Seeing amber

Just so you know, this time of year sees one of the most fun chess competitions on the calendar – that is if you don’t think a fun chess competition is a contradiction in terms.

The Amber Tournament pits the very top echelon of chessdom against each other with each round involving a blind game and a game of ‘rapid’ which is about two thirds faster than a competition game – and takes about an hour to play. The official website is here and you can check out the games, complete with computer analysis here.
