  Edmontonchessclub: Rapid games. In Canada, we call them "Active games". Sorry for any confusion.

  Edmontonchessclub: And no, these games aren't rated.
Oct-31-11  Beholder: These are just barely rapid controls, bordering on blitz. 15+0 is officially considered blitz, and here they have 15+3.

Normal rapids are something like 20+10 or 30+0.

Oct-31-11  Aspat: Anand won the first game. How many games are there?
Oct-31-11  Aspat: Thanks for sharing the link <Bobby>
Oct-31-11  anandrulez: I dont see the first game , is the second game starting now ?
Oct-31-11  WiseWizard: Any news on the second game? We're still in the stone age of Chess.
Oct-31-11  Mr. Bojangles: Talking of chess coverage, Tal memorial is really the creme de la creme, the zenith, the platinum of chess coverage.

We are talking 7 hours of blow by blow coverage from different camera angles with commentary every day!

As if that isnt enough, u can still watch the videos long after the tournament has finished.

Players have also spoken about the luxurious venue and hospitality.

Tal Memo could well be the best organised tournament in the world right now.

Oct-31-11  himadri: the second game has started look at bobbys link
Oct-31-11  bronkenstein: <Tal Memo could well be the best organised tournament in the world right now.> The strongest field of the year for sure.

PS In my dreams, Shipov is doing live comments this time =)

I even like the still photo shots a lot

Oct-31-11  himadri: Anand won the second game, Mamedyarovs king side pawn storm was a little pre-mature I think.
Oct-31-11  bronkenstein: No Sasi-Chepa for 3rd ?!

  Kinghunt: I was following on Playchess.
Oct-31-11  WiseWizard: Anand has a very strong threat of drawing all games and taking the match to rapids.
Oct-31-11  LincolnLog: <WiseWizard> Anand also has a very strong chance of winning all the games and not needing to bother
Oct-31-11  WiseWizard: Nice.
Nov-02-11  M.D. Wilson: Winning.
