$150,000 chess24 Legends of Chess | Final Day 1 | Carlsen vs Nepomniachtchi

A thrilling day ends with Magnus Carlsen clinching the first set in the final! 
Nepo has a chance to come back tomorrow & force a decider on Wednesday. Grischuk: “The fight is lost but the war continues for Team Russia!”

Carlsen on playing 17…e5 not 17…Qa5! (which he spotted immediately afterwards) in Game 1: “I was just really, really appalled with my play… that upset me quite a bit”

A Legends of Chess online szuoervereny döntőjében a világbajnok Magnus Carlsen 4 – 2-re megnyerte az első mérkőzést a világbajnokjelölt orosz Jan Nepomnjacsij ellen.
A norvég világelső az első partiban sötéttel győzött, az orosz nagymester a harmadik játszmában kiegyenlített, 2-2 után a villámpartik döntöttek. Két izgalmas, fordulatokban gazdag összecsapásban Carlsen kettős győzelmet ért el. Kedden a második mérkőzésre kerül sor, két győzelem szükséges a tornagyőzelemhez, a győztes 45, a vesztes 30 ezer dollárt nyer a 150 ezer dolláros díjalapból.

“The most important thing in rapid chess is to get counterchances” Anatoly Karpov is live from the Central Chess Club in Moscow!

In Game 3 the players blitz out the 6.Rg1 line about 1000 times faster than in Game 1, while Magnus has done some homework and this time goes for the 8…Nxe4 pawn grab!


Alexander Grischuk makes his entrance this time with “one of the most beautiful opening traps that I have ever seen,” that could have happened in the game:

Magnus is far down on the clock in a tough position, but Nepo didn’t find the computer’s suggested winning 16.Rga4!! here!

Wow! Nepo strikes back with a direct mating attack! Grischuk: “Now we have a match!”

Nepo copied Carlsen for 13 moves until Magnus finally broke the symmetry here by exchanging queens – it seems we’re heading for a very quick draw… and two blitz games!

Grischuk on Carlsen: “I’m in general surprised he’s playing the Najdorf. I think he’s just making it more difficult for himself. He can play a good opening – the Berlin, the one and only!”

Azt szeretném kérdezi, hogy miért jár több kommentátori feladat Polgárnak, amikor vissza vonült. Maga Polgár nyilatkozta,hogy a sakkba nem lehet ki be járni

És hogy miért nem akadt még sakklegenda, akinek nem jutott mikrofon,

Egy olvasónk kérdezte

Kaszparov, Karpov, Portisch, minden sakklegenfa mert játszani, hiába viSSzavolultak.
Judit minek fél ?

Jár a 100 pont
Fischer is halhatatlan, az is mert visszavonulás után játszani

Polgár unfair volt ! Ha korrekt lett volna, akkor maga helyett mást ajánlott volna-Nem az, hogy egymás után csak  ő
Neki a Saját érdek előrébbre való volt sokszor.
