Thanks to all of the visitors who came yesterday to read my translation of GM Sergey Shipov’s analysis of Game 4 of the Anand-Gelfand match! I hope that you are all already planning to come here again tomorrow.
I realize that most of you are coming here for just three reasons: Anand, Gelfand, and Shipov. However, I hope that some of you, at least, will take a look at some of my other posts at “dana blogs chess.” A good place to start might be the top ten posts list (link provided in the sidebar). Also, if you’re interested in any of my other writing endeavors such as my recent book The Universe in Zero Words, please go to http://danamackenzie.com.
My main order of business today is to let you know the schedule of translations for the rest of the match. As I said in a previous post, I am splitting them with Chess in Translation, with six games here and six there (assuming the match goes to its scheduled twelve games). Here is where you can find the final six rounds.
|Round||Date||Translation to appear at:|
|7||5/20||dana blogs chess|
|8||5/21||Chess in Translation|
|9||5/23||dana blogs chess|
|10||5/24||dana blogs chess|
|11||5/26||Chess in Translation|
|12||5/28||dana blogs chess|
I don’t know what GM Shipov’s plans are in case of a tiebreak. If there is a playoff and if Shipov decides to do commentary on it (which is somewhat questionable — how can you do meaningful live commentary on a rapid game?) you should probably go to Chess in Translation. I guess we’ll cross that bridge if and when we come to it.
But definitely come back here tomorrow for more exciting action!
P.S. There was a comment on my last translation asking for a PGN file of the translation. In future rounds I will put a link to the PGN in my blog post (an extra step that will delay my posts by at most 5 minutes… but since they’re not live, I don’t think that will be a big issue). The PGN for game 4, as well as the PGN files for the other games I translate, will be permanently archived on my “Chess Translations” page, which you can get to by clicking on the navigation bar at the top of the page.
