Pogonina.com: 5th Anniversary!

User Rating: / 4
Written by Administrator   
Thursday, 20 March 2014


It is hard to believe it, but Pogonina.com has been launched 5 years ago. Our initial plans were quite modest: the site was supposed to be a simple personal page of Natalia Pogonina, where she would write blog posts and publish photos & reports from tournaments. As of now we have become a popular chess portal with great contributors and a large number of features available.

Thank you for your attention and support! Stay tuned for more pleasant surprises!

Sincerely yours,
Pogonina.com Team

Could it be the last chance that Kramnik to take on the World Championship title?! For over 20 years Vladimir has been one of the best players in the world, he has won everything possible, and we all remember that he was the only person beating Kasparov in a WCC Match! Before the Candidates, Kramnik even rejected to play in the Zurich super tournament to be in a perfect shape. And he is, as with another novelty Kramnik puts big problems to Karjakin, who didn't find any way to save the game.

In this special weekly column we will be looking at the most unexpected upsets that happened last week. Players usually face opponents of a similar level. Considerably less frequent are situations when a significantly lower-rated player succeeds in beating a much stronger adversary.
