    OK, only 1 1/2 hours to go before the game begins...someone needs to wake trysts up now I think...har har

    alexlaw, It is more that just seeing the moves...imagine being there when Kasparov arrived, and seeing him in person for the first time ever...or maybe getting the chance to get his autograph, or even Karpov or other Super-GMs there...it's the stage man...it's being part of history.

                                          GAME NINE

    Good morning! Reading the last few pages has built the excitement today! I expect this game to be a two-cups of tea game. What an esoteric thing it is to be excited about a chess game?Laughing Gelfand has the white pieces today. The match is tied 4 - 4. It must be said that there is no fashion to speak of in this match. I would like to see both gentlemen explore the psychological advantages to changing what you wear during a chess matchWink

    Anand opens with the Nimzo-Indian defence as black.

    The Nimzo! This used to be my favorite defense against D4- maybe I'll be able to follow what's going on for awhile.

    Good morning Trysts!

    All normal lines? White has an isolated queen pawn in return for better development? Is that the theme of this opening?

    The isolated pawn clearly indicates that it's going to be an interesting game, maybe one more classic.

    I guess the good thing for white is that the black bishop can't really join in and attack the white pawn, like it could in a fianchetto system.

    What is the connection of the ducks with the opening?

    Is it somekind of omen?

    I never thought about a duck omen before?
