BundesligaAfter the winter break the 10th and 11th round of the German Schachbundesliga takes place this weekend. The highest chess division in Germany offers all in all 128 games which will be covered live on the internet.

Most of these games will be played in Berlin, where the host-teams SC Kreuzberg and SF Berlin carry out their games at the same place. So eight teams with eight players respectively will meet to play 64 games. Could there be a better omen for a successful weekend? The top-match of the weekend however will take place in M?ºlheim. The league-leader Baden-Baden will face runner-up M?ºlhein-Nord. Many strong grandmasters on both sides will care for some high-class games. In the struggle against relegation the most interesting encounter will take place in Emsdetten where Trier has to win against the home team in order to reduce the distance to his competitors.
