Legendary Chess Players' Team Beats Geneva Chess Club; Spraggett, Korchnoi, Ribli Top-Scorers <-- Chess Video Reports

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

The Geneva Chess Club organised a cool chess match from August 4-10: Club members' team took on legends (all world chess championship candidates)! Viktor Korchnoi, Zoltan Ribli and Kevin Spraggett all top-scored for the legends to win 33-17! French chess magazine Europe-Echecs has a detailed report, videos and photos. Here are some of the cool videos. Guess which former world chess champion attended the ninth round as a surprise visit? Lars Rindlisbacher completed its first International Master norm with the result by 4.0 points on 10 against an average of 2544 elo. You can also find a nice post and details by Kevin Spraggett on his chess blog.
