is chess in the Olympics

  There is currently no chess in the Olympiad. The Chess Olympiad is a chess competition officially organized by FIDE since 1927 and takes place in even-numbered years. Before World War II the event was occasionally held every year. There was also an unofficial Chess Olympiad series that ended in 1976. Although chess is covered in the sports sections of many newspapers around the world, it is not one of the recognized sports in the Olympic Games.

This means that chess could one day become an Olympic event, although most knowledgeable observers say this is unlikely. The World Chess Championship is a competition held annually by the international chess organization FIDE to determine the World Champion of chess. Both men and women are eligible to participate in this championship. The World Champion does not have to be the player with the highest Elo rating: the 2006-2007 World Champion, Vladimir Kr

Game Analysis #6: Audacity

Final position, 1-0

Here's a quick and exciting online game that I had several years back, this will be a short analysis. It was a 15-minute game but we didn't need to spend the whole 15 minutes for it to end because I got lucky against my opponent due to some dubious opening moves. It's quite cool but it's not something that you would learn much from except for the fact that you should not play in such a flashy way and mind you, I have had my fair share of those exploits where I just go gung-ho and play any reckless move I could think of without considering the consequences. I do it when I don't care what the outcome of the game would be and I just want to try out some crazy ideas.
