The Aimchess Rapid is the 8th of 9 events on the $1.6 million 2022 Meltwater Champions Chess Tour and takes place on chess24 from October 14-21. The 16-player field will be cut in half by the 4-day round-robin Prelims. The total prize fund is $150,000, with $750 for a win and $250 for a draw in the Prelims. The quarterfinals and semi-finals are 1-day, 4-game matches, while the final will feature two such matches over two days.

The players have 15 minutes for all their moves, plus a 10-second increment starting from move 1. In the Prelims there are 3 points for a win and 1 for a draw. If a tiebreak is required the players will play two 5+3 games and then, if needed, a single Armageddon game, where White has 5 minutes to Black’s 4, but a draw counts as a win for Black. No draw offers are allowed before move 40. Official website:

Hello everyone and welcome to another Video that nicely demonstrates hopefully That that chess is the greatest game There ever was and will be it’s a game From the second day of the aim chest Preliminary City had Rapport versus Chocolate mamidyarov and it’s a game That lasts only 16 moves but it’s it’s Such a such a masterpiece that I am I’m I feel privileged to even show it to you Guys so now let’s dive straight into it That wrap up has the white pieces and he Opens with E4 we have E5 by Mama jar of Knight to F3 Knight to C6 and now uh not Uh an Italian game or the real Lopez or Even the scotch but rather G3 this is The Constantinople variation and it can Serve as a surprise against many Opponents but on the other hand you do Give up the advantage of playing white Because it’s well if black knows what Black is doing it’s very easy to Equalize this so here are Knight to F6 But upon the D3 and the immediate Pawn To D5 mamajarov says if you don’t want The center I am grab having the full Center e counter Sun D5 and now a nut Knight captures on D5 there are a lot of Games with Knight captures on D5 but Rather Queen characters on D5 and there Are only a few games where where this Was played Bishop to G2 now uh it’s very Easy to to pick up a Tempo on the queen So that’s why Knight captures on D5 is

Better uh Bishop to G2 and the Now Pawn To E4 and this is uh uh not a new move But it’s been played only in one game Here usually people play Bishop G4 Bishop to B4 check but E4 has been Played only once in the Yugoslavian team Championship of 1990 between Sava Nikolic and the dragon uh perovich that Ended by by black winning this game so It’s um I don’t know if this game came As um as an inspiration to mamajaro Because this move is definitely not Recommended by the engine so okay and of Course it is now as of move six that we Have a com no it’s not sorry uh here in That game night the G5 was played but Here Knights the C3 and it is not as of Move seven that we have a completely new Game so the queen is attacked before you Figure out what to do with the knight uh Bishop to B4 Mama jar of pins the Knight And now Knight to G5 preparing to pick Up the four Pawn at some point Bishop to G4 attacking Robert’s Queen here Queen D2 and now Bishop captures and C3 now as Now the ones Queen D2 is played the Knight is no longer pinned now this is a Threat so Bishop captures B captures and C3 if black castles Queen side you will Have the B file for your rook and now uh Mum yarov does exactly that he castles Queen side and Richard castles King side And as usual when we have uh castles of Opposite sides it’s definitely gonna be

A Race So here Knight the E5 notice that You can never capture here because uh Both Queen and Rook are attacking the D2 Square so mamidarov could uh sorry Robert could play something like Queen E3 but he goes for C4 which is also fine Queen the D4 attacking the rook and A1 And not just Rook to B1 as that is what You want to do here we have H6 attacking The Knight and now uh you you what you Want to do is play Knight captures on e4 It doesn’t seem like you want to do this Because after Knight captures and Knight Captures you can’t really capture back Because there’s a there’s a problem with The queen hanging and also if Bishop Captures here then the problem is uh Just Queen characters and after a pawn Characters there’s uh not uh the Immediate characters but Knight to F3 With Chuck King to G2 and now Knight Captures and D2 with check and black is Just much better here upper full piece And completely winning so what you would Have to do here after this Captain is Play Queen to B for now now you’re Threatening the B7 pawn and next you can Capture an E4 and this is perfectly fine Probably some like Queen to B6 then Bishop captures on e4 and the game Continues nothing spectacular happening Here but after H6 uh Robert said uh all Right I’m gonna play Queen to B4 first And then I’m gonna do something with the

Knight also makes sense as mum here has To do something about that B7 Pawn but Does he really that’s the that’s the big Question here so feel free to pause the Video and try to find an absolutely Crushing move for white here while I Give you a for black here what I’ll give You a couple of seconds So for those of you who are able to do It congratulations on realizing that you Can allow Queen characters on B7 and for Those of you who just want to enjoy the Show uh age captures and G5 this is the Only move that gives the black the Winning advantage and mamidarov played It so what happens now okay Queen Capture Sun B7 this is what you you paid The the price for King to D7 and now uh It’s again very hard to continue this Game but here Bishop to B2 and it makes Sense attacks the queen if the queen Moves to weird Square the Knight on E5 Hangs uh I mean if if the position opens Up the king is on D7 many many threats Are are lurking here but as uh well we Now have this position on the board we Also reach the position from the Thumbnail as this is where mamadar just Played Rook captures on H2 absolutely Spectacular move we can even show it in Slow motion look at this Rook captures On H2 absolutely stunning and it was in This position on move 16 that Richard Resigned in the game as there is nothing

More to be done here I mean absolutely Absolute Masterpiece this is uh this is What you want to print out and hang on Your like refrigerator and on your you Know bedroom wall or you know just Absolute absolute master class uh the Problem is uh there’s nothing for you to Do if you capture the queen here then It’s a forced Checkmate in 10 moves or Maybe less depending on how good you are Rook captures on G2 check King captures And Bishop to F3 check King to G1 and Now just Rook the h8 and there’s no Defense against Rook to H1 Checkmate This is all forced uh you will have to Parry a few checks for example Queen C6 Check uh Pawn to C6 Queen to B7 check But now we move the king and now there Are no more useful checks next is Rook To H1 this is just Unstoppable and it Doesn’t even help if you don’t capture The queen because the this is still a Threat the the queen side has nothing to Do with this game whatsoever from this Point on the problem is even if you play Something like Rook fd1 you free up the F1 Square for the king doesn’t matter Just Rook captures on G2 King characters And not The Sensational Bush of the H3 With check and you don’t have a good Reply if you capture with the King just Queen captures on F2 and next Rook to h8 Just ends the game that’s pretty much it And if you don’t capture the bishop you

Could play something like King to G1 now Comes at night the F3 with check King The H1 and now just Rook the h8 Threatening all sorts of nasty Discoveries like Bishop to F1 would be Made in one so white could try and stir Some trouble here let’s say queen to B5 Check but there’s the the the absolutely Disgusting King to d8 and look at this Queen to B8 check seems like you’ve lost The Rook but nope Bishop comes to the Rescue Bishop back to C8 to the starting Square opening up a check from The Rook Blocking check from the queen king G2 Rook H2 check King to f one and The Rook Captures on F1 Checkmate so absolutely Absolutely brilliant and not only is Playing brilliant chess in this Tournament but he’s also doing doing Very well on the general standings after After two days of rapid play these are The standings so another Rebecca of Leading with 17 points in Seoul lead Followed by 16 points darling Magnus Carlson with six with 15 points Jan Shishtavuda and Arjun edgesi who Defeated Magnus Carlsen in a very nice Game then with 12 points of instant Camera nichigiri and the Google those Are the top eight for the moment as the Only the top eight proceed to the main Main event of the amgs rapid and then From 9 to 16 we have already had it up David Anthony
