Goldchess Take on Carlsen-Karjakin

What happens when a strong GM decides to have fun over a game of chess, letting his imagination roam free, possibly fuelled by a glass of French wine and fine English cheese?

Goldchess is the place to go when having such thoughts. As you already know, they offer various positions, often from famous games (here’s their take on Anand-Gelfand from 2012) and reward lavishly the best efforts.

What follows is a flight of imagination, I see a relaxed atmosphere in a friendly place, a game between good friends with a lot of laughter and a time well spent. Perhaps set in a Shakespearean Midsummer.

That’s what seeing games like the one below remind me of. That chess is not always the gruelling fight to win points and rating, the constant preparation and will to win. Chess can be relaxing and fun, stress-free and pleasant.

Playing white is the strong Polish GM Artur Jakubiec and he takes on Goldchess’s computer in a brutal tour de force. Take a look at the game and let yourself drift away.
