World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen is back for the 16-player Aimchess US Rapid, the 9th and last event on the $1.6 million Meltwater Champions Chess Tour before the Final. It runs from August 28 to September 5 on chess24. The 3-day preliminary stage sees the players face each other once before the bottom 8 are eliminated while the top 8 advance to a knockout consisting of 2-day matches.

The time control is 15 minutes for all moves, with a 10-second increment per move from move 1. The knockout match-ups consist of 4-game matches on the first two days. If the match score is 1:1, two 5+3 games are then played followed, if needed, by Armageddon, where White has 5 minutes to Black’s 4 but a draw counts as a win for Black. Official website:

  1. Pause the vedio may have another variation too:
    If white plays Qc5 then black capture the queen
    And nf to e7 is mate !!!!!!!!!
    I found this

  2. 7:28 why is giving up the queen losing the game? black would have two rooks two knights and a bishop against a queen and a bishop. I thought that queen = 2 rooks approximately?

  3. Forgive me if I’m horribly mistaken (almost certainly) but after pawn g7 to g5 wouldn’t h6 capturing en passant and delivering check win the black queen?

  4. Another “crazy crazy game” “Alireza couldn’t calculate all this”…”i hope you all managed to solve this position”. 😁

  5. Thank You very much Antonio – for doing what you doing best – witch is improving my time with your grate content. It is very nice to see Medo in grate shape 😉
    Kind regards to You and your family

  6. "Congratulations, you are the greatest player that ever lived." LOL! Yes, a complicated sequence, even for a 2700+ Grandmaster in a rapid game.

  7. I'm a novice so I don't know all the rules or maybe it's just tactically bad but: at 10:10 Why is Firouzja unable to perform an en passant?

  8. Agadmator also need brain to increase his vocabulary.
    Agadmator: pause the video, i will give you a couple of seconds
    Alireza: gives up after some minutes passed

  9. shit I've been sober for a week and I just all of a sudden lost my ability to calculate moves super fast like I used to when I was high af

  10. 12:06 Amazing that after all of the strange trades, exchanges and refused exchanges… they get to this point with exactly the same material.

  11. Anyone else think that the long format is the only version of chess that really counts? A good game is still a good game, but you're not 'World Champion' unless you're the Classical world champion (I state with humility).

  12. I am so proud of myself for doing the pause the video moment without pausing. I also calcuated 3 variations (2 he mentioned, and a hypthetical that he didn't mention) however l didn't see the final one he showed. But l was confident since all 3 permutations l walked through were winning. Either by mate or winning the queen

  13. In the Pause the Video segment, is there any point in that string of moves where Queen can check on c5? It's not a threatened square, and then it can gobble up the e pawn if not reacted to

  14. @agadmator, in the sequence outlined post the knight sac, @7:31 wouldn't taking the f7 pawn with the black queen and subsequently trading the queen for the rook be better for black? 2 rooks and 2 knights and a bishop vs a queen and bishop?

  15. And now that we have reached the end of the Morphy Saga. . What next? . . What a wonderful journey Antonio brought us on. . Thank you so much. . . But, no more 'Good stuff' to look forward to? . . So sad! . . I am sure we would all like to have the real Morphy in our own time, but that being impossible, I'm sure Antonio will make the games of mere mortals sound almost as interesting and exciting. . . (Or, as he is sometimes referred to, "Caïssa")

  16. When you watch 50 moves in the game and then realise it's not the main line of the game and he's just showing the possibilities.

  17. Alireza attacked so SO resigned.. 💥💥💥man he was not moving his pieces😅 just killing opponent hopes of winning 👏👏by placing perfect squares..

  18. After pawn F7 what’s wrong with Queen takes pawn, rook takes queen, king takes rook

    Black is way up in material isn’t he? Two rooks and three minor pieces

  19. Hey Agad, so on a few videos you mentioned making your sagas shorter. But honestly, I love the stories behind the sagas and the players. I remember you saying you enjoy them which is why you do what you do. Maybe do a YouTube poll on the size of the Sagas? Who knows if your fans also like the long sagas 👍

  20. 7:31 after Queen sacriface on f7 for the rook, isn't black winning there ? 2 rooks 2 knights and a bishop against a queen and bishop…
