Eljanov Ahead of Carlsen, So At Tata Steel

Eljanov Ahead of Carlsen, So At Tata Steel

PeterDoggers

Also during the first rest day Pavel Eljanov will be the sole leader of the Tata Steel Chess Tournament. Today the Ukrainian grandmasters defeated Baskaran Adhiban. He finds Wesley So and Magnus Carlsen, the other winners today, at half a point behind him. Photo Alina l'Ami. Few would have predicted that Pavel Eljanov would be in sole first place after four rounds. 3.5/4 is a fine score, but it's not going to be easy for the Ukrainian to maintain the lead much longer. Eljanov has...

If you see two neighboring dots in the map above, chances are they're going head-to-head in week two of the PRO Chess League. It's rivalry week, and it begins tomorrow. The clashes may not be El Clásico yet, but give it time; the league is only seven days old (and we trust the players won't behave this badly toward each other). We will also see the first appearances of some of the league's world-class players. Grandmasters rated 2700+ like Li Chao (a perfect 4-0 in week one for...

Compilation Of Chess And Education Research Studies

FM MikeKlein

One of the most common questions educators have is, "Where can I find research studies devoted to the educational value of chess?" More studies are being conducted every year, but this article is a compilation of some of the past research done with chess, and a synopsis of the findings. Many thanks to Dr. Robert Ferguson for his help in compiling this information. Dr. Ferguson has conducted some chess research studies himself. Here's a table of many educational studies conducted from the 1970s...

"I don't know what is worse: to be on the losing side of a brilliancy, or to spoil one." Whereas commentator Yasser Seirawan hadn't decided yet, today Richard Rapport...

Do Not Misuse Your Chess Computer!

Do Not Misuse Your Chess Computer!

GM Gserper

My favorite episode from The Prince And The Pauper happens towards the end of the story: "Speak up, good lad, and fear nothing," said the king. "How used you the Great Seal of England?" Tom stammered a moment, in a pathetic confusion, then got it out:  "To crack nuts with!" I always thought that cracking nuts with the Great Seal of England was the biggest possible misuse of something. Not anymore! The way most people use their chess engines beats the hilarious episode from...
