Norwegian Press Celebrates Carlsen

Nettavisen has already been with chess for a while, having hired Grandmaster and respectable writer Leif Erlend Johannessen to provide live commentary on Magnus Carlsen’s games at Corus.

Carlsen – Radjabov LIVE!

Carlsen – Radjabov LIVE!

GM Sergei Movsesian in Corus B and GM Fabiano Caruana in Corus C have secured at least first place tie with a round to go. However, a photo finish expects us in Corus A, as four players have chances for the first place – Carlsen, Radjabov, Aronian, and Anand. Live commentary starts at 12:30 CET.

Kramnik – Carlsen LIVE!

Kramnik – Carlsen LIVE!

Magnus Carlsen’s yesterday defeat against Vishy Anand allowed Levon Aronian to grab the lead, while Carlsen is now half point behind on tied 2nd place. Kramnik and Carlsen have played three classical games through 2007, in all of them Kramnik had white pieces, just like today. Kramnik is considerably more dangerous on the white side of Catalan than on black side of Petroff. This fact, however, won’t stop Carlsen to dive into complications.

Carlsen – Anand LIVE!

Carlsen – Anand LIVE!

In a key game of round 11, Magnus Carlsen has a chance to consolidate the first place, while a win for Anand may give the Indian GM chances for the title. As an interesting fact, Magnus has entered the top 10 FIDE list on provisional rating, while Anand has lost the first place to Kramnik. Join us for live commentary at 13:30 CET!

Caruana – Ushenina LIVE!

Caruana – Ushenina LIVE!

Today’s game is an important test for Fabiano Caruana: after the loss in previous round, he’s leading by just half a point, and tomorrow he’ll play Nijboer with Black pieces, so a win is very important. But Anna Ushenina is a strong 22 years old WGM, and everything may happen!

Van Wely – Carlsen LIVE!

Van Wely – Carlsen LIVE!

Both Van Wely and Carlsen were defeated yesterday, but the latter is still in the lead together with Aronian. This is very important game for Carlsen, as he is scheduled to play with World Champion Anand, Kramnik and Radjabov in the last three rounds. In their last game at Biel 2007, Van Wely won as white in Ragozin defence.

Topalov – Kramnik LIVE!

Topalov – Kramnik LIVE!

The two players have turbulent history and many eyes will be carefully observing the game. Neglecting the sporting side, main question these days is whether there will be a handshake. Let’s leave speculations aside and enjoy some fighting chess.
