Karpov vs. Kasparov rematch

You are probably aware of this promising rematch between former world chess champions Anatoly Karpov and Garry Kasparov. (Valencia - Spain, september 21-24, 2009)

What do you think about the possible games ? Is Karpov now too old, is Kasparov able to concentrate on chess only again ? What can be their state of mind during such a match, 25 years after their first match that became legendary... It should be a great event anyway, maybe even more interesting than the last FIDE chess championships. (By the way I don't know if there will be sponsors and/or prizes)

I hadn't heard about that - I look forward to it. Is there a website dedicated to the match?

I did not find a site about that match, but
is a report about it, also to find on the <fide.com> site

Kasparov leads 2-0

Too bad, I cannot find videos of the games on Youtube :/

probably because

they said after first 5 minutes press was put to the back of the room.

Games 1 & 2

What do you think about the final positions ?

Karpov wins game 3

.. but he lost game 4, Kasparov leads 3-1

Thibault de Vassal    (2009-09-24 14:43:00)
Kasparov wins 3-1

Oops, actually Kasparov won the match already.

The final score: 3-1, quite logical and a nice promotion for chess in the world !

Not over yet...

There are still 8 blitz games to be played, so Tolya could stage a comeback (it seems unlikely though, given the time trouble he's had in the rapid games).

Thibault de Vassal    (2009-09-28 17:31:29)
Final score 9-3

Kasparov beats Karpov 9-3 (as their ratings predicted).

Nice match, with quite few draws compared to their previous World Championship matches :)
