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. A Najdorf against Anand. The kid's got guts! I wonder if he'll play 1.e4 against Fabiano and hope for a Petrov! Roflmao

  2. John snow will be the king again and everyone kneel

  3. Can't think of two Grandmasters who would be LESS impresed by the "stare" than Anand and Carlsen one is to chill the other way too tough

  4. Nothing better than drinking a beer while watching agadmator's chess vídeos.. Men stuff

  5. You should make swag of " feel free to pause to the video and find the best move

    Congratulations you are an excellent tactician"

  6. Keymer shud stop his deadly stares to his oponents esp senior and respectable ones..and better get his eyes on the board..

  7. Awesome attempts, and more so Arya "sitting on the iron throne"!

  8. Ist very easy. If you win it´s good to play on both sides. If you loose then it´s bad 🙂

  9. It seems soo logic an clear when you explain it!

  10. That´s gonne be a hard tournament for Keymer. He is about 100-300 ELO lower than every other player. He can learn a lot. But he also can suffer a hard psychological blow. Last year when he won the Open and qualified for the Classics his coach Leko wasn´t sure if he is already so far to face such a strong field. Let´s hope for the best and that he manages to grab some draws. "He´s our only hope" 🙂

  11. ANAND- Illuminati Confirmed. The video was not moving.

  12. Someone mentioned "Anand was a World Champion before Keymer was born".. LOL

  13. Nice game by IndianTiger Vishy 🐯👌👌👏

  14. This game just proves that it is almost never a good idea to challenge someone in an opening he's major in even though you prepared and you'll win some time in the opening but the opponent just knows the middlegame much better and you'll probably lose.
    I'd say the only time to challenge someone in his repertoire is when you have a sharp novelty or an unusual position which the other one has never seen so he can't adapt to it through his knowledge of other middlegame positions in similar lines.

  15. How do you keep coming up with these titles? They're really good, where do you get the inspiration?

  16. "Grandpa, please tell us a story"
    – " Gather round children. It's time to tell you about the tale of Vishy,Vince and The Najdorf".

    "It was a long time ago…"

  17. Maybe Anand is moving, but very, very slowly.

  18. THE looks by keymer could be the Reason he is losing

  19. for GoT i'm expecting more pointless time wasting with bad acting, horrible writing and plenty of medieval teleportation (if i didn't love the first 3 books so much and the show wasn't the only way to see how the story ends, i'd have given up on this monumental PoS a long time ago)

  20. Twist: the video was actually playing every time

  21. Anand my man.. plays simple chess with class

  22. after the deadly stare enemy king resigned the game

  23. Vince in this photo looks a bit like the kid from "The Big Lebowski". I mean when I saw him I giving the stare, I almost heard: "You see what happens Larry?"

  24. Quotes are too small for mobiles. Do something.

  25. Could be possible that Vince was trying much harder to beat Magnus and took more time. With Anand he figured is slightly weaker so he possibly did not want to repeat another yesterday long match and thought he could edge Anand, but young Vince learned a lesson.

  26. so he lost both games? good thing he has the stare

  27. 1:55 is it me or does it look like Keymer has a toupee. Or he normally has a long mohawk, and he flattens it out for chess 😀

  28. I thought the video will be like this only ……NOPE STILL NOT MOVING 😂😂

  29. Congrats to Vince for facing the great Anand like a champ. Even getting a game on against such a player as Anand is an incredible achievement.

  30. Vincent looks like magnus when he calculates with all the eye blinking
