Chess960 - Wesley So vs Tomashevsky | Fischer Random Chess 2019 Qualifiers

Title: Chess960 - Wesley So vs Tomashevsky | Fischer Random Chess 2019 Qualifiers

Hello Chess Friends and Welcome to The Channel. In today's video we will talk about Chess960 or Fischer Random Chess.

This year, for the first time in history, we will have a formal world championship tournament for this chess variant invented by Bobby Fischer and announced in 1996. Yesterday Wesley So qualified for the quarterfinals that will begin on October 4th.

Before watching his game against Evgeny Tomashevsky, let's briefly recap the major Fischer Random CHESS RULES.

For the starting position there are only two simple rules: The white king is placed somewhere between the two white rooks. The white bishops are placed on opposite-colored squares. Fischer random chess allows each player to castle once per game. After castling, the rook and king's final positions are exactly the same positions as they would be in standard chess. However, castling may only occur under the following conditions. King and Rook Unmoved, King not under check, All the squares between the king's initial and final squares are not under attack. No pieces between King and rook. The finalsquares of the king and the rook must be vacant.


Now Let's start with a quick analysis of the starting position. It seems easier to castle long than short, so both players must pay attention not to advance too much the queenside pawns if they like to castle long. Second thing to notice. In classical chess, the goal of the opening is to conquer the center and activate the pieces as soon as possible. It seems to me that in fischer random those two goals are still the most important but, activating the pieces is even more important than conquering the center. Let's watch the moves that stockfish suggests to the white player to properly open the game: e4, a4 and c3 to activate the queen, f3 and f4. Ng3. Now it's time to watch the game together. Wesley So with White against Tomashevsky with a rating of 2718 with Black.


1. e4 {controlling the center and opening the diagonal for the light square
bishop} e5 2. f3 f6 3. Ng3 Ng6 4. c3 Ne6 5. d4 c6 (5... exd4 6. cxd4 Bf7 7. Qc2
{the center is in white's hands and the c-file is open with a little advantage
for white but Black will probably castle short}) 6. Qc2 Qc7 7. dxe5 Nxe5 8. Ne3
O-O-O 9. O-O-O Bc5 10. Ngf5 d6 11. Kb1 Kb8 12. Bf2 g6 {an inaccurancy} (12...
Bf7) 13. Nh6 Bb6 14. Bg3 Nc5 15. f4 Nf7 16. Nxg8 {the bishop pair is gone} Rxg8
17. Nc4 {also the second bishop is lost and if Wesley So will be able to open
the position, it will be a win for white} Rge8 18. b4 Ne6 19. Qb3 {White is
better. What to play as Black? Now Ng7 and then double the rooks on the e-file
could be an idea} Qe7 20. Nxb6 axb6 21. a4 g5 22. Bf2 gxf4 23. Bxb6 Nc7 24. b5
Ne5 25. Qb4 Qf7 {prevents at least for now Qa5} 26. Kb2 (26. Qa5 Qb3+) 26... d5
27. Qa5 Kc8 28. g3 {not a bad move but Bxc7 is better} (28. Bxc7 Qxc7 29. b6
Qd6 {leaving d7 to the King} 30. g3 fxg3 31. Bh3+ {wins the exchange} Rd7)
28... dxe4 {a mistake} 29. Bxc7 Rxd1 30. Rxd1 Nd3+ (30... Qxc7 31. b6 Qb8 32.
Bh3+ Nd7 33. Bxd7+ Kd8 34. Qc5 Re7 35. Bxc6+ Kc8 36. Qf5+ Rd7 37. Qxd7#) 31.
Bxd3 exd3 32. Bxf4 {White is a piece up and Black resigns.} 1-0

Aronian beats Nakamura in Chess 960 and Naka gets upset

Levon Aronian ended day 1 of Champions Showdown with a score of 3.5-0.5 against Hikaru Nakamura. In round 2, Aronian defeated Nakamura in a winning rook endgame. Nakamura got up from his chair before resigning and then said something to Aronian before leaving the playing arena. What did Nakamura say to Aronian before leaving? We will leave it up to you to figure it out.
