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. He drank that water like it was tea or vodka.

  2. it's the knight check nananananananananananananananana

  3. No increment seems like it was to reduce the draws that everyone is complaining about. At their level though, does it matter? All they have to do if they want to draw is go into a well known line of a well known opening and they will probably both know exactly how to draw the game.

  4. Congratulations, you are an excellent sipper of waters

  5. 17:35 why didn't he consider knight c3 while explaining? It seems like a nice move?

  6. 'You are not very likely to win points….. Or are you? We'll just have to see'

  7. 14:59 "There now is definitely danger of capturing the bishop" – gives zero reasons. As usual. Just sees the moves and "Blablabla- the rook moved, to e5, that is closer to the centre, by accident it attacks this pawn and is generally brilliant, because it is played by Carlsen, who is playing White and Black according to the frequent mixing of the F***ING PLAYERS". agadamator in a nutshell.
    Playes Ne6 … "Again … Knight to Ceee 6" shakes head horrible

  8. Get into the game already enough talking

  9. I think Elon Musk and Magnus Carlesn might be coming from the same planet (I don't mean the Earth)…

  10. 4:10 How about 7.Ne5 dxe5(d5)? Winning an exchange or having nice knight on e5 and 8…Bb7 looks just weird

  11. This is amazing play from magnus…iam spellbound:-)

  12. I love watching Meier on Chess dot com. Nice to see him appear on this channel.

  13. 16:50 I guess Meier said f**k chess rules ima capture in front of queen

  14. 13:00 I would play queen to c1 cuz pawn can take if queen takes and you take the knight if the horse doesn’t move after the pawn

  15. After queen to e4, knight to c3!
    Isn't that saving the position??

  16. At 7:05 after the knight to c6 from white, why not go castle to c8? You can take the knight with the castle after that and it will still be protected by the queen and if white then moves the knight somewhere else, black gets a free queen

  17. Of all tensions on the board, all you are worried about is a beardless photo?

  18. For the moment we have the bearded one. 😹

  19. Knight here Knight here Knight here?……!!!!!!

  20. @10.26 min
    Instead of Qd3 can't Ne3 be played

  21. I am just wandering how magnus see this video I mean you are trying to keep the curiosity in audience by not saying who wins but magnus knows who won.

  22. What about white plays his knight to c3?

  23. how come nobody in comments mention carlsens HUGE center 🙂

  24. He shaved his beard. So? Is that worth commenting on? Lol.

  25. Insanely complex game. Both played well.

  26. you are an excellent finder of sneaky tactics 😂😂😂😂
