No less than five players are sharing the lead at the Tata Steel Chess Tournament after seven rounds. On Saturday Anish Giri, Ding Liren, Ian Nepomniachtchi and Magnus Carlsen were joined by Vishy Anand, who beat Vladimir Kramnik in what wasn't a great game. The tournament organizers had declared Saturday the 19th "Ladies Day" with a focus on the women behind the scenes, and with two female commentators: IMs Anna Rudolf and Sopiko Guramishvili. With this, and giving extra...

In a most entertaining sixth round it was again "double Dutch" at the Tata Steel Chess Tournament with wins for both Anish Giri and Jorden van Foreest. Giri joined Ding Liren and Ian Nepomniachtchi in the lead and so did Magnus Carlsen, who won his second game in a row. Whereas one journalist complained about the poor level in some of the games, most of his colleagues and other chess fans truly enjoyed the sixth round in Wijk aan Zee, held after the first rest day. On that rest...

Two months ago @simaginfan published a wonderful article about Ian Wells. When I started to read, I had a sense of déjà vu. A young British player who beats Grandmaster Alexander Kotov in a tournament and tragically dies a few months later? I heard this story... but I was sure that it happened in a much earlier time and with a different person! I quickly realized that there was no contradiction. As improbable as it may sound, Kotov was indeed linked to two different British youngsters...

Saric Still Perfect In PRO Chess Week Two

Saric Still Perfect In PRO Chess Week Two

After two weeks, only one player, GM Ivan Saric, has a perfect 8/8 score in the PRO Chess League. His dominant performance (as well as GM Eric Hansen's) have made the Montreal Chessbrahs look like one of the teams to beat early in the PRO Chess League season. Also greatly impressing are the Saint Louis Arch Bishops and the relatively unheralded Barcelona Raptors who scored a double-digit victory once again. Cast your vote in the game and MVP of the week polls! These four players scored 4/4...

The Secrets Of Prearranged Draws In Chess

The Secrets Of Prearranged Draws In Chess

GM Gserper
|

Prearranged draws are the reality of chess. You might hate it, you might fight it, but if two players want to make a draw, they will find the way to do it. Sometimes such players just agree to a draw before the game and when the game starts they try to trade pieces as quickly as possible to reach the desired result. There are designated opening variations that help you to achieve the goal quickly and efficiently. Like this one: You can find about 1,500 games like this in the database. Don't get...
