The chess24 Legends of Chess is the 4th stage of the $1 million Magnus Carlsen Chess Tour and features Magnus Carlsen and his predecessors as World Champion Vishy Anand and Vladimir Kramnik. It consists of two stages, a 10-player preliminary, where each player plays each other once, followed by a knockout among the top 4. Prelim ties are played as 4-game rapid matches, while knockout ties are the best of 3 such matches. The prize fund is $150,000, with $45,000 for first place, while the winner also qualifies for the $300,000 Grand Final.
The time control is 15 minutes for all moves with a 10-second increment from move 1. The winner of a preliminary tie decided in rapid games gets 3 points. If the score is 2:2 an Armageddon game is played, where White has 5 minutes to Black's 4 but a draw counts as a win for Black. A winner in Armageddon gets 2 match points, while the loser gets 1. The knockout format is the same except before Armageddon there are two 5+3 blitz games. No draw offers are allowed before move 40. Official website: chess24.com/tour

  • 7:23 I setup this position on chess.com if you go to the learn tab and then click on analysis under where it says advanced, paste this code in: 8/p6p/3R2pk/P1p2p2/5r2/2P4P/6PK/8 w - - 0 1

  • Awesome video, thanks

  • That pawn race at the end was nuts. "Lmao I have a queen too lol"

  • Everyone: watching the match intensely.. Me: *oh that's a cute dog you have right there*

  • Wow this is really stupid it’s for grown-ups i’m going back to watching the kids stuff

  • Already as move 17 we have a completely new game. I think that's a strange wording. 17 moves are many moves. It think it would suit "already as move 5-6"...

  • did you ever mention why Magnus chose white

  • Anybody else get the Death Note reference??

  • Nakamura casually winning an armageddon game with the black pieces against the world champion.

  • 6:22 Did I miss something? Magnus couldn't "bring the rook to b7 followed by captures" because he would lose the rook right away. Hikaru's queen was on f7 when Magnus moved the rook to 8th rank.

  • 2:09 When you are starting out learning chess, one of the principles you learn is to avoid having doubled pawns as much as possible. This is what you can do when you are fully familiar with the principles. You know, you are the world champion, then you can just have *tripled* pawns.

  • I was looking at the dog during the whole analysis : )))

  • Wow

  • So nobody gonna say something about the death note reference

  • Hey agadmator, just a suggestion. Can you go deeper into the first couple of moves, as sometimes these moves get skimmed over, even though they are just as crucial as the middle and endgame. Thanks.

  • Agadmator posted a quote by L like a true weeb that he is

  • Why magnus goes for white

  • I don’t understand why Magnus didn’t push his pawn sooner? It was covered and it seemed he made extra moves that were unnecessary. I’m confused

  • Move 17 is not ALREADY in this position, come one. There are like 100,000 different possibilities for a position

  • Choke artist Magnus strikes again 😂 Go Hikaru 😀

  • "He who strike first wins" -L White: e4 Black: Resign

  • You always say "already" when telling which move was the new one, as if games regularly go 47 moves without being new. I can see "already" being used when it's 5 moves in, or even 10, but 17?!?!

  • SPOILER ALERT 9:54 Who went back to look for this? Are there even geniuses who looked for it the first time?

  • If Armageddon is fair, players can always play Armageddon against each other. Why should the Armageddon only be the tie breaker game?

  • Instant like for the 'Death Note' reference with the quote

  • *"Lez Goo Naka"*

  • സുഹൃത്തുക്കളെ, ചെസ്സ് മനസ്സിലാക്കാനും പഠിക്കനുമായി ഒരു മാധ്യമം സജ്ജമാക്കുക എന്ന ഉദ്ദേശത്തോടെ തുടങ്ങുന്ന ഗ്രൂപ്പ് ആണ് ഇത് നിങ്ങള് ചെസ്സ് കളിക്കാൻ ആഗ്രഹിക്കുന്നു എങ്കിൽ, ചെസ്സിൽ കഴിവുള്ളവൻ/ കഴിവുള്ളവൾ ആകാൻ ആഗ്രഹിക്കുന്നു എങ്കിൽ..ഈ മാധ്യമം നിങ്ങളെ സഹായിക്കും...😇😇 senewss.info/my/RQUhTHgWUFI3H6b9PDREYA.html

  • That quote above ^^^ is it the L from Death Note?

  • That quote by L is the L from deathnote?

  • Attack. Attack. Attack. Oh, that Mr. Carlsen.

  • He chose ... poorly.

  • Dog lift 1:46

  • #suggestion game 1 set 6 between magnus and hikaru

  • About 70% of the comments here are on how the presenter talks, whether or not he says sorry, how his dog behaves, how his body posture goes etc. Only a few involve the game in progress!

  • I am gradually becoming an avid fan of Hikaru Nakamura. Such a brilliant player!

  • Sir your should stream all the remaining Carlsen vs Hikaru matches your channel as well! It'll be awesome to watch with your analysis!!

  • I miss the photo challenges in this channel. Anyone else?

  • "Already, as of move 17, we have a completely new game." I always wonder when agad says this: I know too little about chess - how many moves do professional games typically go before they reach a unique position?

  • Can we just appreciate that he put up a quote by L from death note for 10 secs Mad Respect Dude 😍😍

  • bring old setup

  • #suggestion Dear @agadmator, if you point closer to the camera when you point at the videos, it would seem like you're really pointing to the videos, a closer accuracy. :)

  • Woah... An L quote... Otaku spotted

  • It's to easy to find the move when you've watched the game😂

  • Audio low

  • *I take my cup of water and sip it* -Agad Light Mator- 😁😁

  • 5:30 Mysterious women walking behind Agadmator

  • damn, you quoted L from death note

  • And here I initially thought L stands for Loser.

  • hikaru only won because fall guys

  • Agadmator, have you seen 'Death Note' ?

  • "He who strikes first wins" - L

  • most people shivered while hearing who wins this match!!

  • I'm not used to hear "And in this position that Magnus Carlsen resigned the game" lol

  • Loved the Death note quote up there!

  • Nakas Wooden Shield training punishing El Magnito

  • Bad audio

  • #suggestion Magnus wins against Hikaru,with the Alekhine’s defense.

  • What a fucking game! Wow

  • This is probably the first time I've seen Agad stutter on donators' names😂😂😂

  • Hello agadmator # why not include time situation in your bord for each move I think this will help viewers to understand some move decision Great work good luck

  • When do the next games start and where can i watch them?

  • Magnus seldom loses too

  • "Already at move seventeen ... we have a new game ??"

  • ur camera is flickering. depending on location, u may either change to 50 hz or 60 hz

  • Just imagine a chess game between light and L

  • White start and lose!!

  • Me waiting for captures captures

  • i think he chose white because he wants to know how good he is. and that made the game even more exciting to watch.

  • Bro what’s going on with MC these days

  • 1point for hikaru ,1 point for Magnus and 1point for medo😅😅😅

  • @agadmator are u a fan of Deathnote

  • Light yagami - to win you must attack🎾

  • Finally we get a close up of the dog

  • #suggestion if you find time, please remake the bravest rook in chess video in 60 fps.

  • Nice game! 👍

  • A Death Note Quote....youre an amazimg man!

  • Go Hikaru!!

  • Choose what?

  • I do not owe anyone anything now thanks to, *p a i d t o b e h o m e .c o m*

  • A Death Note quote? I wish I could subscribe a second time just for that ;)

  • I really didn't understand what magnus was doing the entire game....He was worse for almost the whole game...

  • The speed demon takes the lead with 3-2 ONE MORE MATCH GUYS

  • Quote of the day from L

  • New dog? And lost weight?

  • I would like to know who is the L that quoted “he who strikes first wins”

  • This game was awsome, Magnus need some more of that grounding. What a crybaby when he looses, does not give interwiew after a lost game.

  • Wait is there actually a quote from L

  • Hello everyone

  • +1 for the Death Note reference!

  • He said 32 times Magnus .

  • It's funny he really clicks any piece alot of times in middle when he analyse and explains....I played the drinking game on that. If he clicks any piece alot of times ...we have to take a shot. Lol

  • Light is very angry right now..

  • I’m going to unsubscribe if the video quality doesn’t get fixed soon. Love you Agad but I just can’t do it bro with the video lines running

  • #suggestion Danyyil dvrinyyil vs Alexei shirov

  • Thank u. Hikaru was relentless. His pursuance was absolute. A good game.

  • Medo : Wakes up ; Yawns ; Sleeps Again ;

  • I don't earn yet, but when I start, I promise to contribute to this channel. 💝

  • Agadmator be like: Already as of move 17 we have a completely new game. What do you mean by already. Thats 11 moves longer than some of my games last.

  • @9:12, here we have a nice medo scratch

  • I just want Hikaru to win the match and then go on Joe Rogan, smoke a blunt, and talk about how awesome chess is.
