What Do You Think of Short Matches Like Hikaru Nakamura and David Navara Are Playing?

  • They're great! The chess world should have more.
  • If there's no tournament or title at stake, I don't see the point.
  • I like when they feature compelling themes, like old versus young, etc.
  • I follow them, but they will always take a backseat to an organized tournament.
  • I have the money to host one now!
  • I didn't even know these two were playing a match right now!
