  1. Suggestion: rename the FIDE Circuit to FIDE Circus.

  2. alogaritm on 5 turnements best performance

  3. It shouldn't be called the FIDE circuit at this point, it should simply be called the FIDE circus.

  4. FIDE, FIFA = we reserve the right to pretend that there is a fair process being monitored on our watch, while we exercise our arbitrary discretion and skim off a cut for doing so. That's "sport".

  5. You know how they say there's too much money in (men's) soccer and that ruins the game? I'd never thought I'd think the same thing about chess one day.

  6. US Fencing has this rule that says in order for a tournament to be sanctioned by USFA, it needs to be posted on a public site at least 30 days before it actually takes place (at least in some divisions). And only in sanctioned events can people earn ratings.

  7. isn't the whole invite system a little weird? for example, theoretically a player could be boycotted and not invited anywhere, and some players could farm rating like firouzja [because they only invited overrated (not in a negative way ig) veterans]. the invite system is very prone to rating manipulation / resource inequality.

    is there a reason why tournaments invites aren't just based on rating cutoffs / other obvious qualifications? (and posted a month or so in advance on some official fide website) and if too many people sign up, just pick top x by rating

  8. No spot should be opened to the best rating farmer. I think Kramnik agree xD

  9. folks give some charity "rating" work this season.

  10. FIDE should follow his own rules. Gukesh and Feruja made it.

    Magnus's claim is a joke. blitz should be not counted at all when we consider WCh matches.
    I think If a WCh match equal the higher ELO rated player should be crowned, no blitz and rapid can count.

  11. Hi Levi! Knowing that you speak and understand Russian you may be interested in a short exchange in Samarkand between Arkady Dvorkovich and Anish about these tournaments you mentioned, captured by Chessbase India. It is in this video at around 1:30

  12. Much ado about nothing. LOL This is just clickbait and the host should be ashamed of himself.

  13. The more chess become enterainment driven, as it is quickly becoming, the less it will depend on fairness and skill and more it will take on the values of the entertainment business. Money will quickly become more important than skill and the most veiws. Chess will become the WWF

  14. Chess tournaments late in the year should not be allowed to be held in the countries
    to make the citizens of the countries qualify.

    Tournaments should be declared early of the year.

    You cant just announce a tournament Dec 11 or hold a tournament inorder for a candidate to qualify.

  15. I agree with you, Levy!!! This is drama and doesn't seem to be fair to everyone…

  16. How about you give a solution rather than pointing to problems

  17. 2023 Laws of Chess:
    0.2 A necessary condition for a game to be rated by FIDE is that it shall be played according to the FIDE Laws of Chess.
    11.1 The players shall take no action that will bring the game of chess into disrepute.

    Taking part in a fake tournament to transfer points can be considered as a act that brings the game of chess into disrepute.
    So it all depends on did they play to win.

  18. 22:26 Magnus parody twitter account has a verified profile, Magnus real profile doesn't. What a joke Twitter has become

  19. I had a lol moment at 15:11 when I saw 'The Alireza Firouja Race to Candidates' round robin and him taking 5 points. But you can't blame him for that, it's like Levi said, 'don't hate the player, hate the game'. You see players in all sports worldwide use whatever loophole possible to eke out a marginal's competition…it's how sport evolves.

  20. What does he mean about what happened this year that means the USCF shouldn't be able to ask for anything?

  21. Just a typical america crying on the internet, everything is fair when america does it, but it isn't when others do it. haha Alireza played the rules, well played.

  22. Clickbait bull crap. Here to just kill your watch percentage.
