Norway Chess is a 6-player double round-robin featuring World Champion Magnus Carlsen and taking place in the Clarion Hotel Energy in Stavanger, Norway from 7-17 September. Each of the 10 rounds consists of a classical game where a win is worth 3 points and a loss 0. If the players draw they play an Armageddon game, where the winner earns 1.5 points and the loser 1 point. No draw offers are allowed before move 30.

The classical time control is 2 hours for all moves, with a 10-second increment per move only after move 40. For Armageddon White (the same player who had White in the classical game) has 10 minutes to Black’s 7, with a 1-second increment from move 41. Black wins if the game ends in a draw. A tie for 1st place will be decided by two 3+2 blitz games followed, if necessary, by a 5 vs. 4-minute Armageddon game. Official website:

  1. @11:25 Bruh, agad, it would still be winning for white. Just check with rook @E7, then move rook to H7 and capture the passed pawn on H2. Now you have 2 pawns versus 1, but black's pawn is on a dark square, and you'll be much faster with your king closer to it, and you'll be up 2 pawns.

  2. @6:23 Why didn't Firouzja capture the knight with the pawn, thereby removing the defender of the bishop and then capture the bishop with his rook? If black would recapture the pawn, then white would even capture the bishop with check from the light-squared bishop.

  3. Ive been watching agadmator for a long time and i still dont know whats the "sorry about that" about. I thought it was fixing the bottom right thing showing game format but not really. huh

  4. Dude time and time again Magnus shows why he is world number 1…he is just too classy and tactical at the end-game his plays!!
    Thanks for the upload @Agadmator

  5. Fantastic Video ❤️Bitcoin has followed this pattern for sometime now; It dips and gets everyone scared then after retesting an old resistance several times, This period is the perfect time to buy the dip and accumulate irrespective of the bulls being under pressure. I'd strongly advise any newbie/traders to buy the dip for traders who are still wondering to enter the market or old time traders who are Holders to seek help from not just any trader but an established trading expert with at least 89% trade accuracy. I underwent series of trading loses I'd best not talk about before I was introduced to trading analyst Mr Tuyen Albert .

  6. When magnus had the choice to take the Bishop or move the rook why didn’t he take the knight with his rook as an in between move? The Bishop would be protected if whites Bishop takes. Or he wins the Bishop and Knight for a rook if white takes rook with the pawn.

  7. at 3:30 why not rook takes knight, protecting the bishop and winning an extra peice. Also at 10:45 isn't pushing H2 sufficient, you can trade bishops a move later and there wont be time to stop the pawn.

  8. #suggestion Agad, please check out the Armageddon game between Nepomniachtchi and Firouzja, it's King's Gambit in the style of old masters (I'd normally even make an Anderssen joke here but I can't think of anything funny). It's a crazy, double-edged game, very entertaining too as opposed to all classical draws we've been getting recently.

  9. Not really commenting on this game specifically, but I think the rules should be changed so that both players get an extra half a point if the game ends in checkmate instead of a player resigning.

  10. Apart from the fantastic game…this video was awesome for two reasons..
    1. Antonio did say the beloved "sorry about that…"(Which he had almost stopped saying)
    2. He also so convincingly said pawn to a bishop…(Again…which he had almost stopped saying..may be the anesthesia effect.!)

  11. Personally for me this is one of the wildest games of the entire year – they were playing complex lines faster than Judit Polgar could explain them to us on chess24.
