World Chess Champion Ding Liren returns for the 86th edition of the Tata Steel Masters, a 14-player single round-robin taking place from 13-28 January in Wijk aan Zee, the Netherlands.

The time control is 100 minutes for 40 moves, followed by 50 minutes for the rest of the game, with a 30-second increment per move from move 1. A tie for first place will be decided by two blitz (3+2) games. If still tied, the players keep playing single “sudden death” games where White gets 2.5 minutes and Black 3 minutes until one side wins. The monetary prizes will be shared evenly. Official website:

  1. To whom it might concerns: Maghsoodloo missed 0-0-0 and it was a blunder (from post-match interview). Qe4 (and exchange sac to follow) was the only way to stay in the game because Nd3+ was the deadly threat.

  2. Max lost this game because he SUCKS. I can beat him blindfolded with a full queen odds, 1 minute without increment on my clock vs. 90 minutes + 30 for him, while conducting a simultaneous match against Ding, Nepo, Gukesh, Pragg, Nodirbek, Magnus, Hikaru, Fabi, Dubov, Kasparov, Tal, Morphy, Levy, Agad, Medo, both Botez sisters, Danya, Eric Rosen, Mr Beast and Moistcritikal (and beating all of them) while juggling 4 swords with the right hand and typing a shakespearean piece with the left hand.

  3. "I'm gonna show you the way… Or should I show you the way? Yes, I'm gonna show you the way" ))))) masterpiece of chess commentary))

  4. #suggestion Hey Agad, today is Mequinho's 72 birthday! Couldn't you please bring a game of him today ?

  5. At 8:02 after bishop a7, why is rook to a8 not a good move? Skewers the bishop and leads to checkmate right? @agadmator

  6. This game is what I call "The Comedy of Errors". Entertaining game, I was puzzled myself when I was watching it live yesterday.

  7. Brutal game to lose. I hate when I snatch defeat from the hands of victory.

  8. Crazy game tough game to lose but as with any game of chess only takes a couple bad moves or a couple really good ones to turn the tide of a Game thanks for the Game have a Great Day

  9. At pause the video why doesn't NF6 work?

  10. Thank you for showing us the way after pondering for 2secs. May your kingdom be forever oh great king Agadmator!

  11. Ratan Tata should be thanked for sponsoring this tournament
    He has done a lot of good for both India and the World

  12. Antonio, do you have a marketing PhD? I always fall for the headlines: Game of The Century, Tal's Wife Wins the Game, This Game is a Movie, Etc. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  13. "He has lost 3 games in a row, that's incredible…"πŸ˜‚

  14. Antonio is lying as usual. After Max resigned the best movie was Queen b7 according to the engine not g7 like shows. White needs to move its king to e6 to hold the position or is totally losing. This Antonio and his stupid narrative is something else man. I tell you.

  15. Finally showing us a Parham-victory! Thank you πŸ™‚

  16. I feel like every Parham game I've watched in this tournament involves him just not giving a shit about his rooks πŸ˜‚

  17. Parham's extreme aggressive style is super fun to watch. A unique genius for sure

  18. If the N is lost anyway why not Nb3 ab messing up the structure?
    At 8:20 Bc5, isn't a2 unstoppable?

  19. 9:36 β€œdo you know dee way????……..” click click click. πŸ˜ƒ

  20. Bravo πŸ‘ what composure to take the W 😊

  21. I think it's partly the most requested game because everyone is a bit in love with Max (or am I speaking just for myself?)

  22. Max clearly wins the haircut game.
    It looks like like a solid slab, not a single hair outta place….double exclam.

  23. "Parham on a rampage." Yeah, I wanna see that.

  24. "He played brilliantly, it's just that his opponents didn't care."
    This line should be on qoutes section in one of agad's videos.

  25. Hard to believe this was a classical time control game.

  26. Ra8 looks like something that would best most players of my caliber. 8:03

  27. This check would be mate before you ever pick up the Queen on A1.

  28. 'i'm gonna show you the way… should i show you the way?…. i'm gonna show you the way'…. absolute mastery agad!!… i'm a 900 level who loves chess nonetheless and your videos are better than a fine cup of coffee…. cheers🍻( bar… not a library πŸ˜‚)

  29. brother I love your videos but u have to be evaluation bar

  30. At 3:30, Black Nd3 would’ve been instant win (discovery at next move, taking White Queen). Or am I mistaken?

  31. 3:36 why not castle or move the rook? He's giving up his rook to protect his knight, isn't he?

  32. Do you think he’s ever thought about putting makeup on the mole and then drawing the mole on the other side of his face to fuxk with people?

  33. 2022 WFRCC: Magnus, Hikaru & FIDE cheated Wesley So, who should've been 2020, 2022 & 2024 candidates wildcard because Wesley So won in classical games (45+15=60) while Hikaru won in rapid games (25+5+2.5=32.5min).



    That's the summary. The ff is the long version.

    2 questions


    Why isn't it unfair to Wesley So that FIDE lowered the WFRCC time controls from 60min in 2019 to 32.5min in 2022 ( w/o changing the name of course to 'rapid WFRCC'. if they change the name, then there's no problem ) considering the ff things?


    In the 2019 WFRCC, Hikaru & Magnus did better in 15+2=17min games than 60min games. Wesley So did better in vice-versa.



    – (0min,10min) = blitz

    – [10min,60min) = rapid

    – [60min,120min) = classical but unrated for 2200+ players.

    – [120min,infinity) = classical

    Hence, Wesley So should be the CLASSICAL WFRCC and then Hikaru is the rapid WFRCC.

    Wesley So beat Magnus 3x CLASSICAL games in a row HUMAN VS HUMAN, no computer prep!

    The last time this happened was Vishy Anand vs Alexei Shirov in 2000 FIDE classical WCC! (Not to be confused w/ 2000 PCA classical WCC where Garry cheated Alexei.)


    Yet for some reason FIDE insists that both 32.5min & 60min are 'slow rapid' while 17min is 'fast rapid'. They didn't even define these terms.

    Check out the maths here:

    I see only 2 reasonable definitions for slow & fast rapid.

    -Def1 – Slow rapid means unrated classical [60,120) & fast rapid is rapid [10,60).

    This means:

    – There's no classical WFRCC.

    – Wesley So is slow rapid WFRCC.

    – Hikaru is fast rapid WFRCC.

    – Hence, Hikaru is NOT a successor of Wesley So.

    -Def2 – Fast rapid & slow rapid cut up rapid [10,60) into resp [10,35) and [35,60).

    2 issues here:

    – 60min is not in either of these intervals.

    – Also, 32.5 is in [10,35).

    So neither 60 nor 32.5 are slow rapid. Lol.

    This means:

    – There's no slow rapid WFRCC.

    – Wesley So is classical WFRCC.

    – Hikaru is rapid WFRCC, specifically fast rapid WFRCC.

    – Hence, again, Hikaru is NOT a successor of Wesley So.

    – Def3 – The definitions must be: Since 15+2=17 is fast rapid, we must have

    – [10,X) fast rapid &

    – [X,120) slow rapid, for some

    17 < X < 32.5.

    Like say X is some arbitrary number like X=20 or X=30. Lol yeah right!!



    I believe the 2022 WFRCC was a conspiracy to get Hikaru / Magnus to win in parallel w/ the Hans Niemann situation. Think about this:

    – Magnus quits the 2022 Sinquefield Cup. 1 day later, Hans Niemann, an American rival of Magnus, is harmed in another tournament, the 2022 CGC in that Hans is removed!

    – Magnus quits the 2023 WCC. 1 month later, Wesley So, an American rival of Magnus, is harmed in another tournament, the 2022 WFRCC in that the time controls are reduced w/o changing the name!

    I hardly believe this is a coincidence. I bet Magnus even directed (or conspired w/) FIDE to remove (and hence cheat) Sergey (not American but still Jewish like Hans & Bobby) from the 2022 candidates. Sergey's replacement Liren even cited the ff as role models: Magnus, Garry & Veselin instead of Wesley, Bobby & Vlad ( as described in FlNsFKeq-iE ).

    Of course there's no conspiracy at all if FIDE just says

    'Ok Wesley So is classical WFRCC & Hikaru is rapid WFRCC. Sorry for the confusion!'

    For chess:

    The ability to play chess is the sign of a gentleman. The ability to play chess well is the sign of a wasted life.

    For 9LX:

    The ability to play 9LX is the sign of a gentleman or a lady. The ability to play 9LX well is the sign that you're not Magnus Carlsen. LOL!!!!


    Consequently, why shouldn't Wesley So have been a wildcard in 2020, 2022 or 2024 candidates as the 2019 WFRCC winner considering

    -Fabi was a wildcard in the 2019 WFRCC quarter-finals as the 2018 WCC runner-up, not by FRC virtue

    -Hikaru & Magnus were 2019 WFRCC quarter & semi-finals wildcards, by FRC virtue for the 2018 unofficial WFRCC but lol the 2018 game itself was obviously for chess virtue


    Well I suppose there's that being good at chess means you'll be good at 9LX but not vice-versa (unless you're Magnus lol)…

    Interview while imprisoned


    Pablo Mercado: So what is your advice to the Filipino chess players?

    Uncle Bobby Fischer: My advice is to give up chess and take up Fischer Random.

    – 2004Oct11, 15 years before nephew Wesley So became the inaugural WFRCC in CLASSICAL time controls.

  34. 3rd: Hans Niemann = next Bobby Fischer

    – Wesley So = current Bobby Fischer

    – Bobby Fischer's ghost = old Bobby Fischer

    – Beth Harmon = Bobby Fischer in another universe

    Each of these 4 'is a prodigy, had a rather dark childhood and is American'.

    Speaking of Wesley So

    Hikaru's (the rapid WFRCC) wife almost beat Wesley So's (the classical WFRCC) girlfriend!

    2023 USCC – Indeed Carissa Yip won and thanked Wesley So as her secret second in the 2023 USCC closing ceremony speech.

    But in Carissa vs Atousa, Carissa was losing most of the game. Atousa just blundered in the end.

    it's so sharp
