Bundesliga starts, with new live portal

| 0 | Chess Event Coverage
BundesligaTomorrow the new Schachbundesliga season takes off with three encounters of the 7th round and the regular first two rounds on Saturday and Sunday at the venues Baden-Baden, Bremen, Wattenscheid and Aue. The Bundesliga also presents a novelty: all games are presented within a new designed live portal with some really nice features.

The season starts with some top games in Baden-Baden. The four teams involved at this venue present 27 grandmasters and some really interesting faces and players. The top match of the weekend takes place between Baden-Baden and Solingen on Saturday.

The runner-up Bremen welcomes at home the teams of Delmenhorst, Hamburg and Berlin. Bremen is theoretically the only serious contender of Baden-Baden and odds-on favourite this first weekend.

In Wattenscheid, a part of the city of Bochum, the home team welcomes the teams of Emsdetten, Trier and Griesheim. Here some interesting young players can be expected. Wattenscheid is playing with the youngest German grandmaster Sebastian Bogner, and Emsdetten will probably be playing with young Dutch prodigy Anish Giri.

At the venue Aue, a city located in the far east of Germany, the teams of Nickelhütte Aue, Bayern München, Katernberg and Mülheim will meet for their matches. Aue, who promoted to the first Schachbundesliga last year, is one of the underdogs in the league.

Like last season the Schachbundesliga publishes the lineups of the teams that are playing at the Baden-Baden venue. This weekend's pairings are as follows:

7th round: Friday, 8th of October 2010, 4pm* Werder Bremen - Delmenhorster SK SV Wattenscheid - SK Turm Emsdetten ESV Nickelhütte Aue - FC Bayern München
