10 May: Chess Tigers on Tour – new pictures

Am WM Schachbrett herrscht noch Ruhe vor dem Sturm

An new collection of pictures by Hans-Walter Schmitt about the Victory Day celebrations and about the riots on the 06 May near the hotel. Text in German.

Later today: pictures of the press conference and the official opening in the State Tretyakov Gallery.

On the official match website we read: “During the opening ceremony, which will be held in the Mikhail Vrubel Hall of the State Tretyakov Gallery, it will be determined which of the match participants will play white during the first game. The drawing procedure will be conducted by the event’s Chief Arbiter, Ashot Vardapetyan. The ceremony will conclude with a concert by pianist Denis Matsuev and other young Russian musicians.”

Arbiter Ashot Vardapetyan will conduct the drawing procedure.
