Today in Tallinn, Estonia was the fifth day of the World Title Match between World Champion Alexander Georgiev and Challenger Alexander Schwarzman .
The match consists of seven playing days. Each day, there is a winner because of the rapid, blitz and tiebreak games that follow in case of a draw in the classic game.
Alexander Schwarzman after five days is leading with three wins against two wins for Alexander Georgiev. Both players have won one classic game.
The games can be watched live at the match website http://www.wcmm2013.fmjd.org. There is streaming video of the match available through Ustream. Some match information is also distributed through Twitter, Facebook and Youtube. The games are analyzed live by computer program Sjende Blyn. Each day, there is a short video interview with the winner of the day. The mentioned social media are not accessible from everywhere but the live game and live computer analysis should be accessible. Please let me know in case you are experiencing problems with this and I will try to help and solve it.
The last two match days - as the previous five days! - promise to be very exciting. Schwarzman currently is leading and can secure the World Title already tomorrow if he wins the classic game. However, if Georgiev wins tomorrow in the blitz game, the two giants will start the 7th day with exactly the same amount of wins and ultimately, it may only be the tie break on the 7th day that will decide the winner and the 2014 challenger of the winner of the Ufa tournament next month.
