Kasparov - Karpov return match

Dear friends from Chessheroes,

The news is not connected to chess in Philippines, but it is important to the whole chess world. Kasparov and Karpov will meet in a 12 games match

We hope to publish more details soon.
Best regards

Not connected to Philippines chess eh? But Kasparov and Karpov remains two of the best known chess icons among Filipino chess enthusiasts today, I should say. So it is happening again. Arguably, the greatest rivalry in chess will once again reprint in history. The last time this two met in a return match was in New York City in 2002 in a series of rapid matches where Karpov upset Kasparov 2.5 - 1.5. Online Filipino bettors, start placing your bet now. The match is still in September anyway.

On to the video, I love Kasparov's reaction at 1:42. He was blaming the clock more than himself.
