FIDE Candidates’ Tournament 2016 Round 14

Added on 03.28.2016

GM Alex Yermolinsky video recap  GM Sergey Karjakin is the Candidate! Eventually, after all the speculations, Karjakin is the clear winner of the FIDE Candidates' 2016. He beat Caruana in a thrilling game, to qualify for the World Championship Match to be held in November in New York City. Kudos to the American  number 1, who tried hard to pose problems to the Russian. Anand and Svidler drew, leaving everything in the hands of the two possible winners. Of course, playing white with draw odds...Full Story

The three draws in Caruana-Svidler, Anand-Giri and Aronian-Karjakin have determined the following situation: Standings after Round 13 Pairings for Round 14 Karjakin and Caruana share the lead, with 7.5 points; Anand follows with 7 points. This means that Anand is out of the play, because even if he can catch...Full Story

Today we have a SPECIAL EDITION of the Game Of the Day video! &     GM Lars Bo Hansen       IM Christof Sielecki   Continuing with our "special day" story, today in Moscow was "Black Thursday": easy wins being given away at incredibly low prices. So many winning chances thrown away, in a thrilling and unnerving round.

Added on 02.13.2016

IM Greg Shahade started the fireworks over the net publishing - on his blog - a controversial statement titled "Slow Chess Should Die a Fast Death", in which he affirms that longer time control should just disappear form the chess scene.
