Round 2 live commentary show from the 2014 Icelandic Chess Championship
A live five minute blitz game with commentary and post-mortem analysis. The opening in this game for white was the London System and we get to see the importance of going h3 at the right time for white, keeping and preserving the important “London”-Bishop on the diagonal.
A chess blitz game with live commentary. Timecontrol three minutes for the game. My opponent is a tough player and a fast one which is always tricky in 3-minute games.
After playing a game and a quick post-mortem discussion I agreed to a 5-game match with FM Raskolnnikov from Costa Rica. Interesting games with varied openings and decisions.
