The Berlin FIDE Grand Prix is the 16-player first of three legs of the 24-player 2022 FIDE Grand Prix that qualifies two players to the Candidates Tournament. Each player competes in two of the three tournaments, with the 16 players divided into four groups who play a double round-robin. The group winners advance to a knockout. Tiebreaks at any stage are played on the following day. Players can earn a maximum of 13 points for winning a leg.

Players receive 90 minutes for 40 moves, followed by 30 minutes to the end of the game, plus a 30-second increment starting from move one. In case of a tie a 15+10 two-game match is played. If still tied, a 3+2 two-game match follows and then, if needed, an Armageddon game, where White has 5 minutes to Black’s 4, but a draw counts as a win for Black. If more than two players are tied a round-robin tiebreak is played. Official website: worldchess.com

  1. Hikaru not being ranked by FIDE for the past two months and him not playing in a tournament in a calendar year and still be in this shape is very impessive.

  2. The opening/setup played by rapport and lauded by agad sucks. Tried it a few times and it’s awfully limiting. I mean look where it got rapport in this instance.

  3. Would be nice with some sort of sign on the screen that let's us know when you are side tracking into a hypothetical play, would be easier to keep track of the real game I think.

    Anyway, thanks for great content. I'm a lousy chess player and not even that big of a fan of chess and before you, never watched YouTube videos longer than 7-8 mins but soon I will have watched every single one of yours. Your amazing bro!

  4. A question+remark: After 20 … Qh6, why doesn't white play 21. Bxf5 instead of 21. Bg2 ? Point being that f5 pawn is undefended (and attacked twice)…

  5. 3 time yugoslavian champion and participant of candidate match 1965 passed away today GM Borislav Ivkov u should put some game on channel , suggestion thanks 🙂

  6. After Nd4,Qh6 why defensive move of Bg2 was played? Bf5 would have been a better attacking move. Please elaborate.

  7. Oh, so these are best of two with tiebreaks in case of 1-1? I thought it was best of 3 and was so confused why a draw would suffice for Hikaru.

  8. Hey guys, what's wrong if RR grabs f5 pawn at 4:30 ? Even after rf8 or Qf6 he can eliminate those awesome e4 knight. If any1 can shed some light on this would be great

  9. 4:28 if Bxf5 then Nxf2, Kxf2, Qxh2, Best is Kf1, Rf8, Qe2, Qxg3, Qg2 and then the brilliant Qg6 if Queens traded then you promote pawn to g6 and win the bishop at f5. After some trades Kg1, Rxf5, Nxf5, Qxf5 black is down an exchange and up 2 connected past pawns which is much better.

  10. Nice nutralising game by hikaru! I am exaited to know who will win the final is it will be hikaru or levon?
