Welcome to the January edition of One Move at a Time and Happy New Year! Our guest today is David Llada, joining us via Skype from San Sebastian, Spain. David was our April 2021 guest, but I decided to interview him again focusing only on his behind-the-scenes work for the recently completed World Championship during with Magnus Carlsen successfully defended his title against Ian Nepomniachtchi. David's photos have often appeared in Chess Life and he has taken chess photos around the world. He has a book of his photos called, The Thinkers that you can purchase from US Chess Sales at uscfsales.com. In addition to journalism, David has been involved in the organizational side of Chess; being part of various organizational committees and frequently taking on the role of Chief Press Officer. With a background in journalism, public relations, online marketing and social media coupled with an extensive chess experience, he was a natural to become FIDE's Chief Marketing and Communications Officer. To give an idea of what David was going through behind the scenes, here is his Facebook post from November 18: "This afternoon I fell asleep on my laptop. Woke up 2,5 hours later with my face on the keyboard. Missed an appointment for dinner and I had nearly a hundred emails and whatsapp messages awaiting an answer. Yet I am enjoying the experience. I never thought I would organize a world championship match. Next best thing to playing in one, I guess." Here is a gallery of World Championship behind-the-scenes images from Llada's Facebook page: https://new.uschess.org/news/one-move-time-january-edition-david-llada

Store deler av Norges befolkning følger med på dette hvert eneste år. Faktisk sendes hele sjakk verdensmesterskapet på NRK, riksdekkende TV, med ekspertkommentatorer og produksjonskvalitet som om det skulle vært en fotballkamp. Hva er grunnen til det? Hvorfor følger så mange i Norge med på sjakk VM? Hvorfor er sjakk så stort i Norge? Vel, det har ikke alltid vært det. Faktisk er det et ganske nytt fenomen. Grunnen er at verdens beste sjakkspiller heter Magnus Carlsen og kommer fra Norge. I dag er Magnus Carlsen verdens beste sjakkspiller. Han har vært verdens høyeste rangerte sjakkspiller siden 2011 med toppnoteringen 2882 som er den høyeste rangeringen i historien. Alireza er rangert som nummer to for øyeblikket med 2804 i rating. I 2011, da Carlen blei den høyest rangerte spilleren, var han bare 21 år gammel. Han blei første gang verdensmester i sjakk i 2013 da han slo den daværende regjerende mesteren Viswanathan Anand fra India. I 2014 vant Magnus Carlsen igjen verdensmesterskapet i langsjakk mot Anand, og samme år vant han også VM i hurtigsjakk og lynsjakk. Med det blei han den første i historien til å vinne alle mesterskapene samme år. Carlsen er altså en svært god sjakkspiller. Kanskje den beste gjennom tidende. Selv om Magnus Carlsen er ung, han er født i 1990, så har han lenge vært blant verdens beste sjakkspillere. Han lærte sjakk som seksåring, men begynte først å spille mye som åtteåring. Det blei tidlig klart at Carlsen hadde noe spesielt. Han var et sjakktalent utenom det vanlige. I 2004 fikk han sitt gjennombrudd som 13-åring i sjakkturneringa Wijk aan Zee i Nederland i C-gruppa. Her spilte han et vakkert offerparti mot stormesteren Sipke Ernst. Carlsen spilte vakkert; han ofra viktige brikker for å få en fordel i stillingen. Det gjorde til slutt at han vant. Seieren gjorde at Carlsen blei kalt for «Sjakkens Mozart» og han blei hylla av sjakkverden. Et halvt år seinere blei Carlsen utnevnt av FIDE, verdens sjakkforbund, som den da yngste stormesteren i verden. Sergej Karjakin hadde derimot blitt stormester i en alder av 12 år, så Carlsen var ikke den yngste i historien.

Jóhanna Vigdís Hjaltadóttir þingfréttamaður fór yfir vikuna sem er að líða á Alþingi. Svo sem fjárlagafrumvarpið sem væntanlega verður ekki afgreitt fyrr en undir lok árs. Kristján Sigurjónsson, ritstjóri Túrista, segir að búið sé að opna skíðasvæði víða í Evrópu og miðað við sóttvarnareglur geta bólusettir skíðað í Austurríki, Sviss, Ítalíu og Frakklandi. Nauðsynlegt er að hafa grímu við hendina því það er grímuskylda á skíðasvæðum nema í brekkunum. Gunnar Björnsson, forseti Skáksambands Íslands, fór yfir stöðuna á heimsmeistaramótinu í Dúbaí en allt bendir til þess að Norðmaðurinn Magnús Carlsen verði heimsmeistari í skák árið 2021. Ef það verður að veruleika verður það í fimmta skiptið en undanfarin tíu ár hefur hann verið stigahæsti skákmaðurinn í heiminum. Næsta skák verður telfd í dag og ef Magnús fer með sigur af hólmi þá er einvíginu lokið með sigri hans. Magnús spáir jafntefli í skák Magnúsar Carlsen og Rússans Jans Nepomniactchis í dag. Gunnar greindi frá því í þættinum að heimsmeistaramótið í Fischer-slembi­skák fari fram hér á landi haustið 2022 og er það í minningu einvígi allra tíma þegar Bobby Fischer og Boris Spasský áttust við í Laugardalshöll árið 1972. Magnus Carlsen hefur tekið vel í að koma hingað til lands og taka þátt. Fischer-slembiskák er kennt við Bobby Fischer. Fischer hafði áhyggjur af því að búið væri að rannsaka hina hefðbundnu skák um of og bjó því til nýtt afbrigði. Það virkar þannig að þungu mönnunum er raðað á tilviljanakenndan hátt fyrir aftan peðin en þegar leikar hefjast gilda almennar skákreglur.

Tai Pruce-Zimmerman (@chessnumbers), also known as "Chess by the Numbers", has been running a chess blog for many years. Fueled by statistical analysis and intense attention to trends in the chess world, he has reported about everything from the rise of chess prodigies to probabilities of tournament results. His work has also fueled a lot of the discussion that I've had about certain storylines in top-flight chess. With the World Chess Championship just days away and with a certain teenager capturing headlines Internationally for his dramatic climb to the top of the chess world, I thought it would be a great time to bring Chess by the Numbers on my show to talk Alireza, Magnus, and statistics. We got into a lot of interesting side discussions about rating inflation and many different sports. This episode really got me excited for the future of chess, and I hope it gets you pumped too! If you like what you've heard this week and want to support my podcast financially, you can subscribe to my Patreon for as little as $1 a month! We talked about...Move over, Magnus! The Alireza effect is in full swing. We do a deep dive into Alireza Firouzja's phenomenal 2021, pondering Alireza as prodigy, as elite player, and as possible heir to the throne. Tai talks about following Firouzja's journey since February 2015 (on his "Prodigy Watch" feature of his chess blog) and how beating Magnus Carlsen's record of youngest 2800 feels like "full circle" A beginner's guide to rating inflation, the 2800 club, and on Magnus Carlsen's "plateau" at 2850 eloA little World Chess Championship talk -- for more, see Tai's episode with the Perpetual Chess Podcast, released recently Could Firouzja be the first player to take the #2 spot from Magnus in the classical ratings list?

My guest for Part 2 of the World Chess Championship preview is chess blogger Tai Pruce Zimmerman. Tai is an accountant by training, who created the excellent Chess by the Numbers blog to write about elite chess from a statistical perspective. With the World Championship just days away, I was excited to have the opportunity to ask Tai to walk us through various scenarios in the upcoming showdown between GMs Magnus Carlsen and Ian Nepomniatchtchi. We tackled questions such as the following:  Based on rating, how likely is Magnus to win? How likely are we to see tiebreaks? Would Magnus be as big a favorite if the match were to go to rapid tiebreaks? How likely would it be that one player “adopt” another? We take on all of these questions and more, as Tai describes how his model is made and tells all of the numbers we need to know for the match.

FM Michiel Abeln is a chess author, best known for his critically acclaimed book "The Anand Files" which details the games and stories surrounding Viswanathan Anand's three World Championship titles. Michiel has recently published a Chessable course on the Leningrad Dutch, a dynamic response to 1.d4 which is aimed towards adult improvers.Long-time listeners know that I adore "The Anand Files". It is a unique book; part game collection, part journalism, part narrative storytelling, painting a vibrant picture of the 15th World Champion and the team that supported him through his World Championship run. With the Carlsen-Nepo match coming up in a few weeks, I also thought it might put the podcast in a World Championship atmosphere. In any case, it was great to pick FM Abeln's brain about chess culture. We talked about...The Leningrad Dutch course -- why he wrote it, what his goals were for the course, and comparing it to other books on the Dutch Quality over quantity -- FM Abeln's work ethic and goal to create flawless chess content. We also touch upon misleading claims re: improvement from publishers and marketers in chessThe Anand Files -- across the episode I ask questions about the creation of the book, such as the interview process with Vishy and his seconds, how he annotated the games, and what he thinks about the project now that it's available for purchase. I basically just raved about the book and asked all the questions I've wanted to know while I continue reading the book. If you own the book, this might be especially fun for you, and if you don't, consider it a sneak peek :)World Championship dynamics -- how do teams form for a player? What is the hierarchy between the champion/challenger and his seconds? How does a coach give advice to a player like Magnus Carlsen or Vishy Anand? Magnus vs. Nepo -- given what he knows about World Chess Championship matches, what does FM Abeln think about the upcoming match later this month? Does Nepo have any chances to usurp the throne? What can we expect from the match in terms of strategy game-by-game?Vishy's legacy -- is Viswanathan Anand underestimated as a chess player, at least outside India?
