Day Zero in Tromso 8/1/2014 – The 2014 Chess Olympiad is about to start! Today will host the Opening Ceremony and most of the delegations are arriving. Some of the players are running on tight schedules to make it here while others are freely enjoying the beautiful views of Tromso. We bring you a small pictorial preview of the location and a list of the top players in the most awaited tournament of the year. Discuss

2014 Politiken Cup 8/1/2014 – There are many tournaments that are competitive, stressful, difficult. Where players make sacrifices just to play and compete for the reward of winning. Politiken Cup is not that type of tournament. It is a pleasure to play, in a beautiful location full of fun and daily side events. The small town of Helsingor was once more host to undeniably a successful pre-Olympiad tournament! Discuss

Tactics please: Cool chaos control 8/1/2014 – "The threat is stronger than it's execution" is a famous saying by Nimzowitsch. So don't panic if the opponent has one, two or even three apparently strong threats. Maybe they are not that strong after all? Or you are the one to strike first? To find out, it's best to keep cool and calculate the variations. Oliver Reeh shows how it's done. Discuss

Quotes Of The Day (from Kelly Atkins)

"The majority of people imagine a chess master as being a townsman who passes his life in an atmosphere of smoke and play in cafes and clubs: a neurasthenic individual, whose nerves and brains are continuously working at tension: a one-sided person who has given up his whole soul to chess." Richard Reti

"Tal was a fearless fighter. Nobody could successfully accomplish so many incorrect maneuvers! He simply smashed his opponents." Bent Larsen
