Biel live: Video and games

7/25/2016 – The most illustrious event of the International Chess Festival Biel is the match between Maxime Vachier-Lagrave and Peter Svidler. Yesterday's rapid games were entertaining and made one wish for more. Now follow four games with classical time-control interrupted by a rest day after two games. But one should not forget the strong A-Open. Daniel King comments the most interesting moments in a daily live-show.

Live games

In the live broadcast, on the side of each board there is an evaluation meter, showing you which side is better. The small "x" button on the top right of each board will remove it from the broadcast. If you remove two games you will have four larger boards. Removing four will give you two even larger boards, and removing five will give you just one very large board. Refresh the page (Ctrl-R) to return to the four most popular boards.

You can also click the "+" and "–" icons at the bottom right of the broadcast window to increase and decrease the number of boards. There are other functions: you can download PGNs of the running games and even start an engine by clicking the button third from left.

Note that you can view moves and statistics in the opening (with the Live Book switched on) and even analyse on the boards while the games are being broadcast, by moving pieces and using the engine – best in multiple line mode.

Is there a better way to follow the games?
