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. It's funny
    India was known for Cricket (and field hky)
    Since Anand.. the slew of Indian CHESS stars keeps growing 🙂

  2. I really hope the John Cena quotes are to be intended as some kind of clever political commentary rather than actual motivational quotes. I would be a bit disappointed otherwise.

  3. Just a small note: Vidit’s name is written incorrectly. It should be “Vidit Santosh Gujrathi” as his first name is Vidit

  4. There can be a double "pause moments", one when Agad says "try to find the move" and another pause must be done when he shows the move, before he explains it, so we can try and understand it.

    I failed at both.

  5. You take Vidit's name wrong. His first name is Vidit, his father's name is Santosh and his family name is Gujrathi. Vidit is NOT his family name.

  6. The world's shortest poem:

    Had 'em.

    The world's second shortest poem:

    Did it.

  7. Would not be it so great if bishops can move straight horizontal or vertical and capture diagonally, only?

  8. Sorry for the random suggestion but, #suggestion Emanuel Lasker saga, such and underrated legend of the game and he deserves his own saga or at least more coverage

  9. I won't spoil the ending by naming it, but there's a movie ending where they say, "That's how it could have happened. But how about this?" and "But here's what really happened." So many of these videos remind me of that.

  10. 'Don't get all mushy on me Princess'.

    (I'm not calling you a Princess!!)

    Your Chess channel has been my go to daily for well over a Year now, I have gained 200 points on Lichess just by watching your videos.

    Evans Gambit, hell yeah!.

    Here is the mushy bit, you do a brilliant job and seem like a really decent fella one would want to have as a friend.

    Love your humour and 'catch phrases'.

    So thank you for the channel and the content you provide, especially over the last 2 Years it has been a Godsend.

    And I will finish with 'the Nez' , too difficult to spell, is without doubt a Grandmaster, you simply don't win brilliancy after brilliancy and create magic not to be.

  11. Nils will be haunted looking for bishop to b5 for the rest of his career. Someone needs to keep track of that stat . . . I bet he makes that move more now
