I dunno if under pressure she didn't realise she had Rf1-f8?

Re: 2018 Women's World Championship

There's more than that though. She was able to reach the fiftieth move - but didn't realise!

Re: 2018 Women's World Championship

Muzychuk (M) v Abdumalik is proving quite the battle royale.

Re: 2018 World Championship in London

On the theme of selling tickets to a venue without access to the live game (to be fair, this is not precisely what is happening at these London WCC): $100 to not see games?

Re: 2018 World Championship in London

My vote would go to Manchester, a city which was promised a world championship match in the 1990s but had it cruelly snatched away.
Fortunately they've had a clear-out of the sort of people who do things like that

Re: 2018 World Championship in London

Thanks, though without knowing which moves they were, we're not really there yet... In C.N. 6315 Alan O’Brien (Mitcham, England) noted that in another match-game, the 28th, this position arose: Alekhine played 41 Nef4 and wrote: ‘The text move was sealed and it took me an hour and 50 minutes to con...

Re: 2018 World Championship in London

In the 11th game of their match in 1927 for the world’s championship, Capablanca took two hours on one move, and Alekhine took an hour and three-quarters for his reply. https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-longest-a-GM-has-haver-taken-to-make-a-move-in-competitive-chess Thanks, though without knowing ...

Paid £70 for a ticket for Game 2 to replace someone who couldn't go. At the ticket office got issued with a blue wrist band and a little ticket to say I could go into the main theatre for 30 minutes (from 3.50pm - 4.20pm). Lucky me.
Maybe thirty minutes is a luxury

Couple of real tragedies there, though at least Abdumalik is still there for the tie-breaks.
