What does Topalov's face expression show? Today Veselin turned 39.

Veselin was first to appear at Chess academy. He lives further than others, so perhaps he goes out earlier than his opponents. 

Vladimir Kramnik in his comfortable chair. He might not be that comfortbale today though: playing against Svidler with black pieces. 

Olga is waiting...

    My impressions of the first playing day in Sochi can be summed up in one sentence: great fuss about a single game of chess. It seems to me that's not the way it should be, ideally.

  • On the free day of the Shamkir tournament there is traditionally a football match. As last year, four teams were playing. In the semifinals, the chessplayers of Azerbaijan and the rest of the world, alas, lost to the teams of journalists and organisers/sponsors. But Magnus Carlsen played in the final as a guest for the organisers/sponsors' team, strengthening an already strong team. He was the outstanding player on the pitch.
