The 2022 Tata Steel Masters is a 14-player single round-robin taking place from 15-30 January in Wijk aan Zee, the Netherlands. World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen heads the field, which includes stars such as 2020 Champion Fabiano Caruana and Anish Giri.

The time control is 100 minutes for 40 moves followed by 50 minutes for 20 moves, then 15 minutes for the rest of the game, with a 30-second increment per move from move 1. If there is a tie for first place the top two after tiebreaks then play a 2-game blitz (5+3) playoff and, if still tied, an Armageddon game. The monetary prizes will be shared evenly.

  1. Good analysis. One question: when you discussed how Giri would have to defend with g6 in a line, I was wondering if …f5 would have done the same, or better. Otherwise, it was enjoyable.

  2. Hey Agadmador, can't Magnus just informally create his own event with Alireza Firouzja and use the Fide classical format and just call it the championship? I understand Fide licensing etc but it would mean the same thing, I mean as two men and the real chess community not being the governing body. Maybe the place setting formalities and pressure you couldnt recreate but outside if that it would be the same, just an agreement amongst men. I would sign a petition if you promote this idea, and maybe your community feels the same?

  3. People after winning in football or boxing etc- tearing t-shirts, running around shouting victory
    People after winning in chess- Winking at the camera

  4. I like how the knight was completely shut out by the bishop and also the other pieces if he tried to reroute, and all by just moving one square

  5. **Watch agadmator's videos
    Pauses the video and guesses the correct move
    Opens chess full of confidence
    Loses badly
    Gets back to watching videos**

  6. It is possible for human to achieve 3000? If yes could this person try to qualify for engine tournaments? Ive read that engines should be rated 3000 to play in some tournaments.

  7. Magnus cheated with David Howell against Danya naroditsky

    1 – in the lichess thing.

    2 – in relationships. Lol.

    Anyway Magnus also cheated in world blitz 2019 in distracting alireza.

    Also Magnus cheated nepo with the knight touch move thing and then said 'do better' as part of gaslighting the reporter.

    It's like world champion tigran V petrosian cheating against Bobby Fischer, world champion Garry Kasparov cheating against judit polgar and tigran L petrosian cheating against Wesley so.

    World champion Bobby Fischer and world champion wesley so do not cheat. Seems like the top 9LX players have more integrity than the top chess players.

  8. At the "feel free to pause" position, sure Qf5 is very strong but there is also an interesting idea of Bb4. If 1…c:b4 2. Nc6 Ra-c8 3. Ne7+ white regains the exchange with a better position, and if 1…Qd8 2.Q:a4 c:b4 3. N:f7 Qf6 4.Qd7 Rf8 5.Q:d5 the knight cannot be captured and white seems better.

  9. What a beauty! That's the kind of chess I hope to see more of in GM-games. I also think that Dubov is going to be the future of chess, just aggressively going off engine lines to force your opponent to think!
