    Hi,

    The plan being you can be our man (or men...or women) on the inside.

    Hopefully I will do a quick blog on every game with our own pictures and background info.

    I am going to the WC match on one or two days greenpawn as I live in the area. Would be chuffed to take pictures or something for a blogging project. I might write something about a few games of the match myself, or the WC in history but could pass along whatever pictures I am allowed to take

    Hi Paul,

    Cheeer up mate, With good behaviour you will out in time for the 2026 Final.
    That will probably be between two Chinese players (very possibly girls).

    I'll photoshop others' photos and invent story as I was on the site. Postmodernistic, mockummentary in the form of feuilleton for imaginary Serbian daily.

    A mock puff piece then. Good luck, maybe you will win the pullet suprise, you know, the castrated chicken award.

    So two important events for the US. The presidency will be decided and the REAL story, Carlsen V Karjakin.

    I noticed there is a Sergei Karjakin rated 2189 and he actually beat Nigel Short! One letter away from a GM.

    Okay, so I was on the spot.
    Without acreditives it was tricky to get in. I had to pretend I am on of the FIDE officials, less known, some delegate from Phillippines. You can see me on the picture.

    In game 1, Carlsen had white pieces. As usual he rubbed his left ankle all the time and had despise on his his face. Karjakin, however, kept his head down as if he was looking for a 5/cent or a contact lense.
    Playees had different chairs. Karjakin a fixed one, all wooden, little squekky I must say, Stalin-like, spartan kind, as if he feel he thinks better if his behind hurts.
    Carlsen's chair resembled Fichers from seventies, rotaing and with cracking sounds, like he chair was stuffed with green dollars.
    Air condition was too loud, I think, and I could notice presence of bald people, obivous agents sent from Putin. They didn't move their eyes from Carlsen, and he felt uncomfortable with that.
    I assume he is going to file an official complain tomorrow.
    Game itself was however boring, a warming draw.

    Imo chess24.com is doing best at relaying moves after a rocky start.
