World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen tops the field for the New in Chess Classic, the 5th event on the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour, which runs from April 24 to May 2 on chess24. The 3-day preliminary stage sees the 16 players play each other once before the bottom 8 are eliminated while the top 8 advance to a knockout consisting of 2-day matches. The prize fund is $100,000, with $30,000 for top place.
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.

    That was quite enjoyable, thank you! I had a little chuckle here: "...Hikaru can take advantage of this move, but it's up to you to help him, so of course as usual, feel free to pause the video and help Hikaru... " I hadn't heard that choice of words before, which was amusingly reminiscent of Dora the Explorer: "Can you help us find a way to stop Swiper? Please help us by saying, 'Swiper no swiping!' ... Thanks for helping us stop Swiper!" So, thanks for that chuckle, and for the great chess content!

    As usual Agad detours into never played never would have been played.Agad does this to his viewers all of the time. Agad purposefully moved the dark square bishop to a square that did not defend the queening square..?? why..? so that Agad could justify his never played never would have been played detour. This is disrespectful to the veiwers in that it insults their intelligence. Constantly postulating with unsound foundations to squirm a position into the recap. Why? Why not just show us the game?? I rarely watch this chess channel because of these rediculous detours. IF Agad took one second to think he could postulate wisely...but that would take work.

    the difference between Magnus and Hikaru is that Magnus can play more logically, he plays every move with certain logic, while Nikaru plays from memory, or sometimes unnecessarily. It seems the most players think they can not beat magnus, there is a lack of confidency in Maxim, Aaron, they are not able to play aggressively against Magnus. Only Giri, Ding, So, Nepo can have serious chance by playing their games, Giri is actually a better player I think. The others are one league below these guys.

    9:53 Dude... There are no 11-man tablebases. In 2012 the Lomonosov team generated the 7-man tablebases. But they are expensive and impractical for the average user. From May to August 2018 Bojun Guo generated the 7-piece tables using Ronald de Man (aka syzygy) generator. Storage requirements for the syzygy tablebases are as follows: - 3-5 pieces tablebases - 939.0 MiB - 6 pieces tablebases - 149.2 GiB - 7 piece tablebases - 16.7 TiB It is estimated that the size of the 8-man tablebases would be around 12 petabytes and would require 50 TB of RAM just for the hash table.
