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 http://previews.chessdom.com/
We hope to publish more details soon.
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.
