This weekend the 10th and 11th round of the world's strongest club competition, the Bundesliga, have been played. We have results, games and, most importantly, video interviews!

It's almost impossible for OSC Baden Baden not to win another national title. Their 22 points out of 11 matches say enough - it's not so bad, is it? Despite playing without Carlsen, Anand and Shirov, who were attending the closing ceremony of Morelia/Linares on Saturday afternoon, the German top team scored another two victories this weekend, against SC Eppingen and TV Tegernsee.

One player deserves special attention. Arkadij Naiditsch has scored an astronomical 8.5 out of 9 so far (a 2971 performance). In four weeks, the national champion will meet SF Katernberg and SV M?ɬºlheim-Nord and in Trier they can already secure themselves of another title.

Recently the Bundesliga acquired a new webmaster, IM Georgios Souleidis, who was already known in German cyberspace because of his excellent blog Entwicklungsvorsprung.

During the Bundesliga weekends Georgios will try to provide video interviews, and today you can already watch the first three! First there's the Russian GM Alexander Motylev (Peter Svidler's second in Mexico) who tells about his game with Black against Kasimdzhanov (Saturday) and his White game against Miroshnichenko (Sunday).

Georgios also interviewed the two young Dutch IMs Robert Ris and Robin Swinkels, who both travelled to Germany this weekend to... meet each other behind the chess board. It was part of Sunday's match SC Remagen-SF Katernberg.
