07 May – Press reviews from India and Israel

In just a few days Anand and Gelfand will start the first game of their match. We can read previews in the chess press, but it is also helpful to read some articles from India (Anand) and Israel (Gelfand).

In the Indian magazine “Daily News and Analysis” (DNA) we find a preview by Vijay Tagore. Quote:  “Over the next three weeks, his credentials, competence and character will be come under the scanner. Does he have the wherewithal to win the title? Does he have the desire to do it again? And can he become one of the few men to become world champion five times?”

In “The Indian Express” the article “Meet the candidate” is worth reading.

On Haaretz (Israel), you can read the article “Between Israel and Russia, chess is more than just a game”. Recommended.
