Magnus Carlsen, Anish Giri, Praggnanandhaa and Wesley So play from the San Francisco Ferry Building as the 2022 Meltwater Champions Chess Tour season ends with the Finals from November 14-20. They’re joined on the chess24 Playzone by Arjun Erigaisi, Jan-Krzysztof Duda, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov and Liem Le as the 8 players compete for $210,000 in a 7-round all-play-all event. Each match consists of 4 rapid games, with $7,500 for a winner in rapid chess.
If a match is tied 2:2, two blitz games are played followed, if needed, by Armageddon. A tiebreak winner earns $5,000 and the loser $2,500. The time control for each rapid game is 15 minutes, with a 10-second increment from move 1. The blitz tiebreak games are 5+3, while for Armageddon 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.

Hello everyone and welcome back to day Four of the meltwater Champions Chester Finals it is Arjun ericais versus Shakir Mamijarov and this is their fourth game Which is also very important because uh Arjun is leading the match here he got His first win and he got his win in the Second game game one and three ended in A draw so mama jarov needs a win to Bounce back and force tie breaks now as Soon as I saw the final position of this Game I knew I was going to show it on The channel uh because it's absolutely Spectacular it I knew it was gonna make A wonderful pause the video moment so Hope you guys enjoy it as well uh now Let's dive straight into it uh Arjun has The white pieces and he opens with E4 my Media goes for G6 the so-called modern Defense or the robots defense D4 Bishop To G7 Knight to F3 and now Pawn to D6 so Might be uh having some ideas so maybe Knight to D7 or Knight to C6 and then at Some point later on uh striking against White Center with Ponte E5 Bishop to C4 Knight to F6 and now Queen to E2 we have Knighted the C6 and now Pawn to H3 so Nothing new here for the moment finally Pawn to E5 and D captures on E5 we have D captures and there is one game where C3 was played but here Arjun just Castles King side and it is now as of Move 8 that we have a completely new Game
Also castles uh Rook the D1 attacking Mom made out of screen on on d8 and Queen to E7 we have Knight to C3 now With ideas of bringing the Knight to D5 Pawn to H6 and now Knight to D5 right Away now that's a too strong uh a steed To just leave it there on D5 so Knight Captures and here uh Bishop captures on D5 was played I guess a case could be Made for either capture several captures Not so much as Bishop to E6 will be Annoying uh but yeah it depends on how You want to play this game you could Capture with the bishop or with the pawn In the game Arjun played Bishop captures On D5 and not Knight the D for Mama Jarov also forces a trade as the queen On E2 is attacked so Knight captures With e Captain D for the bishop nicely Defends that pawn and the bishop to F Form Um arjun's Bishops are developed very Nicely and now Rook to E8 here with the Ideas of maybe C6 you chase away the Bishop and then you pick up the E4 Pawn But picking up the E4 Pawn is not uh as Easy as you would think as long as this Bishop controls this diagonal so here we Have Pawn to E5 Which is very very interesting uh you You might consider also something like Rook D1 if you just were worried about This but this is also a very nice spawn To E5 and now if you capture an E5 which
You can the problem is uh after Bishop Captures an E5 Rook D1 you don't have F6 Because the bishop controls this Diagonal you would have to trade here at Bishop to F6 captures captures and after Characters and captures white would Finish by capturing the C7 pawn and yes The material is equal both players have A rook and the bishop pair and the six Pawns but white has two Pawn Islands Black has three Pawn islands and it will Be much much uh harder for black to Defend his pawns uh with perfect play Probably a draw but it will be much Harder to play with black so instead After E5 we have C6 chasing with the Bishop Bishop to B3 and now Pawn to C5 We have Queen to D2 now going after the H6 pawn and pawn to G5 Bishop to G3 and Now Bishop to E6 now once the bishop is Eliminated probably mamajar will be able To capture an E5 Bishop captures an E6 Queen captures and now Ponta F4 first Eliminating Um the G5 Pawn which is uh in arjun's Way of going after the H6 pawn and also For the moment defending the E5 Pawn so If Shakira wants to go through he will Have to capture an F4 which he does g Captures on F4 Bishop captures and now Queen to G6 this is a very interesting Move because uh capturing an E5 was also Interesting I'll just show what happens If Bishop captures on E5 now Rook to E1
Isn't all that impressive because you Can play Bishop captures on F4 and Attack the White Queen but white can Ignore you and just capture the bishop However now Comes The Rook a queen Captures Rook on E1 Rook captures and Rook captures an E1 with check King H2 And now let's say Rook to E6 guarding The H6 pawn and you would get this Position where shahidar would have two Rooks for a queen he would also be up a Pawn and if anyone is to be preferred Here it is definitely black so instead After Bishop captures an F4 uh he goes For uh Queen to G6 because this is not Force the uh uh if Bishop captures uh uh You don't uh have to play Rook D1 I mean You can just capture Bishop captures Queen captures Queen captures on H6 and Now Queen G7 let's say you trade queens And now it's uh equal material equal Equal end game uh probably a very quick Draw so instead Queen to G6 that's why Mama Daryl didn't do it uh Rook to F1 And now Bishop captures an E5 finally Grabbing that pawn bishop captures an H6 Rooked the E6 attacking the bishop and The bishop back to F4 we have Rook 8 to E8 mommy jar of doubles up on the E file And Rook to F3 preparing Rook to G3 to Win the black queen so Bishop to G7 Closing of the g-file Rook the G3 and Queen to H7 Uh still uh keeping an end at C2 Pawn uh
Shakira really wants to play Rook D2 and Grab the C2 Pawn so he creates a pass to D pawn and uh of course he wants to push It all the way so Rook to F1 by Arjun uh Rook to E2 attacking the queen and Remarkable as this position is uh you Think black is completely uh crashing Through here white is just better here Look at this queen to A5 And there's a very specific reason why White is better but unfortunately for Arjun he didn't realize it even though They were both uh really well on the Clock they had some like five or six Minutes on the clock each and here Rook Captures in C2 mamidaro grabs the pawn And uh he's now completely lost but it's Not clear why and if it was clear of Course Arjun would play it it's uh uh Not at all clear so feel free to pause The video and win the game for Arjun uh While I give you a couple of seconds Foreign So uh for those of you who were able to Do it congratulations on spotting any of The winning moves like Queen to C7 or Rook to E1 but there is one that makes Black resign instantly and that of Course is Bishop to E5 so if you found This then truly congratulations you are A master of uh spotting incredibly Difficult to moves the spot uh because Now black can just resign there is no Move black can make here you are either
Facing Rook captures on G7 and you're Gonna lose your queen or if you don't Like that you can play something like Let's say Rook characters on E5 and then Just Queen to d8 with check Rook to E8 And queen captures with Checkmate so There is no good way to deal with Bishop To E5 even if you ignore it even if you Play something like Rook to C8 even Bishop captures on G7 is enough and now If Queen captures you can even go for This very nice Queen to E1 you don't Have to capture or you could just Capture Rook captures on G7 King Captures and queen T1 and you have a Queen and Rook for two Rooks so of Course completely winning unfortunately Arjun doesn't find this which is a Really funny for a very specific reason That I will not mention uh so I don't Spoil anything for you but here Arjun Played Queen characters on A7 instead King the HH Shakira realizes that that Bishop should definitely be able to move Queen captures on B7 and now Pawn to D3 He starts advancing his past Pawn King To H2 and the now Bishop to D4 a weird Move I have no idea why shakaria played It and it really makes no sense uh Probably there is a reason why he played It like I said they were they both had Enough time it's not like they had they Had a few seconds on the clock and That's why he played Bishop to D4 I just
Can't figure out why why Play Bishop to D4 it doesn't seem like it's doing all That much but okay uh he probably had Something in mind but Arjun played Queen To C6 and now Rook C the E2 and uh so The position is again completely winning For Arjun but it's not um uh winning Like you'd expect in the previous pause The video moment that there was just Like wow what a move here it's actually A forced Checkmate in three but again You have to really really look hard to Find it uh so feel free to pause the Video for the second time and try to Find your way out of this mess while I Give you a couple of seconds So uh for those of you who are able to Do it congratulations on uh spotting That it is again Bishop to E5 and for Those of you who just want to enjoy the Show yes Bishop to E5 check and this is What Arjun now played and there really Isn't anything you can do here uh Bishop Captures uh because uh well and of Course it was in this position on move 33 that chocolate resigned the game as There is nothing more to be done here a Problem is that if you capture with the Bishop then the the Rooks are no longer Connected basically by playing Bishop to E5 uh you disconnect the two Rooks the Two Rooks are no longer protecting each Other so the real threat is Queen Captures on E8 and if you capture with
The bishop that thread Still Remains Queen captures Queen the G8 Queen Captures and G8 will be Checkmate if you Don't uh capture with the bishop if you Capture with the Rook then the bishop no Longer guards the F6 Square so now Queen F6 check again ends in Checkmate and if The other Rook captures doesn't really Make all that much difference because The bishop still I can't reach the F6 Square Queen F6 check Queen uh G7 and Now Queen captures and G7 will be Checkmate and other than that uh after Bishop to E5 you really have no options Your only other option is to play Pawn To F6 which again leads to Queen Characters on G8 and uh the exact same Checkmate Queen to G8 Queen captures and G8 and this will be Checkmate so Incredible stuff uh it'd be it'd be way Cooler if Arjun uh spotted it the first Time but um he was never really in in Any trouble his position was always Better and he was able to find now Bishop to E5 which is uh also nothing Short of spectacular uh so yeah that's The game hope you guys enjoyed it uh Arjun wins the second game against Chakra mamidara with two wins two draws He wins uh his first match and these are Now the standings after four rounds you Can see that Magnus In first place with 12 points and Yanks Used of Duda was unable to follow Magnus
He lost Who is third with seven points Wesley so With six points Anish girian pregnant With four points and Arjun irregasi and Ashah mamidyarov in seventh and eighth Place with three points so now uh now The clash between Magnus and Duda which Is coming up next I believe uh will be Even more interesting uh as uh Duda Needs to beat Magnus to bounce back if He wants to retain uh uh catch up to Magnuson and uh try and get a lead in The tournament uh so yeah once again Really hope you guys enjoyed it I would Like to thank ravishing reptiles YouTube Harry Barton Mario's Clinic friends Sarah and Carmen uh polyphronio for Contribution to my channel thank you a Lot I really appreciate it as usual you Can check to all my previous videos here Thank you for watching and I will see You soon continuing the coverage of this Wonderful event until it finishes so Thank you all I will see you soon and Have an excellent rest of your day and Once again big congratulations to Everyone who found Bishop T5 it's I mean It's uh it's a spectacular move see you Soon
