RAW Maggie Challenge!
Let’s start the countdown folks! While Magnus is still sound asleep, the rest of the world has started to prepare for the big match! I’m really looking forward to seeing what kind of fun and surprises the official site will offer at http://rwcc.g-star.com/. Don’t miss it! Who knows, in the midst of battle, there might be an interview with Nobel Prize presenter and hobby chess player Willard Smith…. There’s only one way to find out 🙂
I’ll be busy having a live chat during the game. I think it’ll mostly be in Norwegian, but if you have any questions, trying there isn’t going to kill anyone 🙂 Oh, and you can always leave a comment here! VG, the newspaper hosting the chat, has become the #1 paper on chess news and they’ll have their own guy in New York! So we’ll be treated to some special on-site intel!
I also spoke about this match when I went on ‘Pardon our Blunders’ with Danny Rensch at chess.com. I think the public will adjust well to the quick time limits and it’s important to be true to your gut feeling! At least one of the best chess players in the world agree that this is the best move, so you can’t go too wrong – Go for it!
Looking silly with your head phone is not something you care about when you’re having a fun interview! Hopefully I’ll make another appearance very soon 🙂 Check out the video yourself! With a username at chess.com (free!), you can go to www.chess.com/tv and click your way to ‘Videos on demand’ and the September 8th broadcast.
