    I heard about this also from Dennis Monokroupololouslsos' s (obviously a spelling joke/error---> Damn Greeks!) blog. I think Karpov is in too.

    I heard that they will be playing "Fischer random chess", so who cares.

    You have to be kidding me. Who cares? It makes me care all the more as I feel it's more a show of true chess skill, and less a show of who has left fritz running the longest in a given opening.

    Well, the information concerning the type of chess to be played is a little confusing. Mig Greengard is now reporting that it will be straight rapids rather than shuffle chess.
