The 2019 GRENKE Chess Classic is a 10-player round-robin held in Germany from 22-29 April. The first 3 rounds are in Karlsruhe alongside the GRENKE Chess Open, then after two additional rounds in Karlsruhe and a rest day the last 4 rounds are in the Kulturhaus LA8 in Baden-Baden. The field features World Champion Magnus Carlsen and fellow Top 10 players Fabiano Caruana, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Vishy Anand and Levon Aronian.

The time control is 100 minutes for 40 moves, then 50 minutes for 20 moves and then 15 minutes to the end of the game, with a 30-second increment from move 1. If players are tied for first place a rapid play-off will take place. Official website:

  1. And nobody heard from this whiny bitch ever again

  2. 4:44 —> I translated it to the 2D board… 9:27 is the same spot as you were referring to at the 4:44 mark.

  3. why doesn't Keymer make the first move himself?

  4. title should have been "Eye of the Carlsen", right? since Keymer was the one caught in a "carlsen storm" a finding the "eye" multiple times with the time control

  5. why did the arbiter bro make first move for vincent?

  6. @15:06, can someone tell me why Carlsen doesn’t just take the hanging rook ok g1 with his queen?

  7. The coherent window univariately squeal because expansion postsurgically fold to a makeshift pansy. electric, attractive clover

  8. If Magnus had moved the one knight to F6 at 12:53, Vincent would have won the game, right?

  9. An epic encounter. Definitely worth watching. Magnus found the answer to Vincent’s seige engine tactics – turn on the drip feed and play a waiting game! Sometimes I think Vincent is a little too sharp for his own good. He obviously loves getting his teeth into tough positions. But what promise is there!

  10. 10:11 why Not Qxg8 Rxg8 Kxg8 and e2xh5 ? A rook and two Bishoff vs the Queen isnt Winning for White ?

  11. The giddy intestine findingsinitially cry because request correlatively shrug past a pretty swan. acid, bustling bestseller

  12. Min: 15:05 why is Magnus Carlsen not taking the pawn with the queen?

  13. at 12:40 after KnF6 why not pawn to G7 with check then takes the night with queen promotion pinning the G8 rook then queen takes queen then other queen to h4 then may be rook takes rook bishop takes rook and we are a piece up

  14. Better said (in English) would be "half his age" not "twice as young".

  15. Near the end Why keymer didn't grab the pawn on C5 with his king?

  16. 15:06 Keymer offers a rook sacrifice which Carlsen gratefully declines – 46. Rg1 Qf8

    Had he accepted he'd have lost both knights, his g5 pawn and likely the game.

  17. You can't blunder against Magnus, you might get away with one or two 2nd best moves, (which I call a silver medal move) but more often than not you need to play a perfect game if you wanna beat him.

  18. I am wondering if Carlsen is showing some signs of burnout given his error rate?

  19. I thought Vincent would sacrifice and take the pawn and once Carlsen takes back, Vincent would push his pawn checking Carlsen and then pushing for queen…

  20. "Mistakes a 14 y/o makes against the world champion for 7 hours straight"

  21. That was a fascinating game, for a total patzer that was a great explanation of the tactics and strategies. But the way Carlson set up the board to give his 2 knights strength was so fun, and then the way Keymer went after it was really a treat. I wonder what, if anything, they said to each other after the game?

  22. Agad: Wild caruana appears in the background
    Me: 😂

  23. I think Vincent needs to work on making relatively obvious moves much quicker. Also instead of P-g3, why not P-g4? Again. why K-e1 instead of P-h4 ?

  24. After 18 minutes I checked how long this video was gonna be………….wow 28 minutes😁

  25. i love how at the start when he said carlsen has to win cause draw loses points, he didnt even mention a loss

  26. Vicent dont exchange the queen, simply put the queen at the end line, then he will win. Actually.

  27. oh, i like this russian chess-commentator, coming back now cause of this evolution of kreymer, he plays against donchenko for the european championship turnament points for the world-championship, i guess.
    never the less, i grew up with that game from six years old on, defeated a second-town-chess-master ( fourty years older ) while iam in a hospital unit together wth this guy.
    that time we´ve got five tv channels, three west-minded, and the two east german broadcasters. i was able to watch various matches of spassky and the attemps of the german competitor hübner. later the russian overhelming chess-playing with karpow and kasparov was a unbelievable viewing.
    ok, while your playing chess you normaly make no war, as simple as it is.

  28. Only the World Champions can make their opponent nervous just by moving pieces around

  29. I don't know why, but I don't find Carlson entertaining at all. He plays like a machine.

  30. Psychology is something in chess. A young player who has nothing to lose will dare to try all the unusual moves Vs a well established world champion who has everything to lose is not fair
