Magnus Carlsen faces his World Championship challenger Ian Nepomniachtchi and ex-challenger Fabiano Caruana in the FTX Crypto Cup, the 6th event on the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour and the 3rd and final Major. The 3-day preliminary stage sees the 16 players play each other once before the bottom 8 are eliminated while the top 8 advance to a knockout. The prize fund is $320,000, including a $100,000 Bitcoin bonus. The winner also qualifies to September's Tour Final.

The time control is 15 minutes for all moves, with a 10-second increment per move from move 1. The knockout match-ups are held over two days, with a 4-game match each day. If the match score is 1:1, the tie is decided in a blitz playoff. Two 5+3 blitz games are played followed, if needed, by an Armageddon game, where White has 5 minutes to Black's 4 but a draw counts as a win for Black. Official website: championschesstour.com

    14:03 I feel Rook to e3 was better... then you can use knight to take queen or check next move and sacrifice rook for rook leaving him with only a queen against your 3 pieces

    Me: Hikaru was once an associate of ours. They call him Magnus Carlsen. Son: The world champion? Me: Well, Hikaru wasn't exactly the world champion. He was the one who sent to beat the fucking world champion. Hikaru is a man of focus, commitment, sheer will. I once saw him beat a grandmaster with the Bongcloud. With. The. Fucking. Bongcloud.
