    Round 9The Hou Yifan Express turned into a jet-propelled aircraft after today’s win over her main contender for the 1st place, the Russian Olga Girya. In a very entertaining and sharp game, the Chinese claimed the point and is now enjoying a two points lead of the second place. The amazing string of victories of the Russian star, Olga Girya, was disturbed today by the tournament leader, yet she is the only one who technically can still catch up with Hou Yifan, as she is alone with 5.5/9 on the second position.

  • Anand Wins Candidates With Room to Spare

    30 Mar 2014 | 12:18 pm
    In the end, there wasn't even any drama. Viswanathan Anand sealed his victory in the Candidates Tournament with a round to spare - and to be honest, had virtually assured himself of the crown a few rounds prior to that - cementing a rematch with Magnus Carlsen later this year. In the end, Anand took first place (with 8.5 points on three wins and no losses) by a full point over Sergey Karjakin, who scored a marathon win over Levon Aronian on the final day. With all of the other games ending in draws, that sent Aronian tumbling down the tight field into a tie for 6th with Peter Svidler at a…
  • Candidates Round 9: Anand's Tournament to Lose

    24 Mar 2014 | 9:37 am
    Heading into the 2014 Candidates Tournament, few observers gave Viswanathan Anand much of a chance to win. Sure, he wasn't discounted entirely, but most figured that it would be Levon Aronian or Vladimir Kramnik (or maybe Topalov, perhaps Karjakin...) who would ultimately emerge as the next challenger to Magnus Carlsen. But with just five rounds left to play, Anand now has an imposing lead on the field, meaning we could be headed for a rematch of last year's title clash....Read Full Post
  • Candidates Round 5: Anand Holds Lead, But Field Tightens

    18 Mar 2014 | 7:16 am
    In last year's Candidates Tournament, the leaders (Magnus Carlsen and Vladimir Kramnik) pulled away from the field relatively early, turning the tournament into an apparent two-man race. It seems unlikely that this will be the case in 2014, as after five rounds, the competition is about as close as it can be between four competitors. Following a draw with Dmitry Andreikin, Viswanathan Anand still stands alone in first place with a 3.5/5 score. But right behind him are three players with 3/5 scores. They include favorites Levon Aronian and Kramink, along with Peter Svidler, who scored a neat…

Certain rules have been adopted for pieces, boards, and clocks to keep them from distracting from the chess game. If a set is too detailed or the pieces are too similar then they may distract the player who has to spend time figuring out which pieces are which. At the same time a chessboard with graphics on it or squares that are too bright can become irritating after looking at the board for several hours.CHESS PIECES Chess pieces must be of the staunton style.

And who can't be glad about that?The concept has certainly rekindled my interest. I knock off from work about early evening and hit my desk at home just when games are entering the middle game. Like now, for example: round 6…

I have ignored opening theory (in fact I have purposefully been playing objectively unsound, reckless openings), tactical training, and slow games for the last few years. Other bits of life have become my highest priority. While I have found

  • Fireworks by the River

    admin
    19 Apr 2014 | 9:32 am
    After I finished my evening game in the second round of the Larry Evans Memorial, I went outside and was surprised to see some fireworks going off in the distance. Apparently this is a somewhat regular event in Reno. Anyway, it was a good metaphor for the two games I played yesterday, because they both involved some “fireworks.” In round one I had Black against Grandmaster Sergey Kudrin. I played my Bird Variation of the Ruy Lopez as usual, and he took a surprisingly long time — forty minutes on the first 8 moves. This made me overconfident, and my tenth move was a blunder…

The main job on Thursday is just to get here, which was no problem this year because the weather was beautiful. I picked up a passenger en route. Yes, that’s Jesse Kraai (photo taken by my wife), looking as if he’s dressed for a bike ride more than a chess tournament. Biking really seems to be his passion these days, and we spent a good long time talking about it on the trip up to Reno. Even though Jesse has been on this trip many times before, as we passed by one beautiful vista after…
  • Calculation and Conceptualization

    admin
    13 Apr 2014 | 10:19 am
    This week I recorded a ChessLecture that should come out in a month or so, called “How to Tell When the Moment is Right.” The question I was looking at in the lecture is, how do you tell when it’s time to calculate detailed variations, and how do you tell when you shouldn’t calculate variations and you should just go on general principles? Of course, I don’t want to give away the content of the lecture. But I will say this: I’m a calculator. On almost every move of every tournament game, I’m trying to calculate variations, even in positions where…

    At Mike Splane’s most recent chess party, Craig Mar showed us a really nice game he played years ago. Even though he doesn’t play tournament chess any more, he is a really good teacher and the games he shows us are usually as relevant as they were when he played them. This time he told us he was going to show us “How a Master Eats an Expert.” All of the moves that Black plays in this game are superficially reasonable, and yet he ends up in huge trouble and loses a miniature. How did this happen? Well, let’s see. Craig Mar – NN, Queen’s Gambit Declined…

I described it as an “anti-computer” opening, because very few human players have the gumption to play the move 5. … Bg4 inviting the queen sac. On the other hand, computers routinely do it because they don’t see White’s compensation. The Chess Life article described how I was able to defeat Fritz 7 and Fritz 9 using this weapon. However, computers have gotten better, and I…

    1. My friend once asked me if I spent most of my time outside my room, because, to her, my room looked like a prison. It is a straightforward box with cabinets to one side, a desk and bookshelf on the adjacent wall, and windows only on the upper part of the western wall, facing the cabinets. When inside, therefore, one can only ever see the sky, never the street. Outside, there is a single telephone pole beside the house across the street, and a telephone line is stark black against bright blue. The window is barred. I suppose it is similar to a prison. Now, I frequently lie in bed, sideways,…

    Dominique was just ten when some neighborhood gang members befriended him. “I was kind of a mascot,” as he puts it. But gang mascots eventually become gang members, and he was headed for trouble. One day, Dominique discovered an online chess game. He got the hang of it and became good—really good.  He didn’t like to lose, and pretty soon he had taught himself a variety of creative chess moves. Before too long,  Dominique was “busy” when gang members called. Busy with chess. Busy with starting a chess club in his school. Then busy as chess club president. Then he added wrestling…

    White to play and win       D Macfarlane v F Koronstenski 1979   Solution   Reitstein says that black offered a draw in this position, and white accepted. But 1 Bb6! isn't too hard to find, and black's pawns drop off. Making it (the acceptance of the draw) worse, 1 Ba7 wins similarly. The idea of both moves is to move the b8-h2 diagonal, biffing the e5 pawn.   Posted with Blogsy

It's a narrow focus, and it will be an intensive investigation.Not that we'll completely neglect the origins of the Streatham half. New evidence about this has only recently emerged,…

    This is the second game I have presented of GM Baddur Jobava’s and it is another attacking masterpiece. It is such an amazing game, it made its way into the March 2, 2014 issue of the New York Times as well as a number of websites. GM Jobava’s style is being compared to that of GM David Bronstein, whom this event is named after. His attacking style is eclectic and reminiscent of that of GM Bronstein and perhaps that of the Dane GM Bent Larsen as well. Enjoy the game.
