Chess960 Titled Arena Returns

Chess960 Returns!

Given how well received the previous Chess960 Titled Arena was, we're bringing it back for round 2. As with last time, the control will be 2 minutes + 1 second increment to give everyone a chance to get used to the unfamiliar positions. The tournament duration will also be 3 hours, and thanks to the donation of last month's first place prize we have a bumped prize pool of $1500!

This event will also be preceded by a Chess960 Warm-up Arena, open to all players with a minimum of 10 rated Chess960 games.

Shaking Things Up in the Chess960 Titled Arena

960 times the positions, 960 times the fun

Over a year since the inaugural Titled Arena, we decided to mix things up with our first ever Titled Arena in Chess960. Chess960 is a chess variant where the back rank pieces for both sides can start in any of 960 different combinations - throwing opening theory out of the window and leading to some extremely sharp (and sometimes peculiar) positions right from the off! A total of 4 of the 2649 games played started from the standard position, but the majority of course were unknown territory. As such, it was only fair to increase the time control to the sedentary pace of 2+1 - but this didn't deter some competitors who proceeded with berserk rates of over 70%. An interesting effect of the time control was that we saw far more berserking than 1+0, despite the loss of increment making it theoretically an even more berserk decision! We don't yet have the statistics in on if the number of computer mice broken in a rage was reduced as a result, but we hope so.

The event started with many players balanced out of the gate - taking longer to string the wins together. Mystery GM Watneg took an early lead, stringing an impressive 8 wins together. Meanwhile, Magnus managed to cling on for a win on time while down a full rook, but then failed (just) to do the impossible again after getting his Queen trapped 4 moves in against IM MeneerMandje - losing 113 rating points in the process. GM Watneg and IM opperwezen continued to trade places in 1st and 2nd over the next half hour, with the latter taking the victory in their first meeting.
I know, I know, there was some more attractive match of Duchamp in art history (if you remember the photo)


Marcel Duchamp was really a very good chess player

Remarkable performance.. particular.
Not really my genre, but particular.

Yes, for me, too, there is an evident allusion to Duchamp.

OT: Impressive the sound system

Interesting how creativity works...

Bonus Titled Arena: Chess960!

The Lichess Titled Arena meets Chess960!

Due to the recent gain in popularity of the Chess960 (or Fischer Random) variant, we're hosting a bonus Titled Arena: Chess960 Edition! The Titled Arenas has become among the world's strongest Bullet tournaments, and we're proud to now also offer a high quality Chess960 tournament to our players (actually, we announced it in a series of mysterious tweets a couple of weeks ago).

Many of you have also requested a longer time control during these titled events, so we're trying 2 minutes + 1 second increment this time. Moreover, to ensure that each player will get enough games with this longer time control, we're increasing the tournament duration from the usual 2 hours to 3!

Hungry Hungry Magnus Wins Another Chicken Dinner

New month, new Titled Arena, same Magnus Carlsen.

Magnus Carlsen has started the new year strong, winning every single tournament he has entered thus far. This version of the prestigious titled arena, more commonly known as the bullet World Championship, was no exception. The number one got off to a flying start winning nine out of his first ten games, before disappearing mysteriously. The internet searched everywhere without any results. For ten whole minutes the world stood still. Was this how the world was gonna end?

Thanks to the channel Xadrez Brasil I discovered this amazing player:
Henrique Mecking - Wikipedia


Henrique Costa Mecking (born 23 January 1952), also known as Mequinho, is a Brazilian chess grandmaster who reached his zenith in the 1970s and is still one of the strongest players in Brazil. He was a chess prodigy,[2] drawing comparisons to Bobby Fischer, although he did not achieve the International Grandmaster title until 1972. He won the Inter...

New Month, New Titled Arena

Our 11th Titled Arena takes place on the 9th of February, 19:00 UTC.

Just as one of the strongest classical tournaments, Tata Steel Chess, settles, we announce another edition of the world's strongest Bullet tournament. Last month’s Titled Arena broke a new record both in number of participants and number of online players (42,291). Let's break it again!

As usual, the tournament will be preceded by a Warm-up Arena, open to all players with a minimum of 20 rated bullet games.

The local elementary school, named after Emanuel Lasker, is the only public school in Germany which teaches chess as part of the curriculum, and it had done so since 1823; just as the Ströbeck secondary school, which was closed in 2004, due to too few pupils.

Too Strong, Too Fast: Carlsen Rides Again in the Lichess Titled Arena

Too Strong, Too Fast: Magnus wins his Seventh Titled Arena

In stark contrast to last December's photo finish, Magnus Carlsen (DrNykterstein) cruised to victory in the January Lichess Titled Arena. The World Champion finished 56 points ahead of a field of over forty Grandmasters, seventy International Masters, and a server that only through the valiant efforts of Lichess's volunteer staff survived a record 42,291 online players. In second place was the Ukranian Grandmaster Oleksandr Bortnyk (Night-King96), and in third one of Magnus's trickiest rivals in previous arenas, the wily anonymous International Master lodewijkfrederik. To give a sense of Carlsen's dominance, after his "customary" first round loss he dropped only three out of his next 58 games (minus one from technical difficulties), and at one point managed to put together a mind boggling 22 game win streak against the best online bullet players in the world.

Lichess End of Year Update 2018

Onward and upward!

It’s been a huge year for Lichess, with a record number of events and a massive increase in users. In fact, there has been so much growth that we finally had to add an extra front-end server to cope! Lichess is not just growing in numbers, though – the hard work of our developers has brought about many new features and technical improvements. We’ve also expanded into new areas, including some forays into journalism and a string of special events. Please join us in celebrating the achievements of the year and looking forward to what the next one will bring!
