TIL about a chess tournament in which a grandmaster by the name of Jan-Krzysztof Duda lost every single game he played against his opponents, until the very last one: a win against Magnus Carlsen, the current world chess champion, ending Magnus' 2-year, 125-game winning streak. firstpost.com/sports/worl…

I made a chess move against Phish at Fort Worth in 1995 during game #1, currently I'm a moderator for chess grandmasters on Twitch.tv AMA

From Cal Expo to MSG, I saw most of Fall 95. I never studied chess as a kid, so it was pretty lucky that my move was accepted and Greenpeace Mike picked me to go onstage in Fort Worth. Earlier this year I started following chess online and became a chat moderator for Grandmaster Hrant Melkumyan, a top 100 GM with great taste in music. I often get to be the dj and have definitely snuck Phish into the playlist. Phish's announcement today about a rematch for charity inspired me to share about my experience. Thanks Phish!

Why don't Grandmasters play longer games on Chess.com?

Browsing through Grandmaster pages on Chess.com, it seems that they rarely play Rapid (10-30 minute games), but instead only play 1-5 minute. They may have a few Rapid games but it's usually less than 1% of their total games. Does anyone else find this strange? Not to say he/she wouldn't enjoy speed chess, but wouldn't a Grandmaster prefer to mostly play long, quality games with enough time to consider each move, and not have the timer be such a deciding factor?

[Chess] Grandmaster accused of cheating, responds hilariously

GM Tigran Petrosyan had a great showing in the recent 2020 Pro Chess League Finals, leading the Armenia Eagles to victory. He played well above his rating, taking down stronger opponent after stronger opponent with ease. However, some were quick to notice that Petrosyan repeatedly looked down at his desk while playing, possibly indicating that he was using a chess engine to cheat. For reference, notice how his opponent, GM Wesley So, doesn't look away from the screen at all.

After the match, So hinted in a comment that he suspected Petrosyan of cheating:

> Yeah, Petrosian played better than Magnus Carlsen yesterday. I need to have some of that secret gin also. I wonder what happened to the Eagles' top scorers Andriasian and Shant Sargsyan. Why they don't play on chess.com anymore ;)

(The other Armenian players So referenced were banned for cheating about 6 months ago.)

Here's the good part. Petrosyan responded to So in a broken, copypasta-esque rant, challenging him to a $5000 1v1 match:

>Are you kidding ??? What the **** are you talking about man ? You are a biggest looser i ever seen in my life ! You was doing PIPI in your pampers when i was beating players much more stronger then you! You are not proffesional, because proffesionals knew how to lose and congratulate opponents, you are like a girl crying after i beat you! Be brave, be honest to yourself and stop this trush talkings!!! Everybody know that i am very good blitz player, i can win anyone in the world in single game! And "w"esley "s"o is nobody for me, just a player who are crying every single time when loosing, ( remember what you say about Firouzja ) !!! Stop playing with my name, i deserve to have a good name during whole my chess carrier, I am Officially inviting you to OTB blitz match with the Prize fund! Both of us will invest 5000$ and winner takes it all!
I suggest all other people who's intrested in this situation, just take a look at my results in 2016 and 2017 Blitz World championships, and that should be enough... No need to listen for every crying babe, Tigran Petrosyan is always play Fair ! And if someone will continue Officially talk about me like that, we will meet in Court! God bless with true! True will never die ! Li

Beating Magnus Carlsen's Grandmaster Coach on Chess.com

Did you guys know that Magnus Carlsen's coach, Grandmaster Simen Agdestein is active on chess.com blitz? I was lucky enough to play and beat him with the white pieces. It's one step closer to beating Magnus himself :D. This is the link to this game,

https://www.chess.com/live/game/2084876870

Below is my word analysis of this game,

Queens Gambit Declined variation, favorite of many grandmasters.

3… a6:

Grandmasters like to mess up the move orders to get to favorable positions, try to mess up their opponents from memorizing certain variations. We can see Magnus and Hikaru take this to an extreme with the bongcloud, completely messing up their opponent’s preparations.

  1. Nf3:

Already I cannot play Bg5 here as usual, where I can pin the knight and put my knight on e2 instead of f3. This gives black better chances of equality.

  1. Bf4:

This is a universal response when dealing with unorthodox variations. I could try Bg5, but black has the same idea with Be7, trading off the dark square bishop early for an equal endgame.

7… Qd6

I already do not know this opening very well, Simen successfully accomplished his opening tricks

  1. h3:

Playing it safe, don’t want him trading off the knight with his bishop, in these semi-closed positions knights are better than bishops.

  1. 0-0

Completely even position, great opening with the black pieces, but white still has the initiative to attack because of the weakness on the queenside. I begin preparation for the queenside attack, a typical idea in the Queens Gambit Declined.

  1. Ne2:

Looking to open up the c file for my rook. Actually a horrible move. Should have played e4 with a slight advantage for white,

  1. e4 dxe4 16. Ne4 Qh6 17. Ne5 with pressure on c6, black cannot cover c6 with nc4. White has a weak d4 pawn, but black’s development is slow so it is not a threat. White is slightly better.

Now white loses a pawn.

However, the position begins to go downhill for my grandmaster opponent as he does not have good followup targets, and is forced on a unsuccessful defensive because of the open h-file

20…. dxc4

Critical mistake, underestimating my attack.

Should have played the intermediate move 20…Qh4+

I have 2 options

g3, gh2+, Ng2, Nf5 with strong attack, black is better

Ke2, dxc4, Eh1, Qg3 closing off any queen and rook ideas, white king is also very vulnerable. Black is winning

  1. Qg4

White is threatening checkmate on
