-- Bringing you updated, timely, fair, and objective chess daily news and information from around the globe --
For the first time I really enjoyed watching a chess tournament. It was entertaining, informative and throughout the entire programs maintained a professionalism that invited me to come back every day. Thank you Susan and the professional team that did a wonderful job in keeping us at the edge of our seats. I surely hope we will see more of these quality kind of programs in the future, especially in the world championship. Thanks again, Joseph Luna, Wyoming, USA
wesley so did not win so it was a stupid event
Entertaining tournament to watch! Thanks for the hard work and I hope more tournaments are presented in this manner in the future.
Coverage was great, with twitter blog, reports etc...I think there was maybe a little too much of Susan Polgar, not too much of your work mind you.It's just that following susan polgar, seeing susan polgar on start up picture, following commentary susan polgar's blog twitter youtube picasa...there is a risk of overdose.Just to be clear, I loved your coverage and am very thankful for your work, it's just that some of these maybe called otherwise.
Your commentary was perfect.Some other commentators crossed the line, which I attribute as the organizer's error.The games were very nice, the quick draws, short draws, draws with many pieces left on the board were not.The main questions is to ask, WHO IS THIS WORD CHESS CUP organized for? Players, commentators, spectators, sponsors, arbiters?? It just can't be for all.
Following the World cup was great fun. It's easy to agree with Nigel Short's comment: "The Internet was made for chess!", when I look back on the time when we followed the Spassky-Fischer match games from the newspaper on the next day. The coverage of World Cup with live commentary, video, blogs and whatnot was vastly entertaining.I would pick the rd 4 both Kamsky-Mamedyarov, rd 5 Morozevich-Tomashevsky marathon and the first Kramnik-Andreikin final as the most memorable games of the event, though there were many more interesting ones, too.
Low point: audio and the live transmissions. The jingle was 10x as loud as the commentators mics. Live mistakes for example when interviewing Garry Kasparov.High points: Lawrence Trent his gut suggestions ;-)
