Rest Day in Dresden, Kamsky-Topalov match now in Bulgaria

Rest Day in Dresden, Kamsky-Topalov match now in Bulgaria

Today was a well needed rest day in Dresden.  This was the first formal opportunity for the players to get out and enjoy some non-chess related activities.

The hosts had all sorts of events planned including a fashion show.

Kamsky his second and a slew of FIDE officials along with Topalov representatives all came to an agreement about rescheduling the match for February in Bulgaria.  Interesting enough Topalov was not there and is already booked for Linares.

In another turn of events, the FIDE officials immediately drafted contracts for both players as well as press announcements after the meeting.  This could be observed as a new efficiency coming around for this event.  Now let's hope that this date holds.
