World Chess Cup 2011: The Best so far

Live streaming of the games, availability of grandmaster commentary, PGN files for downloads, round by round account of almost every detail of the tournament posted on the official website and so much more. These are the words we can use to describe the World Chess Cup 2011.

From the audience' point of view, it is perfect, the best so far and I haven't said anything about the games yet. Exciting and all the matches and pairing are unpredictable when they are expected to be. The games at this level should be unpredictable and that's how the grandmasters of the game are doing.

Now in round five, there is one player the chess world and its citizens are watching carefully following. Judith Polgar is the only female player in the world cup right now and so far, she has managed to advance and reach the fifth round. Will she be able to get one of the only three precious slots for the World Chess Championship 2014 cycle.    

We are down to the round of eight players and every move made on the board matters and all of us are superbly happy that we can follow the games live and in real-time.

Congratulations to FIDE and the people behind the organization of the tournament. Scroll down to this link and find out who the guys are.

The best world chess cup so far!
