments in a row without a first prize, his longest such sequence since he won the world chess crown in 2013. However, his current setback (maybe “humiliation” was a bit strong) looks just a blip in comparison with his several impressive winning sequence...

The fundamentals haven't changed much. But the rules of chess have evolved over the centuries—from timer usage to the ways that pieces are moved.

12.03.2021 17:08 On Chess : Chess And The World Of Esports
Since the beginning of time, the world’s greatest intellectuals have wrestled with the critical debate over whether or not chess should be considered a sport. In truth, the label itself doesn’t matter. What does matter is the funding, national support and widespread popularity that sports enjoy....

It took about 50 years for computers to eviscerate humans in the venerable game of chess. A standard smartphone can now play the kind of moves that make a chess grandmaster’s head spin.

30.01.2021 18:11 On Chess : Chess & Life – Strategy Across The Board

10.01.2021 18:55 The joys of being an absolute beginner – for life
