    I like all the chess videos on Chess Blog here. In fact Chess Blog pick of videos is nice but for this one. I mean this is also nice but too much formal speeches and opening ceremony guess it could not be avoided. I liked the bit where they showed all the senior players. Chess is so romantic at any age.
