This is a good video.

BTW, Grandmasters Yermolinsky and Ronen-Harzvi said the same thing about Anand's immediate capture on b6-- since black will never go bxc5, white should keep the tension and take at an advantageous moment.

That was an amusing intermission! I think that this might be a new format for the WCC; have them play a regular game, take a few minutes out to play a blitz in the middle of the STC game (which would count for the tie-break if it is needed) then resume the slow game - that way they don't need extra days for a tie-break!

There's a lot of chess coming up soon, the US Ch and all. Are you going to cover any of those games on CV.TV?

Have fun in St. Louis!

QUICK UPDATE: Due to a prior commitment of one of the commentators at the U.S. Championship, I will be co-hosting the broadcast for Round 4. So check it out on Monday to see if I can do an okay job of live commentary.

Cool- I'll look forward to your live commentary.

I also enjoyed the unscheduled break- and also your first live commentary game in a while. Thanks, as always. :)

We'll see what happens but I think Topalov is hungrier.

Broadcasters have a Cough Button to squelch yawns. Button makes mic go dead as long as you hold it down, no superhuman yawn-supressing. :)

Very nice. Loved the interlude. I'll donate some money to your charity of the month as a thank you.

When the inexplicable blitz game starts...funniest moment in any Curtains video ever. Bar none.

Interesting game. The Anand - Topalov one wasn't bad either! Hilarious when the blitz game started up. :D

I don't know if it is for curtains commentaries or for the match itself...but i can't remember me falling in love with a competition that i'm not implied to...
I mean as an Example : I'm italian and we use to consider football (soccer) as the most exiting game/sport and... the struggle in this Anand Vs Topalov it's so over every football match i've seen before...

Anyway Thank you curtains and thank you chessvideos guys

Graize
Domenico

Nice analysis as always and props for not trying to abort the bonus blitz game. :D
