A blog mainly devoted to chess.
These grandmaster draws are shameful.
Agreed, but at least Gelfand's 9...b5 novelty was very nice.
from Chessbase:...GM Elshan Moradiabadi, lined up for the game, and though we were going to dispense his services, he beat us to it, “Look, I made up my decision. I am not going to do any commentary on Chessbase unless the games are played under Sofia rules (meaning no quick draws).” Very unhappy with the last couple of games, he added, “The match is disgusting. I think this is one reason why chess is losing sponsors. Have you ever seen a sports event that ended precisely when the heat was at its highest?”
