Kasparov-Karpov press conferenceAfter Arne posted about our arrival in Valencia and the press conference, it's my turn. At the end of this long, first day in this remarkably pretty city (some beautiful photos will be added tomorrow!) the video of the press conference on Monday afternoon has been recorded, edited and uploaded. I've removed all unnecessary bits and Spanish translations, and added a few shots from tonight's simuls. Enjoy! Update: playing schedule added.
