Welcome to the match! Which way do you prefer?

Тhree-level chandelier will obviously follow you.

Firstly we have to examine the position on the emblem...

…get a group shot…

… аnd only then move on…

… to get a seat in the auditorium...

Gelfand makes first move

Anand parries.

A few places are left; close to the end of the game there won't be any not only here, 

but here as well,

in the chess yard,

and in the hall.

The Israeli painter Nir Slav, the son of the Chairman of the Israeli Chess federation Moshe Slav, presented the FIDE museum one of his works called "Noah's Ark." An interesting work, deep idea and... the hard fate of the author. The fact is that Nir Slav is physically challenged, he's almost unable to hear and speak. Nevertheless, the artist considers himself a very happy man: he can move independently, albeit with difficulties, he can paint and enjoy that his works are successful.

Moshe Slav: "In the Israeli chess the knight is a lion".

"What a hard job…"

Peter Doggers agrees.

Boris Postovsky is also always busy with something.

The representatives of RCF radiate good mood.

Albert Kapengut, Boris Postovsky and Yuri Vasiliev. What are they talking about? Surely about the challenger!

"How can we win Gelfand over the Russian team..."

Summer gains momentum…

... as well as the match!
