The London Chess Classic is a 10-player round-robin taking place from December 1st to 11th at Google HQ in London, for Round 1, and then at the Olympia Conference Centre in Kensington. The event is the 5th and final leg of the Grand Chess Tour and features World Champion Magnus Carlsen, other tour regulars Viswanathan Anand, Levon Aronian, Fabiano Caruana, Hikaru Nakamura, Wesley So, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Ian Nepomniachtchi and Sergey Karjakin, as well as English wild card Mickey Adams.

The prize fund is $300,000 (about €280,000) with a first prize of $75,000, plus another $100,000 and $50,000 respectively for the top two in the overall 2017 Grand Chess Tour standings. Players receive 100 minutes for 40 moves then 60 minutes for the rest of the game, with a 30-second delay from move 1. In the event of a tie for first, a tiebreak match (10 mins + 5 seconds delay) will be played, beginning 30 minutes after the end of the last classical game. If still tied, up to 2 mini matches (5 min, 3-sec delay) will follow and finally an Armageddon game (5 min vs. 4 min). Official websites: | grandchesstour.org

  1. #agadmator…you are nearly failing in my exams. I watch your videos all day and have no time to study

  2. will you cover the last game fabi played cs nepo, that game was crazy too

  3. Fabiano had a minute on his clock when Adams resigned…Was in time pressure the whole game

  4. Hey, what would happen if instead of 69 Ra4 c2, 69 Ra4 Kd3??
    Is the white rook able to sacrifice itself and then the a pawn will promote? Or the King would be able to catch that pawn without loosing its passer?? Thanks for ur answer, really like your videos. Saludos desde Argentina!!

  5. Where is the dog ? Thats the main reason why I watch your videos 😀 Great video again.

  6. Those were some crazy tiebreaks games, you should make all four of them

  7. Learn your Rooks-and-Pawns endgames, folks.

  8. What would be the best opening if i would try to learn positional chess?

  9. 8:55 queen c8+ means the rook would have to go back because if Qd8 blocking the check then Re8+ loses the queen. But if Qc8+ Rd8 Re8+ exchanging the rooks, they both have a queen and 5 pawns, but white's pawn structurr is better so doesnt that mean a win for white? + White so far has a more active king

  10. 3:45 why not Qxe5 by black going to an endgame where white has doubled pawns?

  11. 6 hours!? Damn, that's some serious effort. Were these games 'clockless'?

  12. I can't recall ever seeing a player at this level having tripled pawns and still winning.

  13. 8:54 Qc8+ Qd8, Re8+ simply wins the queen and the game! I wonder how Fabi missed it lol. So easy.

  14. @agadmator I saw the score was 4-6 in Mickey's favour prior to this game (Saint Louis chess translation claimed that)

  15. Agadmator – Thank you for covering the games of the tournament. I wonder if would you try just one video without calling out the designation given to each square, please? I don't think many people put on blindfolds to practice ….

  16. "And I will see you soon; maybe even with another Alpha Zero game." That look 😂

  17. You are the best chess commentator because you show all scenarios. Great stuff keep it up!

  18. Caruana is so great player he beat magnus and sick magnus now we will see how he going to do it with the ultimate version of magnus,dead magnus

  19. You said if any games were good you would post them – post a BAD game, too.

  20. man, i really want to improve my game. i've been trying to read books and play, but it seems im making no progress at all. i really like how you explain whats going on in every key positions. i wish i could make such calculations

  21. At 9.09 afte King to F8, why Queen to H7 was not played?

  22. In the position you're showing at 7:46, why not rb7 for white and then maybe you can capture the rook on e5?

  23. A 6 hour battle shown in about 15 minutes is akin to how I write my end of semester exams in 3 hours after preparing for it the previous day 😂😂😂☺
