The Heavy Hitters Are Here! Magnus v Wesley & DenLaz v MVL Headline Day 1 | Chessable Masters 2024

The 2024 Chessable Masters is the first of four events preceding the Champions Chess Tour live Finals. The winner of the event pockets $30,000 and guarantees a spot at the CCT Finals. Carlsen, Vachier-Lagrave and Fedoseev have already earned spots in the Chessable Masters Division I based on their performance in 2023’s last CCT event!


The 2024 Champions Chess Tour (CCT) is’s most important event series of the year with the overall winner being crowned Tour Champion, the highest annual honor conferred by the world’s largest chess platform. New for 2024, each regular season event has had its prize pool increased from $235,000 last year to $300,000โ€”the largest ever offered for CCT events outside the Tour Finals. The pool for the Tour Finals remains $500,000 making the total available on the Tour a cool $1.7 million. Also new for 2024, the time control for every stage will be 10+2.

  1. So have they lost all sponsers?… Just last year they were boasting about the studio and all… And that was good

  2. It feels like Wesley So do not belong in the candidates for a long time.

  3. Tanya is the PERFECT commentator/hostess for this format. She always keeps up the energy, conveys a lot of excitement for the game, and is enthusiastic about what she's seeing. Great find, guys.

  4. Miss the old format with the studio — made these events feel special and more fun to watch. Still, great commentary

  5. its really interesting how jospem played so well against everyone in the swiss but played damn poorly against naka just check his results against other top players and naka. I know naka is a better player but the fact is jospem always loses to him no matter the format and he crushes other super gms effortlessly

  6. I would like to see Martinez play OTB, the guy is so talented. He could be world champion with this play.

  7. I'll be back to bed at dawn with this board on without a lazy susanne under it.

  8. some chatter wrote "what's nepo going to blame it on today" lmao

  9. If you had a rating point for every time Jose Martinez stole a quik glance to the side, you'd be a totally legitimate top 5 online player, too.

  10. Nakamura: "this is the beginning of the end"

  11. "The only disappointment with jospem Lazavik is that there can only be one winner" (MVL)

  12. I think the only way to partly prevent cheating in online tournaments is to require that all players have full room cameras that are monitored (no second devices, no phones etc., though of course someone could still have a basic vibration device that conveys the moves in morse code or something, but the aim is to make it as difficult as possible to cheat), disallowing headphones, and have the players show their ears to those monitoring every time they enter the room.

  13. Terrible production quality compared with previous events. As a lay person fan of the CCT since Covid I'm now losing interest. Without a studio and real characters interacting face to face it's just not that entertaining anymore. Sadly I think you lost me as a viewer ๐Ÿ˜ข

  14. Is there a way I could watch a full match somewhere?

  15. They should take a closer look at Joses games, just to make sure

  16. I think David thought something was going on.. he continued to repeat โ€œit seems as if jospem has always a reply up his sleeveโ€

  17. Jospem is so talented. If he played more OTB, he would easily be top 5.

  18. I just love how chess players would destroy a bottle of water after a tence match as if they just ran a marathon ๐Ÿ™ƒ

  19. I hate chess monopolies, the old format in the room was so cool. This is so sad. Kudos to Jospem, he is the goat.
