Chess is back

Kasparov vs Karpov 2009

Kasparov vs Karpov 2009

It obviously takes titans to re-animate the chess community. With Kasparov, the grand master of chess (ret.) and Karpov reliving the good old days in Spain we can see that personality in chess does come through. Special thanks must go to Karpov, who has to battle the possibility of a whitewash. It takes guts to stand up the might that is Kasparov, and he does it for the good of the game, the cash (I hope) and for a bit of rekindling of the old spirit. Lets face it chess has gotten stuffy and I must say that this game has my son and I huddled in front of the screen, watching the moves live and then debating afterwards how it went and why?
