New chess champion (and challenger)

The 11th game of the WCC between Anand and Kramnik is being played now. My computer chess engine analysis says Kramnik is in trouble, since he is headed for a draw at best and he needs a win today and in the last game. However, my chess engine has a top rating of 2350 and these guys are in the high 2700’s. They could definitely could crush my chess engine.

For a wood pusher like me though, it is interesting to follow the chess engine analysis, for it gives me at least some insight into what must be going through their heads as they play.

…and that’s it. Kramnik offered a draw and Anand accepted to become the new world chess champion. But how good is his game after six shots of whiskey and six beers? Inquiring minds like mine want to know. I challenge him to a match at Pippin’s anytime. I’ll only make him drink four shots and four beers before we start.
