World Championship Match Question

They play on an electronic board, so why do they have to kepp track of moves on paper??!!

Thanks

McHeath

Electronics have been known to succumb to various illnesses ... did you see the 4th game live, where a major blunder by Anand in the endgame was electronically relayed to the whole world, a bright red move and an immediate value of -9.5 for him? He hadn´t played it.

I guess notating your games is something that will eventually go, maybe 20 years, maybe 100 years......

huh, wow thats interesting McHeath, I didn't hear about that, here in Australia, It starts at 7:30, so i can't watch the full game if I hope to make school the next day, so I hear about the results online. Thanks!!

McHeath

It was this move, 59.Rb8 (wrong) instead of 59.Ra8+. The chat rooms exploded ... I´m not sure why it´s so catastrophic, can anyone help? (Annotations by Mark Crowther/The Week In Chess)
