  Penguincw: Here's one site relating to this tournament:
Oct-19-14  jphamlore: Will Anatoly Karpov play a game in the Bundesliga this season?
Oct-19-14  waustad: Thank you <Penguincw> for the link. There is also this one which is of use: which includes some info on the Frauenbundesliga and the Oberliga teams too. A similar site to the one you mention, specifically for the FBL is
Oct-20-14  waustad: Die Zeit has an article on changes that have been made for this season (in German):
Oct-20-14  PhilFeeley: I don't suppose <> could put up a real table of results. It's getting to be that I can't trust any of their tables at all.
Oct-21-14  jphamlore: Why is the Bundesliga so underhyped relative to other chess competitions? Is it the sheer number of games?
Nov-10-14  waustad: It looks like Rapport got lucky in round four. The comp has him dead lost but his opponent accepted a draw.

Mar-13-15  L13: Thank you for the link, <whiteshark>! I don't have a problem finding the games elsewhere, though; I'm just wondering why Chessgames seems to be neglecting such a strong championship.

In any event, there's a new round tomorrow.
