Biel Rd.3: postgame analysis of the players

7/21/2011 – Our live broadcast of Biel 2011 is attracting press attention. Not just the live GM commentary during the games, but especially the post-game sessions by the players themselves, who analyse for a world-wide audience while the moves are still fresh in their minds. You can follow these sessions live on Playchess or your browser. Here are video captures with the analysis files in PGN.

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.


The participants: Caruana, Pelletier, Shirov, Carlsen, Morozevich, Vachier-Lagrave

The rate of play: 2 hours for 40 moves, then one hour for 20 and 15 min for the rest of the game, with 30 sec increment per move. The scoring system is three points for a win, one for a draw and zero for a loss. No draw offers are permitted before move 30.

 Fabiano Caruana
Alex. Morozevich

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. All this is available to a world-wide audience on Playchess and with a normal Internet browser on our special Chesslive broadcast page. At the end of the report you will find a PGN file to download and analyse yourself, assisted by your favourite chess engine.
