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:

  • Just a quick followup. If black knight stops the queen check then the black bishop falls!

  • Love your videos! So informative. Please review my alternative to the evans gambit. On move 4, bishop takes pawn check. King takes bishop. Knight takes pawn check. Knight takes knight. Queen to H5 check and the black knight falls. White is down 1 point but black king is in trouble and the black kingside defense is destroyed. ANOTHER alternative is pawn to D4 on move 4. No matter how black moves, the sequence above is repeated. By moving pawn to D4, white bishop is uncovered and can join in the attack. I gladly take point loss for this position. It is very difficult for black to develop his pieces while white can castle to either side to continue the attack. I welcome comments. (Yes I still play the evans gambit for variety!).

  • Great game! Exciting. Thank you for using my quote. 🙂👍

  • Now whenever I do something risky in real life, I hear Antonio's voice in the back of my head "and now b4, the Evans Gambit is on the board."

  • Legend has it Mcdonald quit chess and started the restaurant after this loss.

  • Why is Evans wearing a turkish hat?

  • The battle of the epic beards right here.

  • Whoo hoo! I finally found one of Agadmator's "pause and see if you can find it" moves!

  • 3:35 this pawn is deffended so you do not need do this, it is better to deffend this with bishop.

  • Love this, is like the mini Evans gambit saga

  • The E.G. is so good, it was played for the first time twice!

  • #suggestion

  • xd

  • i always hear McDonald

  • Agad: So, Mr. Evans. Here we have this chess playing machine which has made an improvement on your opening all by itself. Evans: Hol up

  • What an evergreen checkmate

  • looks like levy is also enjoying the Evans Gambit today :D

  • get me a hat like evans has and you win my heart agadmator

  • Why u r not covering chess olympiad??? .....

  • Well... Being best chess commentator probably yields to be worst singer :)

  • Does antonio have tourettes syndrome? I hear him make that same cough very often. My friend used to have tics just like that

  • Hi Agadmator, could you please review this game from the chess Olympiad? I bet you will enjoy this too, there are so many variations you can think of. The game was a short (15 moves) but very entertaining one from the Indian prodigy.

  • Can u show some bobby fisher gameplay?

  • “And now there’s a problem” - agadmator 2020 #Quote

  • I don't know but I think that he played knight to d8 to maybe save the b7 pawn. Please correct me if I am wrong.

  • I dont owe anybody anything now because of, *p a i d t o b e h o m e .c o m*

  • Evans to Betsy! Our capable Captain really knows how to keelhaul his opponent. #suggestion How about the Evans saga (if there are enough interesting games to cover), or, alternatively, a special series on famous Evans Gambit games.

  • #quote All men can see these tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved. -Sun Tzu, The Art of War

  • I didn't find the disgusting engine line with mate in 3, but I found Evan's move with mate in 4, and I feel good about it..

  • It's the moves that count -Agadmator #quote

  • I was wondering what all the fuss was about. It's the original Evan's Gambit, ...or is it?

  • This seems more authentic despite the early castle

  • I have no more stress because of, *p a i d t o b e h o m e .c o m*

  • nice hair cut Agadmator!

  • "And only now Nh6. Here this is a move that really does nothing cause your f7 pawn is protected. You dont need to defend it again. So better would be something to just maybe play Bh5 to add protection to it [f7] this way." - Agadmator 2020

  • This is such an action and motion packed channel that having it in 60 fps is not just essential but absolutely crucial. I don't know how I tolerated 30 fps in those early years as watching any of those videos now is just totally impossible, completely unwatchable.

  • Great game 🙂👏🏾

  • When Agadmator Podcast part 3?

  • Okay, yeah, that video was weird but strangely funny. And now I feel like my vast knowledge has improved!

  • #quotation "We admire people to the extent that we cannot explain what they do" - B. F. Skinner You mentioned in one video that you were up for getting quotations....

  • Finally Evans :)

  • I feel Agad is posting videos some have been waiting for for years

  • That "weird stuff" link... having watched that, I think I'll be having nightmares for several days.

  • I can't belive they named him after a chess move

  • Please review and talk thru this game:-

  • I love oldschool games. They are my favorite

  • My friends at the bar and the library are not convinced that this is the "real" Evans' Gambit.

  • Do you realise that the image of the "border" of your cam was compressed as hell for a very long time? Everything else is in HD, but the border really stands out.

  • it would be cool if you do like two videos per day, and one of them is a game by chess engines. I really love when you show games played by engines, no joke! Also keep up the good work :)

    • @Kingston Wong he was 22, and couldn't stand that he was semi famous for playing something he considered a fun way to waste time and nothing more

    • @Miix Sorry about that!

    • I believe this was a quote on one of the videos already, but I might be wrong, I could have heard it at a bar or a library

    • Kingston Wong fair he was more a prodigy than somebody interested

    • @Tunneling Weasel I'm pretty sure he didn't really care much about chess as he basically dropped it when he was still around 25 something. He just happened to be very good at chess.

  • Agadmator is keeping up with the trend, sing along! ;)

  • Santa invented the Evan’s gambit and left Antonio a nice gift and we all unwrapping together nowadays!

  • Wonder what ratings these guys would b in today's rankings

  • What’s the big deal about the Evans gambit? Why do we care so much about it? Compared to other gambits

  • Thanks Boomer!
