    Hi there
    I am working in Bonn for now and want to visit all of the games
    from the world championship Kramnik-Anand here.
    The organizer said, its no problem, if i want to report live from there
    here in the forum. Ok, they allowed only 30 minutes delay for the moves.

    I want to report (nearly) all the games live here in the forum.
    My problem is my bad english. I would like to write in german.
    Is here anybody, who could translate for me?

    Please PM me!

    Ich kann übersetzen, es ist bloss eine Frage ob ich die Zeit dazu habe. Was würde das mit sich bringen? (Übrigens Ihr Englisch kommt mir gar nicht so schlecht vor!)

    Thank you all!
    Especially for Robby, but I think Hindi will not be necessary ;-)
    Ok, I will try to write in my disputable english and hope,
    that most people will understand me!

    Actually I was already in Heathrow at the time you wrote your post.

    afx, I agree with Northern Lad that your English doesn't sound so bad, so it's probably the easiest solution that you write in English. I wouldn't mind translating, but I probably wouldn't always be able to be online during the games, so that there would be a delay. (It's also unlikely that I'll still be alive in 2088. )

    I think a better idea would be to ask for someone who will check your English, and correct them via message. Your English looks OK enough for this to end up with a successful report.
