8th Gibtelecom Chess Festival, Gibraltar, Tues 26 Jan - Thur 4 Feb 2010


For the first couple of days the weather was wet and stormy with low temperatures (3 dec C) but it cleared and from day three onwards was very much like you would expect to have in the UK in early-mid May. Video (1) is from round 1 of the Masters; video (2) is from the Challenger A section, also round 1.

In the video below you see the start of the game, then the move 17...Nb4, then the section after the queen exchange: from 23...Qxh4 until 29...Nh5. The final section shows Anand resigning after 36...Rd8 37.Nd5 Rb7.


Impressions from day two





Finnish Blitz Championships - Very funny end to the game.



Another crazy but entertaining end to the game.



Nakamura and Dlugy play a 1 minute game - madness!



New meaning to the word 'gamesmanship'.
