First game of the World Chess Championship is this Saturday

Vladimir Kramnik and Veselin Topalov will be competing for the title of the World Chess Champion, with the first game this Saturday. This will be an exciting match, as these two have greatly different styles of play--Topalov is extremely tactical and aggressive, while Kramnik is positional and defensive.

I am a big fan of Topalov! His dynamic play is best typified, in my opinion, in this game against Levon Aronian.

Regardless of who wins, this promises to be a great tournament!

Note that the time for the match is 3:00 p.m. Moscow time, 7:00 a.m. Eastern Standard time. That means get up early, US chess fans!
