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. "The knight doesn't have a bright future there." I'm laughing so hard hahaha

  2. Anand also won his game and you made a video of it.

  3. Can you do keymar vs carlsen and keymar vs anand plz(Grenke)

  4. My thought before starting the video: "
    agadmator talking about a game of Peter Svidler, thats gonna be … interesting." But everything went well.

  5. Spoiler alert.
    OMG blue squares in 60 fps there's no coolest than that.

  6. Watch your videos a lot but first time comment. I know you read your comments and I have a request you might like to make happen. There was a tragic attacking player named Alvis Vitolins who I think is worthy of your chess attention. Just a thought…

  7. This is a request to agadmator
    I only follow your utube channel
    So i make u a request to please show the match between p harikrishna vs ding

  8. My two weaknesses are agadmator's chess videos and beer, preferably at the same time. In the spirit of Misha!

  9. The game was strategically instructive. I feel like I learned stuff : )

  10. I'm finally seeing new videos! I had to watch a couple of years worth of analysis to get to this point.

  11. @agadmator And Vishy in joint 2nd with his win against young Vince ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I hope you never show another game of svidler winning. Hes a pompous douchebag.

  13. Impressive game by Swidler. Bishop c6 is fantastic.

  14. Spoiler alert :
    Aya stark weapon flying in the air and right in the cold heart of night king.

  15. Why is the couch different all the time?! Whatโ€™s the meaning of this?

  16. I find Svidler's accent interesting (I watched the interview). His accent leans toward a British one, so I wander if he spent time in England. Wikipedia says he is a cricket fan, but that's all I found by way of explanation. Anyone know?

  17. Naiditsch looked like he was lost in the forest.

  18. I have a question about the middlegame: when Svidler played …Nb7, did he forsee the blue squares would be used on the d-file?

  19. Thanks Agad for your informative video ๐Ÿ‘

  20. #suggestion

    Harikrishna Vs Ding Liren – Shenzhen Masters 2019 – Liren lost. Yes, Ding Liren lost

  21. I watched this game juste before playing a classical game in tournament in Sousse Tunisia, i won and After the game a Friend told me, your game is an illustration of thรฉ two weaknesses. Thank you for inspiration

  22. Uh what about Vishi, he also has a win :)))

  23. I hope Svidler brought his driver's license to the tournament.

    Because he took Naiditsch to school!

    Positional beauty!

  24. Promoting a guy that called you a douchbag ,low character by agadmator

  25. that pun at 5:20 was so good even Agadmator smiled at the joke

  26. Naiditsch just seemed to be moving about aimlessly in the middle game….

  27. 3:53 — Nf2…and it will not move for the rest of the game. (When you're N+N versus B+N, and one of your knights does not move, you're not going to win.)

  28. My connection was a bit slow, had to rewind a few times just to hear "hello everyone".

  29. That footage of Naiditsch made the lighting look so bright and glaring, if I were playing in those conditions I would have to wear my prescription dark gray sunglasses! Is the lighting really that bright and glaring??

  30. Svidler is getting bigger with every new Foto ๐Ÿ˜€

  31. Grenke Video Team ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช

  32. Videos are improving all the time, good stuff Antonio

  33. 2:03 ๐Ÿ˜‚ queen trade this is hardcore chess.
    Naiditsch: Queen trade?
    Svidler: Okay, but not now
    Svidler: Queen trade?
    Naiditsch: was okay but not now

  34. 10:31 why knight is not captured by white? Rook is defended by queen๐Ÿค”

  35. Svidler is a fat "DOUCH" and will never be the world champion.

  36. 8:55 why not just block black's h-pawn with h4? Then after Qb3 defend the b-pawn with Rd2 and everything is protected.

  37. So 4:50 is that just a hidden challenge in noticing the position is in fact different?
