Embed Chessboard Plugin

Just testing out the Embed Chessboard WordPress Plugin with this post. For your viewing pleasure, “all” eleven games of the 2008 World Chess Championship between Kramnik and Anand which saw the latter winning by a score of 6.5-4.5.

What do you think (both about the match and plugin)? How’s this player compare to some of the others I’ve used in the past? (Next time, I’ll try it with some annotated games, assuming it can handle them.)

EDIT: Now that I’ve published this, I can see it leaves an ugly amount of space when you have a list of games queued up. I’m guessing it uses the longest game to carve out a spot for the Javascript.

EDIT2: Even worse, it also turned out to be a little flakey, sometimes not displaying at all, other times taking forever to load. I may try it one more time yet, but just with a single annotated game. We’ll see.


Anand Wins World Chess Championship

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

My man Kramnik came out swinging today, but alas, it was not to be. Anand has dethroned the true champion in the historical line of great match players by a score of 6.5-4.5. Now, congratulations are in order.


Kramnik 4 – Anand 6

That’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout! Practically a miniature! :)

Too bad World Chess Championship matches are so damn short these days. Anyway, tomorrow’s a rest day. Hopefully that doesn’t slow the momentum of the last couple games.


Kramnik 3 – Anand 6

Sunday, October 26th, 2008

A very exciting game today! Everyone watching live on the ICC was on the edge of their seats with anticipation as Kramnik looked sure to notch his first win. Alas, it was not to be, and it looks as though he’ll join the likes of Kasparov in more ways than one, i.e., by going an entire World Chess Championship match sans full point.


Kramnik 2.5 – Anand 5.5

And then there was one. That is, one point until Anand lays claim to the World Chess Championship. In Game 8, it looks like Kramnik was once again surprised in the opening. Rumor has it Anand’s 10…Bxb5 is essentially a theoretical novelty.



Serious chess. Serious fun!
