The 2021 Meltwater Champions Chess Tour Finals is a 10-player round-robin taking place from September 25 to October 4 on chess24, with World Champion Magnus Carlsen, World Cup winner Jan-Krzysztof Duda and Dutch no. 1 Anish Giri playing from a venue in Oslo. The players start with bonus points based on their performance over the $1.6 million tour so far and then play a match each day for a maximum of 3 points. The top scorer after 9 rounds wins $100,000 and is crowned the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour champion.
Each match features four rapid games with a time control of 15 minutes for all moves plus a 10-second increment added each move. The winner gets 3 points and the loser 0. If tied 2:2, then a blitz playoff is played, with two games where the players have 5 minutes and a 3-second increment. If still tied they play a single Armageddon game, where White has 5 minutes to Black’s 4, but a draw counts as a win for Black. The winner after a playoff gets 2 points, the loser 1.

That game shows again... Magnus is not just a player. He's an artist. Beautiful game

imagine showing this game with all its piece coordination to a romantic era champion like Morphy or Anderssen, and then letting them know it was played at blitz controls. Magnus gives a masterclass at impossible speed

This game was so phenomenal the Queen's value got nerfed from 9 to 8.

One of the things that's so striking about Magnus on defense is how willing he is to play ugly moves when necessary to hold his position together, and somehow untangle later . For a short while it seemed like Giri was piling on the pressure and forcing some concessions and it was hard to see how Magnus would get coordinated. Yet a few moves later Giri's initiative had completely evaporated and his heavy pieces were unable to make a credible threat. And of course that's the quintessential Magnus style, but to see him pull it off against a 2700 in Blitz time control is something else.

That fortress Magnus makes around his king to handle the end game against Queen & Rook is stunning. Magnus is in a league of his own.

I come back to watch this game periodically. Imo its the most beautiful game I've ever seen. Breaks nearly every rule that I am aware of in chess and still wins.

Magnus is unreal at chess. The way he coordinates attacks/defense is out of this world.

When the players are leaning forward you can just feel their confidence. And then Giri sinks back into his chair. Solid game.

What an amazing endgame, not a single misstep. Magnus makes it look effortless and inevitable, the unstoppable force of chess.

One of the best games I've ever seen. Impenetrable defense being played by Magnus in the later half.

Perhaps this is the greatest game I've wacthed live in chess24 in my entire life. In this era, it's really hard to play like Michail Tal. But Magnus just gave us very entertining show there

Years from now magnus and his strategy will be deeply studied. He may even end up teaching the next world champion, just like how he was taught

Absolutely unbelievable game. One of the all time greats.

I love this game, I'm mind blown by the fact that it breaks so many opening principles and yet two of them still stand: king safety and piece coordination. At the end of the day these two are the only thing that matter in chess. All the goats (Morphy, Tal, Fisher, Kasparov, Anand and Carlsen) know/knew that, it's incredible to watch

In this beautiful game we can use the quote: “A good defense is also a way to attack” , this man is out of this world.

It seemed to me at the end that Magnus defensive moves also attacked and his attacking moves also defended. How did he do that? Way above my pay grade.

This was defintiely one of the better games I have seen in a while. Queen sacrifices which are equal in material AREN'T bad but it's always a mental danger to do at such high level as 3 pieces can easier make a mistake than 1 piece. Yet, MC has the confidence (and ability of course) to do it at this level and hence why it looks so nice. Very well played! :p
