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. I wanna play a game with u sir lichess m not fide rated but after watching Mikhail tals, morphology , no reverse gear Rashid nez , even Anand , boby , never play for draw .. 🙏I hv to play , n also tell me how to get fide rating?

  2. When magnus captured the pawn with his bishop, which was a check, why couldn't white have captured the bishop with the queen?

    Edit: I see now, the queen would capture the rook with check. Then take the queen.

  3. Magnus must just see more than everyone else. The endgame seems to always subtly draw to the inevitable conclusion. I bet Magnus only loses when he has something else on his mind, besides chess. Otherwise he's unstoppable. Just brilliant.

  4. I can't believe that people with Aronian's rating are making basic chess mistakes. Why on earth did he trade his bishop for a knight in the beginning? Is this a setup?

  5. I saw the first move after "Pause the video" but I was thinking the follow up for white would be B g2 with the threat of a trade of B for R.

    Any thoughts?

  6. Very classy to not say who the opponent is… I can't believe the 11 year old came out of nowhere to make it the finals in her first grandmaster event! Unprecedented!

  7. Magnus is on a revenge spree. First on Duda for the FIDE world cup and now Levon for the Goldmoney Asian Rapid

  8. Two origins on what title alludes to: 1) it's also the title of a Depression-era movie, a film that highlighted a dance contest where the last couple dancing wins a huge cash prize, and 2) it refers to a nickname for heroin, H for horse, and "shooting" it is injecting it.

  9. In 1-2 years we will hear: "and from the move 86 we have a completely new game" :)). Chess already becomes quite exhausted and mostly just memorised and repeated …

  10. The scary thing is that you get the feeling Magnus can still take his game to yet another level as we approach the World Championship in November. Which, by the way, the bookies currently have Magnus at 1 to 6 odds on. That's up from 1 to 4 about six weeks ago.

  11. I think Aronian threw in the towel too early. In the position at 7:54, with no queens on the board, I think Aronian could at least fight for a draw
