Re: Chess on Eurosport this evening

Yes, the 600 million stat did unfortunately crop up (along with another one about “one billion app downloads”) in a five-minute marketing segment at the end. The main programme was much better than that end-piece, although that bit probably wasn’t aimed at chess fans. A lot of the sports that Eurosp...

Re: Chess on Eurosport this evening

I found it quite an enjoyable watch. Inevitably it was a bit of a rush to fit 15 games into the hour, so the commentary on the games felt fairly superficial, but nonetheless it gave a good overview of the key events (such as there were!) of the match. I thought the producers did a good job selecting...

Chess on Eurosport this evening

Flicking through the channels just now to see what sport is on, I was amazed to see chess amongst the offerings! :shock:

A one-hour highlights show from the World Championship is on Eurosport 2 at 9.30 tonight, and repeated on Eurosport 1 at midnight. It'll be great to see chess on the TV!

That's two people who would prefer not Monday, so how about Wednesday 8pm instead?

Re: NFL Fantasy Football

Yes - let's do this again!

Is everyone in again for this year? Or any new players wanting to join?

Re: NFL Fantasy Football

Just half an hour until draft time, so the live draft client should now be available to everyone via the "Drafting now" link on the league homepage. If anyone has any problems accessing it let me know. The randomly assigned drafting order is: Edgarley Lions, Histon Hawks, NFL_is_Rugby's_little_siste...

Re: Olympiad

Looking forward to seeing how the Poland-China match plays out. The Poles have their best player, Wojtaszek, and their most in-form player, Duda, both playing white, which is probably the situation that gives them the best chance in the match. If they can both continue their good form maybe they cou...

Re: World Cup Fantasy Football.

The standings in the FIFA game are interesting: SpartakHove still has a big lead (over 50 points), but then there's a four-way battle for second place between eoin.devane, jsg1967, LozCooper, and PikeyMike. It's then another 36 points back to the chasing pack. Still, all could change in the knockout...
