Basically a froum to cover chess now that we seem to have sufficient interest in the game.

Thanks for the nice summary, Sin hombre. So, it was a different format than the olympiad which is usually played every 2 years ( I think). The format favoured us but still a very good performance indeed.

Looks like Anand is finally on real decline now.

The other big difference I think was these were not calssical games but rapid games. However, there is no doubt this is a super achievement.
