Trivia Guess where I am and win a prize


Dear friends & chess fans,

This photo was taken yesterday, next to a Christmas tree and snow on my head - be the first to guess exactly where I am and send me an email about it, and you might be the winner of an autographed gift!


Good luck!

    Hello everybody!

    I got lots of correct answers by email, as well as many incorrect ones. Many people thought I was some place in Moscow, but in fact I was still in Miami, more precisely in the Dolphin Mall (you can read the letters "Dolphin" behind me).

    And the winner - first person who answered correctly is... David Hunt! Congratulations and thanks to all for participating.

    W wojnie płuci remis 1:1 ze wskazaniem dla pań


    W niezmiernie prestiżowym pojedynku mistrz świata mężczyzn kontra mistrzyni świata kobiet padł wynik remisowy. W pierwszej partii Wiszi Anand pokonał Aleksandrę Kosteniuk, ale w drugiej dosłownie został zmieciony z szachownicy. W szachowej walce płuci remis, choć to panie są w natarciu. Oto partia pod tytułem "Kobieta mnie bije..."
