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:

  • Agad in 2023: "And already, as of move 25, we have a completely new game."

  • The London falls by a direct attack of the e-pawn.

  • The neighbors are building a FKK club next door. Agad is going to get some nice activity soon.

  • This confused the shit out of me, I thought my neighbors are nailing something. It's 6am here while I type this.

  • I love your channel! 😍 I appreciate how you explain the games in a neutral way; I can never tell who you're rooting for.

  • Let's check what people says about small magnus & how 9 year old magnus plays game with Garry Kasprove.

  • I'm waiting for that one game where we'll hear "And already as a move 105 we have a completely new game

    • ...a completely new game! If you forget the completely, your imitation is not completely complete :-)

  • 02:50 what was that ominous knocking sound? Really creepy!!!

  • The title should have been London Calling...

  • I am sure Medo has learned enough swimming, as he practiced on the couch between his naps, to prepare him for the sea. Hope Antonio would capture capture and capture Medo's swimming efforts in his camera for us. As certainly with this move Medo has a completely new game.

  • I really really don't understand what the idea was behind Bg5 at 1:35 instead of taking the pawn, and the engine seems to agree taking is quite superior.

  • Dings connection never goes out when he’s winning.

  • So lazy dog off to sea after he practiced swimming on the sofa for ages? There is no game with this move in our database. So from this move onwards Medo and Antonio has a completely new game.

  • 7:00 found the feel free to pause thé vidéo !!! Finaly

  • 1:39 But what if ding pushed the e5 pion to e4 ???

  • Antonio! Lol you had me turning down my volume to see I'd that banging was on my end hahahah

  • Antonio! Lol you had me turning down my volume to see I'd that banging was on my end hahahah

  • how anoying the coment writen

  • The problem with Qf2 is Bc4, not what you say please. Thank you.

  • If Magnus wins this I will never watch another Magnus game - I just NEVER see him lose ;)

  • Draw? What??? Black just needed to push the pawn to get another queen.

  • Crushing your opponent min is tight

  • اخي سطرت دماغي خربربك

  • #FTA

  • “So yeah”

  • Ok. We can all agree that these videos are getting better and better titles xD

  • How many of you think he says "madness" and not "Magnus"

  • 7:12 why not black can play Rxe6 after Rd1? If Qxe6(by black ) then Qxd1 If Rxe1(by black) then Rxb6 Plz explain

  • Why not Nxe5 @1:33

  • Why knight does not capture e5 pawn?1:33

  • Armageddon is really a game-changer

  • It's not the problem of London system Magnus didn't play well that's it

  • wow, these guys are like, pretty good

  • Best video title agadmator has ever used

  • I don't know what a min is, but I hope it doesn't hurt too much when you crush someone's min.

  • Please make the square highlight colour bright red again this light one triggers me some how 😂

  • OMINIMAX GLOBAL HACKING SERVICE, is the only genuine ATM cloned hacking professional vendor which i have tested & confirmed LEGITIMATE!! I came across this ATM vendor online. We emailed back & forth about how the ATM card works & how it's been created, i was skeptical because it seems too good to be true but with the lawsuit on my neck i decided to give it a try. I was told by the admin the procedures on how to go about the card, which i adhere to the terms. After providing all their request, i got a tracking to my parcel & when i did i discovered it was the blank ATM card and 48hours later the card was delivered to me without any error or complications. I have been able to cash out $6000 within the past 3 working days. For more info, contact email: Tel/Whatsapp: + (234) 904-00-54517

  • Why do I feel that Magnus loses on purpose in some games? :P

  • Go Ding

  • who is your favourite hikaru: like nakamura: comment

  • I love it when I crush my opponent's min

  • Agadmators is the only SEnewssr where I don't get sceptical when the video is 10:01 long

  • It did happen. Magnus one blitz game because of that. And one happened in rapid but both players then restarted the game.

  • That sound in the background... someone is repeated flushing the toilet.

  • Can someone please explain how the #3 chess player in the world can be having internet problems??

  • i didnt realise the knocking was coming from agad's neighbour at first since my neighbour was doing renovation as well

  • What happened in the first blitz game? Did Magnus really ran out of time in a drawn position?

  • Ding has alot of effective weapons against d4.

  • antonio plz dont upload such low quality videos...your neighbours are litteraly louder than you, i cannot focus or understand you at all..there was no reason to upload something like this

  • 8:07 missed the golden opportunity to say queen to ivanchuk

  • The Bobby Fisher quote has minimally confused me... or is it maximally?

  • 5:07 Qf4 I would call that a webbing move

  • i heard the knocking, but only after you mentioned it, lol

  • Thanks for another great video Agad

  • Hey Agad, I just wanted to tell you that your work has surpassed French frontier, one of your video is mentionned in an article from : "The Applause" Here is the link if you want to check it out yourself (it's in French ofc) : Aside from that, thank you for your amazing work, you gave me back the taste for chess that i lost for a few years... Cheers from France !

  • Crush the min? What does that mean?

  • Forced repetition and stalemate need to be removed from the game.

    • @David Anderson You are having a hard time following my argument. Please re-read it. You were completely lost on the term "Pussy move.....its in reference to", as I explained. I am not challenging you chess knowledge or skills, I will graciously accept that they are far superior to mine.

    • @Goose Completely lost?? I've playing chess for 60 years. I know perfectly well what the various draw conditions are.

    • @David Anderson .... and yes, im always in the minority... and thank god for that.

    • @David Anderson Ya, I know, worried about censorship, but I guess that word slides. I'm guessing you haven't been around men. "Pussy move", is something the weak do, instead of being a man and making the tough choice. Since you seemed completely lost in your response, its in reference to all the times players force a 3 fold repetition when they are losing instead of manning up and taking the lose. Nothing wrong with a little honour/honor (I am sensitive to both spellings) in the game.

    • @Goose I think it's spelled "pussy". Are you applying abusive sexism to justify your recommendation? You'll need to do better than that to convince me. Also, I notice your remarks aren't getting any likes or any other replies, so I guess you're in a minority of one here.

  • 5:55 so for those of you who were able to do it congratulations on not hearing the knocking and for those of you who want to enjoy the show I don't have neighbors

  • For those who were able to do it... Congratulations, on spotting the knocking neighbors.

  • Day: is good Agadmator: HELLO EVERYONE! Day: is even better

  • I'm sad Magnus lost :'(

  • Am from UK I give thanks to a great doctor who help me out of my illness I was very sick I thank God who use this man to help, it started when i travel to Florida for visit there I met a lady not knowing to me that she HIV positive I really like the lady because she was beautiful I always see her every moment I close my eye I went to tell her how I feel for her but I don’t know if she know that she HIV I went to bed with her I contacted the virus too when I get home for month my doctor come to check on me and he discover that I have HIV he was shock and tell me I was so confused and so surprised to hear that I was taking HIV drug to cure it for good a 2year I decided to look for cure them I meet this post on internet I contacted him for help… well Dr.Omobhude proving to be a great man and he heal me..

  • The name of the video combined with thumbnail is just top.

  • Thank you Agadmator, that wasn't so hard was it? 😏 All hail Ding 👏🏾😀 Good game by both, I really want Magnus vs Ding in the next world chess championship. We haven't seen the best of Ding yet, just be patient 👌🏾😏

  • Funny, i heard the knocking and answered the door twice before i realized it was on the video...😄

  • What does this means "carlsen won blitz 2 on demand"??? I didn't get that anyone can help plz?

    • If he didn’t win he would have lost the set, so it was a must win situation, or “on demand”

  • Antonio, are you missing something? I think you miss the D

  • At 5:54, just Qxf2+, forces Qxf2, and black can continue R2xf2, Kxf2, then can pick up the b2 pawn with Rd2+, which seems to be better for black than what Ding went for considering the queens and a pair of rooks are off the board with black's remaining rook is in a much more active position on b2 than with the queens still on the board and the black rook back on d8.

  • Neighbors accidentally bring down a wall to agadmators living room Agadmator: now what’s the idea here?

    • Busting the center open with a nasty discovery.

    • @Mandar Agadmator: this is completely winning for me.

    • agadmator: knocks neighbour's building down *sorry about that*

    • I guess they wanted to make an easier route for _The Mailman_

    • Fractures, fractures, fractures, fractures...

  • Agadmator.. You forgot the D.. In minD... In the quote..

  • Missing a 'd' and a '.' there.

  • London has fallen!

  • After move 13(Rd8), why not white go for Ne4, attacking the Queen.. If RxQ, then NxQ+, and then you take black rook in the next that right?

  • Congratulations ! if you are able to hear knocking. You are excellent player of hearing things!!!!

  • if it's your belive to wear a turban or no that is up to you it's your freedom of religion if want to or not if you don't want to wear a mask that's your freedom for your belive as well. same if you want to read the bible or not in public. Freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition. 84 I wonder, tonight, if Christ would come on the scene, or over the nation today, in drawing this nation to judgment, if that same question wouldn’t been asked. Why is it, is it? Why is it we are doing these things? Why are we fussing in the government, whether we should read the Bible in public, and, why, if we are reading all this nonsense? Did not our forefathers set this constitution in order? Did not this nation be born upon the principles of the Bible? Aren’t we here for freedom of religion, to act in God the way we feel fit to act, the way that we are convinced is Truth? 85 But, you see, we have done something like they did then. We are just letting everything, politics, swallow us up, in the stead of respecting our Faith in our God, and man who has stood for Truth. And we are letting our politics run over that, and voting in such stuff that’s polluting this nation, and while we are coming to a judgment. God will rise on the scene, someday, with a mighty prophet, speak in this generation and-and tell people, and they’ll see that it’s God speaking, but they won’t repent. It’ll be just like it was then. 86 He said, “Is there no God in Israel? Is it because there is no God?” Same as Jeremiah said, “Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there?” Then, they could not answer that. Course, there was. Well, He said, “Then, why, why did you do it? Why is the daughter of my people not healed?” 87 Now we wonder that, tonight. Why? Is there no Bible? Is there no God? Is there no difference? If God is going to bring the people to Judgment, He has got to have something to judge them by. There has got to be some standard. 63-0626 - Why? Rev. William Marrion Branham The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects a number of rights and freedoms, including freedom of expression and the right to equality. It forms part of our Constitution - the highest law in all of Canada - and is one of our country's greatest accomplishments Charter. However, the Constitution was determined by the Supreme Court of Canada to be legally binding without any of the provinces’ approval. Therefore, all Quebec laws must respect the Canadian Charter, as well as the Quebec Charter, to be considered constitutional. (See also Constitution Reference.) The principal rights and freedoms covered by the Charter include: freedom of expression; the right to a democratic government; the right to live and seek work anywhere in Canada; the legal rights of people accused of crimes; the rights of Indigenous peoples; the right to equality including gender equality; the right to use Canada’s official languages; and the right of French or English minorities to an education in their language. Section 1 of the Charter gives governments the power to limit rights and freedoms, as long as those limits can be “demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society.” There have been numerous cases of the courts upholding such limits. For example, in the 1992 Butler case, the Supreme Court of Canada said a law dealing with pornography was a reasonable restriction on the right of free expression, because it protected society from harm in other ways. Considered by many to be the most important rights established by the United States Constitution, the First Amendment rights cover some of the most fundamental freedoms Americans enjoy. They include free speech, press, religion, petition, and assembly. Freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition.

  • Today practice against sf3 with london and won all game easy. Its really complicated method and if play, need to learn well the strongest moves.

  • I been watching these videos a long time. And Id like to suggest adding the players time. Its probably too much work to update their clock after every move, but at least the starting time and maybe increment, since it varies. Just my opinion, feel free to take a sip of water and ignore what I said, :)

  • Rook to d7... DING DOUBLES UP

  • Is someone practicing for a drum circle upstairs around the 4:00 mark?

  • “I hear you knocking, but you cant come in ...”

  • Toni, let your chess goblin out of the dungeon, sir D':

  • Who is London and what does he have???

  • 5:45 I don't know if You guys hear some knocking but if You're able to do it congratulations

  • This was a great game! I cant wait to show this to my friends at the library and bar!

  • Hi Agad..maybe you could use the words Game Set Match for this the end of this Video you said... Ding won the Match. I thought oh, so he has won the semifinal and reaches the final to face Naka or Dubov.. But then i noticed that Ding has won this Game and therefore the 1st Set. And to win the entire Match its best of 5 sets

  • Armageddon is boring and unfair

  • What is mean by agadmator?

  • Does anyone else just get extremely pissed off that Magnus loses? Like irrationally so. I just feel like at any given time he's the absolute best player with crazy games that look easy like he just walks through people and then he loses a game like this to some BS 3 fold draw rule and I feel like punching a hole in things. I hate when the best player doesn't win. I used to be a big underdog fan of things but every now and then you see greatness and I just feel like watching greatness is better than an underdog story and it pisses me off to see the greatness lose.

    • If you see greatness lose know there is greatness coming

  • I guess that's why I'm bad at chess, all these years and I've never crushed a single min

  • What's with the pounding noise?

  • Antonio Are you sure Armageddon has no increment? I think it has 3 seconds increment starting from move 60

  • agadmator is the type of guy to not make a 10 minute video for the ads, but by accident

  • Not a fan of Armageddon, where white has to win and black wins with a draw. What percentage of these games are won by white?

  • Welcome back, Ding. We missed you.

  • At 4:00, that's not a fortress, that's a fivetress

  • This is the problem of being a 14 yr old IM. I can't enjoy Agad's videos.

  • What's that irritating sound? Like thumping of feets on a floor. Spoiled my mood. God damn.

  • May I ask - wasn't it possible to go for a win for Ding? not enough advantage? maybe not exploitable since both Qs are still on the board? i'm an amateur, I'd like some insight :)

  • ...i think Bobby would be sufficient! ( ja and the hammering is irritating...i did check the door!
