Which sport? Ah, chess. It’d be good to include the sport in the thread title.

^^^ Hey, that brings up my old question. Is chess a sport? :) :)

[We have had long discussions on it. I still insist that it is only a game, and not a sport]

I fully agree; it’s not a sport. But please edit the title. No argument in inserting chess in the title, right?

Semifinal Round 1 : India plays 2-2 draw in round 1...
What a brilliant comeback.....VD was down in game most of the time but made a good draw..Nihal plays draw...Great win by SL Narayan...Sethuraman lost the game( as expected, he has not won single game in the tournament and is the weak link)

We lost Uzbekistan in group stage, in Olympiad and now in semis.....which proves that Uzbekistan is indeed a superior chess team than us....so it's a expected result.....By the way, we have a chance to win bronze if we beat Spain for 3rd place
