Magnus Carlsen and his new proposal…

Magnus Carlsen and his new proposal: For the dispute of the worldwide tournament. According to Magnus Carlsen, a yearly tournament by K.O. system (or knockouts competition) would invigorate the system and would give chances to more players.

However, this is nothing new, because the FIDE already implemented this formula from 1999, which resulted in a number of ghostly champions that today lie in the cemetery of the elephants (the Jalifman, Ponomariov, Kasimzdhanov & Cia.).

On the other hand, we understand that only a king deserves the world chess crown, the best. And not players who win eventually with the chance that can help them in an isolated game or an Armageddon.

Candidates tournament…

The eight aspirants that will fight for facing the world champion, Magnus Carlsen, have been defined…Β Anand, Karjakin, Svidler, Caruana, Nakamura, Topalov and Giri y Aronian.

The event will take place in Moscow, fromΒ 10th to 30th March 2016 and is sponsored by the Tashin Group of millionaire Samuel Karapetyan. He granted the β€˜wild card’ (that means, the invitation place for the sponsor) to Levon Aronian.

Are there any favorites? A priori, it seems like the experts who have discarded to Anand and Topalov. Caruana, Nakamura and Karjakin are the best ones in the bets.

We will have to see how things evolve during the next months, for example, in the great classic of Wijk ann Zee.

The tournament offers more than 500,000 dollars in prizes.

Who would be the candidate at the world chess championship title?

Fide has confirmed that all the candidates have signed the contract and will take part in the tournament. It will take place from 10th to 30th March, in Moscow. The eight candidates are Anand, Karjakin, Svidler, Caruana, Nakamura, Topalov, Giri and Aronian.

Who dares to give the prognosis?

I would say that Nakamura and Karjakin are the fit players, along with Svidler, while Aronian will be the favorite one and Giri a rising player, with high expectations.
