Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

The Max Euwe chess tournament begins in the beautiful city of Amsterdam. But ahead of the start of the event, one of the greatest chess players, GM Jan Timman, played a simul. After the simul the drawing of lots took place. In group A we will see the following games on Monday: Peng-Cramling and Olafsson-van der Sterren In group B we have the games Socko-van Kampen and Conquest- Arakhamia. You can follow the games live on the tournament website: After the ceremony, Paul van der Sterren presented his massive biography in the Dutch language “Zwart op wit”. New in Chess publisher Allard Hoogland handed over the first copy of the book.
