    Great! The next time I play on the roller coaster, I can move my piece and blame it on the ride? ;-) LOL!

    ChessTV rules.

    great stuff I like it

    I like the host presenter girl on right of the screen, the girl on red shirt, so pretty, who is she?

    As for the show itself, wow how those guys can play chess on that boat? that extreme you know.

    As for Alexandra vs Polgar game, wow, awesome, few moves before the end I knew Alexandra will get to crown that pawn. and I like the Slow Motion effect on the ending.

    Congratulations just few women in the world have beaten the great Polgar.

    To go directly to Alexandra game just go to 11:00 minute of the video.

    Oh, the accelerated dragon! I've recently taken up this, usually with 2...g6.

    In a recent tournament, I tried the 7...Ng4 line against the maroczy. My opponent played 8. Nxc6 and we had a big swap off. By move 11 we were virtually in an endgame (2 rooks and a light squared bishop each), but his queen side pawns were bad (c2,c3,a2).

    I eventually won the endgame :)
