Corsica - The Land of Chess

Hello everybody!

In May 2009 I had a chance to visit the island of Corsica and met the main inspirer of the "chess fever" on the island - Leo Battesti. I also played a rapid match against Sophie Milliet. I had a wonderful time in Corsica you can read about this visit here, you can also go and see my photo memories of this trip here.

On October 31st and November 2nd another big chess match between Viswanathan Anand and Anatoly Karpov took place in Corsica. Below is a nice video-clip which was prepared by the organizers especially for this event.
