I have to admit, I don't have interest in watching this, I rather watch women's candidates. The real problem is this ridiculous drive to make gladiators out of thinking men. Why this has become a debate in tournaments I am not quite clear, but given the number of blitz and rapid tournaments recently, presumably there is an important element in obtaining sponsorship funding, which was related to decreased viewership of classical tournaments? Harddiskoptageren har plads til 100 timers hd-optagelse. . But in the end, there is no obstacle to make him look back to his chess board! Turning the thinking game into a circus of quick reflex instinctual tic tack toe is too high a price just to get a few more sponsors. Not to mention the fact that on long term if this format is introduced everywhere, players who are good in classical chess, but less good in faster time controls will have to search for another profession. If a game is drawn, a sudden-death encounter will follow immediately they will not wait for all the classical games to finish.

The idea to award points like in football sounds quite interesting and should be tried. I believe, chess is his life, and here and there there come seldomly some distractions, which turn his attention the other way - which is just perfectly fine! If I can smell Magnus' blood in the water, what are the chances Ding cannot? One could take a similar approach here: a blitz win is worth a classical draw. Or possibly 1 tournament with a unique format is not enough to allow players to sufficiently prepare. Classical chess is just naturally too drawish at the top level, and more drastic measures would need to be taken to lower the draw percentage. The media apparatus is using its powerful position to attack the thinking game with pipe-dream promises of huge jackpots and massive chess popularity just around the corner if only we listen to them and eliminate this tedious move pondering and the inevitable draws this leads to. When the world's elite are playing, are indignant lifelong fans really going to ignore events in protest? The former should perhaps be larger. The cost of the arrangement was predicted to be about 5 million approximately 672,000 , of which about half is for the prizes for the participants.

When I use a subjective term, you need to accept the fact that this format drastically reduces my interest to watch tournaments organized in it. The others can have good and poor performances but they have reached their limit in the improvement of the game. In the ninth and final round Carlsen will play against Caruana. What's the point to play classical games for 5 hours, and then determine the round winners with cheap few minute Armageddons? Due to him having played less than half the rounds, the three draws against Nakamura, Vachier-Lagrave and Anand that he had played in rounds 1—3 were discounted for tournament purposes, and counted only for rating purposes. I like fckeres' proposal of 5-3-2-0. Or possibly 1 tournament with a unique format is not enough to allow players to sufficiently prepare. It's been awesome, both in its classical games and in the Armageddon when classical has fallen flat.

Another point that needs to be made about this format, is that it's attractive to casual viewers. Every single match will have a winner: if the classical game ends in a draw Armageddon will follow, White has ten minutes, Black seven, but White needs to win. He will eventually begin to convert against champ and then all bets are off.

What could have been an interesting tournament has been turned into a joke. The Norway organisers deserve credit. . If the final classical draw percentage is high in this tournament, then even incentivizing the players with the modified scoring system of classical was not sufficient to lower the draw rate. Bd3 is a simple and easy to learn answer to the Caro-Kann. He is the only elite player that seems to be still actually improving the level of his game. One could take a similar approach here: a blitz win is worth a classical draw.

In any case, I suspect all the fretting about draws has more to do with the media parasites leaching a living off of the talents of top flight players than the greed of the competitors. Players were awarded 1½ points for a draw and an Armageddon win, and ½ points for a draw and an Armageddon loss. So, 5-3-2-0 feels just about right to me. The Norway organisers deserve credit.
