Biel Rd.2: postgame analysis of the players

7/20/2011 – It is sometimes referred to as a "post mortem" session: in Biel the winning player, or the more satisfied one, sometimes both, will appear on the stage to analyse with the resident GM. This analysis goes to the local audience, but also via Playchess to chess fans all over the world. You can follow these sessions live or in our special postgame report, which includes video captures.

The 2011 Biel Chess Festival is taking place from July 16 to 29, in a number of groups: the Master Tournament (eleven rounds Swiss); the Main Tournament (nine rounds Swiss); a Rapid and a Blitz tournament; Chess960; Youth, Simultaneous, Chess Tennis, ChessBase training seminars. Of greatest interest is of course the Accentus Grandmaster Tournament with six very strong grandmasters playing a double round robin: Magnus Carlsen, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Alexei Shirov, Fabiano Caruana, Alexander Morozevich and Yannick Pelletier.

Round 2: Tuesday, July 19, 14:00h
Maxime Vachier 
0-1
 Alex. Morozevich
Magnus Carlsen 
1-0
 Alexei Shirov
Yannick Pelletier 
½-½
 Fabiano Caruana

During the games of the Biel Chess Festival there is live commentary – by GM Miso Cebalo in German and GMs like Danny King, Jan Gustafsson or Jan Smeets in English. After the games are over the players come to the stage where Cebalo analyses the moves with them (in English). These are particularly interesting sessions, since the proponents have everything still fresh in their minds, and are in fact exploring, in real time, what happened just minutes ago.

In the following we provide you with videos of the analysis sessions as well as the lines that were discussed, both on JavaScript replay boards. At the end of the report you will find a PGN file to download and analyse yourself, assisted by your favourite chess engine.
