WCC 2013 was Amazing

Apr 3, 2013, 7:00 AM |

I followed the Candidates tourney this year pretty closely. How exciting! I am very glad Carlsen won. At the end I was on the edge of my seat. My only regret was that I had no one to talk to about this is person. I'm definitely the only dork in my world strange enough to follow a chess tournament. Ha. Except for my brother who is a candidate master. I can discuss these things with him a little.

I am not good enough to see a position in a tourney like this and see if its lost. I can follow the line when I see it and appreciate a cool tactic or some of the positional elements. I relied heavily on websites.

A few of the ones I used:

The official fide.com site.

Chessgames.com broadcasted the top live game. This site was often the only one that didn't crash during the game. The fide site was useless very often because it kept coming down

2700chess.com/live showed all 4 live games but did crash on the final day

Chessbomb.com this site is amazing. I am going to post about it later.
