Polgar on the WCCU match

Just a quickie

For those of you who play chess, quite a few of us received an e-mail from Susan Polgar* this morning:

Dear chess friends and colleagues,

As you probably know, the World Chess Championship Unification Match between Veselin Topalov (Bulgaria) and Vladimir Kramnik (Russia) has begun. The match so far is filled with excitement and drama with Kramnik leading 2-0.

I am doing LIVE commentary and analysis on Full game analysis and commentary is available after the conclusion of each game. In addition, there are daily chess news updates, advice, puzzles and tournament announcements, etc. Please feel free to check it out.

My website has also been completely revamped with many new and cool features. Your comments and suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

Best wishes,
Susan Polgar


Go check it out! And cheer for Topalov as he comes across as a smashing chap, and he’s sadly 0-2 down.

Thanks for the info, Chris. I sure hope Toppy does something quick. It would be a crying shame if Drawnik ran away with it. :)

Oh I agree! I'll never forget the video interview made with Topy after Kasparov retired - oozing humility. He gave a lovely impression. I'm sure Drawnik is a nice chap too, but I also prefer Topalov's style. Goes for the throat!
