|Dec-18-13|| ||notyetagm: SportAccord World Mind Games (Men, Basque) (2013)|
Karjakin kicked ass in this format: a 2-point lead(!!) over second place!
|Dec-18-13|| ||notyetagm: And by the way, first!|
|Dec-18-13|| ||Mr. President: <first> http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7416/...|
|Dec-21-13|| ||Sihlous: That really is an incredible performance...Especially over this field...Always happy to see Karjakin do well.|
|Dec-21-13|| ||RedShield: I associate basques with Barcelona and Madonna. What have they to do with chess?|
|Dec-21-13|| ||Valmy: <redshield> If you associate Basques with Barcelona, then you should review your geography.|
|Dec-21-13|| ||RedShield: Oh wait a minute, they're Catalans, aren't they? Make that Athletic Bilbao.|
|Dec-21-13|| ||RedShield: <On Tuesday and Wednesday, the last two days of the World Mind Games' chess events, the players entered a new discipline at this event: the “Basque System”, named after a tournament held in San Sebastian two year ago. It's like playing rapid chess but with the opponents playing two games simultaneously. According to the official website, this remarkable system created a lot of tense an interesting situations, “especially when both players where in timetrouble, on both boards”.|
On Facebook GM Emil Sutovsky started a discussion about this.
“I can not recall a single high-quality game played in either London / Beijing - in fact, the vast majority of them were decided by the inexplicable blunders. The winners are, as always, deserving. But I am talking purely about chess content and chess value. And I also feel that the public was not following the events as closely, as it would be with a classical format. But maybe these are just my feelings? What do you think? Did you like it fast? Was there a real SHOW, which compensated for a real CHESS? Your feedback is important, please cast your opinion.”>

And anyone who associates basques with anything other that underwear should give up chess.
