15.05.2021 18:26 Chess : American 12-year-old closes in on world record for youngest grandmaster
One of the most enduring chess records, Sergey Karjakin as the youngest grandmaster ever at 12 years and seven months, looks set to fall in the next few weeks. Abhimanyu Mishra, from New Jersey, US, is already the youngest ever international master, at 10, and has just achieved two of the three required GM norms for the higher title. There were GM level teenagers before 1950, but the world body Fide only issued its first list in that year. Then David Bronstein was the youngest at 26, followed by Tigran Petrosian at 23 in 1952, Boris Spassky at 18 in 1955, and Bobby Fischer at 15 in 1958. The last three all became world chess champions. Fischer held the record for over 30 years before the all-time No 1 woman, Judit Polgar, broke it in 1991, after which it was gradually lowered until Karjakin set his target in 2002. Since then, Karjakin’s chess ...
15.05.2021 18:26 Remember the Homeless Chess Champion? The Boy Is Now a Chess Master.
Once upon a time a 7-year-old refugee living in a homeless shelter sat down at a chessboard in school and learned how to play. His school then agreed to his mom’s plea to waive fees for him to join the chess club. The boy wasn’t any good at first. His initial chess rating was 105, barely above the lowest possible rating, 100. But the boy, Tanitoluwa Adewumi — better known as Tani — enjoyed chess as an escape from the chaos of the homeless shelter, and his skills progressed in stunning fashion. After little more than a year, at age 8, he won the New York State chess championship for his age group, beating well-coached children from rich private schools. I wrote a couple of columns about Tani at that time, and readers responded by donating more than $250,000 to a GoFundMe campaign for Tani’s family, along with a year of free housing. It was heartwarming to see chess ...

08.05.2021 18:32 The Making of Quantum Chess
Just when you thought regular video games couldn’t get any more complex, scientists and software devs had to prove us wrong and show technology will always advance. Although quantum game development is still in its early stages much like any other field of quantum computing, it’s still very possible for any interested party — developer or otherwise — to get involved. In fact, as a (recently graduated!) computer science student, I just finished a quantum computing 2D platform game as my senior project. While the details and a demo of this game are to be saved for another time, my point is that it doesn’t take years of graduate study and/or programming expertise to get started. This also applies for playing quantum games, like the world-renowned Quantum Chess. This game gained internet stardom in 2016 following its debut in the chess ...
07.05.2021 17:58 Magnus Carlsen ends tournament win drought at New In Chess Classic
Magnus Carlsen’s relief was evident last weekend after the world chess champion finally won his first tournament since his 30th birthday in November, the New In Chess Classic. The Norwegian had finished a disappointing sixth over the chessboard at Wijk aan Zee and had been eliminated in the knockout stages of four previous online chess tournaments on the Meltwater Champions Tour. Carlsen won the round by round stages of all five online chess events, so is already in pole position for the 10-player all-play-all tour final in September, which will be played over the chessboard in San Francisco. Self-critical as always, he commented that in the final against his old rival Hikaru Nakamura “neither of us played a particularly good match”. Nakamura’s principal career now is as a popular Twitch streamer with a million followers, but he maintains chess ...

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...

As many fans of the Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit will attest, this is not just a story about chess, but a story about women and power, or lack thereof, in a testosterone-driven theater of combat.

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
