    It's started and already it looks more exciting than the other two games.

    Remember we cannot discuss games in progress.

    I realise we can't discuss the game, but surely Black must offer the draw here asap?

    Shredder has this as +0.36, so clearly Black is already well behind (see RJ Hinds, Why the Sicilian Defence doesn't work)

    If that had been the other Anand - Carlsen then a draw would have been offered before that sat down.

    But these RHP guys are fighters. I'm looking forward to an interesting game.
    I've been staring at the screen for 4 hours now and nothing has happened.
    Has the RHP live feed to this game broken down. (again).

    Wait....

    Home preparation in full swing!

    Good Prep.
    I don't think this set of opening moves have figured in a World Championship game before.

    I must say this does look exciting.



    If this ends in a draw, I'm giving up chess. For woozle hunting maybe. And Nearly Catching It.

    Yes Indeed.

    Some of us should add a game link Game 10309218 every now and then
    so we can keep up with the moves.

    magnus9999 has a rating of 998. Is this a rounding error ?

    It's a Y2K bug that Russ can't figure out how to fix.

    This is not good news for Woozles. vishyanand has drawn 28/243. It's 10-1 the Woozle gets it.

    Move 8 and we have tactical contact.
    That means something is attacking something on the board.

    Read somewhere that the sharp players, Tal, Alekhine, Kasparov, Fischer....
    liked to have tactical contact very early in the game.

    The game we cannot talk about is hotting up.

    The threat is......(censored.....Russ)
