Hey ChessBase!

| Permalink | 66 comments

I see the comments have been getting testy about the world's most popular chess news site declining to provide much in the way of coverage of San Sebastian, a category 18 that includes the reigning Russian and American champions and a mighty impressive hot streak by the latter. So far they've provided equal coverage to Michael Jackson's chess set, with one article on each. The nice photo story after round two didn't even include a pic of Nakamura. I mean, maybe he's no Brad Pitt but he was already leading the event. It should be noted they have daily updates on San Sebastian on their Spanish page. It is a little strange the English page is ignoring it since the traffic I know about elsewhere has largely validated my prediction that Nakamura's presence at a big event (let alone such astounding success) would draw a lot of viewers from the large -- and often highly partisan -- online chess community in the US.

Plus, there are some fun items right up the usual ChessBase alley. First off, the bevy of photogenic young female chessplayers in the Diputación Foral de Gipuzkoa event. The way the usual ChessBase Olympiad reports would lead you to believe the Guatemalan women's team was the most important story there you'd think they'd be all over San Sebastian based on the pics in the official site's Flickr page. And then there's the history angle as we come up on the 100th anniversary of the legendary 1911 San Sebastian tournament. Capablanca was an unknown whose participation there was protested against by some of the established masters. He went on to win what was then one of the strongest tournaments of all time and a legend was duly launched. Now another young man from the Americas is in San Sebastian and headed for a shocking victory. At 21, Nakamura is a year younger than Capablanca was in 1911. Okay, okay, I exaggerate for effect, but go with it. Organizer David Llada was even wondering if he should go with "Nakablanca" or "Capamura" for a new nickname.

To be fair, I think they also mostly ignored the Poikovsky tournament, also a cat. 18, last month, running only a concluding report. But that event didn't have Kasimjanov or, more importantly from the usual ChessBase perspective, his wife.


Nakamura like Capablanca ??? Hell.. That's an LSD like vision... Frankly your whining because chessbase dooesn't give enough coverage to San Sebastian , just because yor new American Idol is leading the field ( as now.. Wait until the end of it before starting singing tribal songs of victory ) is really a bit annoying.

Nakamura is currently far even from #10 in the World ..Please..

First off, I was responding to all the comments on this. I don't really pay attention to what other sites do or don't cover. The tongue-in-cheek nature of the post should be pretty obvious.

It's interesting how the American aspect drives some people crazy. Nobody freaks out when a German cheers for a German, etc, but Americans are jingoistic thugs when they do it. I wonder what will be said when Caruana comes home...

I think the Chessbase coverage has been going downhill for a while. It used to be THE place to go to read chess news, now there are just better sites. It's a little pointless when they ignore such a large % of top tournaments, including the incident with MTel.

Yea, only for those pics of Pono and the girls (Flickr link by Mig) deserves a piece.

Plus, there are very important stories to be investigated. Like: why was tourney organizer David Llada wearing Ponomariov's underwear yesterday? Where are Woodward and Bernstein when you need them? (Full disclosure: I had lunch with Bernstein a few weeks ago.)

Mig.. It's not freaking out..It's Just a simple comment on your Nakamura addiction.. Obviously your cheering for your countryfellow it's perfectly correct and understandable , but your comparisons , even if tongue -in -cheek , to Capablanca.. Hey.. ;-)

As far as Caruana.. Younger and not so far in rating from Nakamura.. But he's currently playing for Italy in team competitions and living in Hungary with a Russian trainer.. Guess it's difficult how to classify him..

Transnational young chesspro ?

Chess-base has a nice report on the german Page.
May be they will translate it to the english page.

I am still wondering why ...
- Chessbase is apparently obliged to cover _all_ events
- many people complain about Chessbase, but still follow it ... really primarily to find something to complain about?
- many people specifically complain about or make fun of women's pictures on Chessbase (but apparently enjoy them, just don't want to admit it).

Part of the 'problem' may be that Chessbase is the only site having three different versions (German, English, Spanish) - in that order, it seems that the German site tends to be most up-to-date. Translating everything IS additional work [Chessvibes discontinued 'parallel' coverage in Dutch some time ago, part of their Dutch audience was 'not amused' about it but it's a rational decision].

At the start, San Sebastian was simply in the shadow of Dortmund. As another recent example, most sites had relatively little coverage of the Aeroflot Open (before the Mamedyarov-Kurnosov incident), presumably because it collided with [as far as I remember] Topalov-Kamsky and Linares.

Hi Mig, I take it your 'tongue-in-cheek' voice in the article means you actually think CB isn't so bad after all? Otherwise I have I misunderstood something. Also, your comments about their supposed love for semi-dirty pictures seems about five years late.

On a more serious note, I'm wondering if Naka himself is bothered by this lack of attention. To me, he has always given the impression of not-caring-one-dime about serious chess (and, consequently, serious chess reporting), first spending hours clicking bullet games on the internet, then playing stuff like 2.Qh5 and now again leaving tournaments before they're finished. Perhaps CB is somehow annoyed by this attitude? :-) Cheers, Arne


You yourself seem to admit that CB has no double standards and they have omitted other cat 18 events. You seem to suggest that greater interest because of Nakamura's presence justifies more coverage. Isn't CB's focus on attractive women players justified by the same argument and logic?


ps: Why is the Flickr coverage when similar coverage from CB is panned?

I do not think Chessbase has a team of journalists and a big budget like BBC.

If someone writes a nice report and sends it to Mr. Friedel, maybe it will be posted.

A website suposed to deliver information is not supossed to act like a person and get mad at this or that player, that´s what fans are for.
If CB bussines has something to do with news (which i seriously doubt) then they shouldn ´t deprive their readers of an unbiased coverage of events .
But what they really do is sell dvds and suscriptions , and support ¨their¨ players (those who help them sell dvds) like Kramnik and such.


Since this is a thread on Chessbase, posting it again. As a victim of libel threats yourself, what do you think of Polgar's alleged threat to Chessbase and a scared Chessbase backing off?

More details at:


Canadian chess championship on chessbase. Interesting, few big names and then photos of 1900 chicks. It just makes me laugh now.

In itself, it's interesting (remarkable, unique?) that 'big names' as Shirov, Ni Hua and Adams play in such a tournament and face local players rated 1800-1900. For the latter, it is most certainly the game of their life [at most, they may get a second or third chance in simuls].
Laughable? A matter of taste ... . Newsworthy? I think so, but of course xtra is free to disagree.

"It's interesting how the American aspect drives some people crazy."

Nothing wrong with cheering, but some people tend to exaggerate (here and elsewhere).

Comparing Naka with Capa? An exaggeration as you admit yourself, somewhat plausible given the historical context of San Sebastian tournaments, a typical Mig joke - fine with me.
Comparing Naka's performance with Karpov's in Linares 1994? Highly exaggerated, but apparently this was meant seriously.
Complaining that Europeans don't (or didn't) recognize Naka's talent and potential? Partly his own fault, as he declined Corus B invitations several times and didn't play opens such as Aeroflot.
Switching to internal American affairs: Calling the curtains on Kamsky because Naka had better results for the last ~3 months? The future will tell ... .

Chessbase site has a terrific simple layout. Front page with headline and synopsis of several stories. Not much clutter. I'd recommend the layout to many others e.g. Mig :-) The daily dirt would be greatly enhanced if each blog item just had 4 or 5 lines of the first para and then you can drill into Mig's article/comments from there.

Thomas, don't get me wrong I liked the article about the Canadian Championship. I imagine it must have been quite a thrill playing against those GMI.

It's just when we get 2 pictures of a 1900 girl, it's laughable.

Who cares? Let Chessbase cover what they want to.

I don't understand why some readers complain about what they get for free. Why not simply be grateful that Chessbase provides free (and in my opinion, high-quality) content?

I think Kapalik's question to Mig about Susan Polgar is a more interesting topic. But if Mig doesn't want to answer it, I won't complain. Like Chessbase, Mig is free to cover what he wants on his (free, and IMO high-quality) site.

As weakchess pointed out there is a detailed report at the german page .
Im wondering when finally chessninja will cover german and spanish language ^^ .

No... ChessBase has no obligation to cover specific events, but if there is always a glaring omission of a particular player then that is another story. The coverage at ChessBase has always been very select (mostly European chess) with a few contributions from small federations and that's fine for their niche.

People should be content that there are many sites to choose from for chess-related material and stop relying on 1-2 sites for all news coverage. It's not going to happen. Trust me... it's overwhelming to maintain a dynamic news chess site regardless of the focus. I remember recently people were complaining about Mig when his Daily Dirt was not being updated (because of his pending fatherhood).

If you want chess news, you can find it... use an RSS feed! If you can't find it, then start your own site or blog.

xtra's lament over Chessbase's Canadian Open coverage misses the fact that among the "few big names" in the field is Canadian IM Artiom Samsonkin, who handed Nakamura his most recent classical loss in tournament play. In fact, Naka's head was handed to him:


So for that and other reasons (eg the 1st-round open rules system is a stronger chess development tool than simuls), the coverage shouldn't bother people so much.

I'm a Yankee and I follow and cheer for Anand, Carlson, Topalov and Mamedyarov. Also have great hopes for Caruna.

It is so refreshing to have a fellow American in Nakamura to cheer for. We don't see alot of Americans in top events so GIVE US A BREAK!!

As for Kamsky I haven't seen him in 15 years but back then he was as American as Putin. (ie totally alien to anything remotely American)Don't know what he is like now but then he didn't really drape himself in the stars and stripes.

English Coverage :


With a Pic of your Hero at first place and a lot of Chicks xD .

English Coverage :


Hikaru at first pic and a lot of Chicks as you like it :P .

Correct. Chessbase has no obligation.

But..Chessbase does make an effort to present itself as a news (feature?) source. It is partially their fault if "fans" hold them to the fire for ignoring notable events, etc.

And, I think it is safe to assume, that the US is a sizeable market. If not now, then definitely something to consider exploiting. For them to ignore an American's excellent performance might be considered a sloppy business decision.

The lady who is writing these reports Anastasia Karlovich is actually playing in the women's tournament. So, cut her some slack if the reports are not being filed regularly.

Granda has an edge, but unless the time delay on the tournament site is huge, he seems to be heading for major time pressure.

Let's get real, Europe is a continent, not a "niche" (says a European). As I and others mentioned before, Chessbase partly relies on material provided by the organizers. As far as their own coverage is concerned, it depends on whether someone from their staff happens to be present at the scene (usually as a player, coach or second) - also explaining their 'bias' towards European events.
Focusing on Nakamura: I would say (with a grain of salt) that, until recently, he wasn't quite important or strong enough to even merit the effort of systematically avoiding him and his tournaments. He was just one of many players trying, for quite a while in vain, to cross 2700. And he was already too old to count as a teenage prodigy - comparable to Carlsen, Karjakin and Radjabov "in their younger years" or, presently, Caruana, Wesley So, Anish Giri.
I agree with Daaim that there are many chess websites competing with and complementing each other. I find it a tiny bit odd that - to my knowledge for the first time - one site (this one) is directly attacking another one (Chessbase). Well, Mig states that this is "tongue-in-cheek" and (borrowing a phrase Chessbase uses advertising their products) 'on popular demand'.

@Thomas "it depends on whether someone from their staff happens to be present at the scene..."

I suppose Mig's post indirectly questions this as well as to why someone from their staff is not there at the scene. After all, after Dortmund, what else is currently happening in chess that is higher category than this. And its been a week since Dortmund concluded. Chessbase should ofcourse try and cover the highest category tournament going on at any given week (absolutely nothing to do with Nakamura). Anyway, chessbase has it now, but not before Mig's post came up.

That can be solved i think , which payment you think is respectfull to cover a 24/7 observation of all Tournaments around the World ?

Hell, a lucky draw , hes ready for the >2700 ^^.

You dont need to cover all tournaments around a year. To cover the highest category of that week in the world is definitely something reasonable to expect from chessbase.

My comment was a general one, giving a reason why - for example - Chessbase didn't cover the World Open. Moreover, with the combination of different schedules and time controls, it's a "strange" event by European standards - cf. Mark Crowther on TWIC: "What kind of tournament is this?"
And just two comments on your post: Dortmund finished just two days ago. And your last sentence leaves the impression that Chessbase "finally reacted (complied) after Mig gave them a hint". I am pretty sure that their report took more than a few hours to be completed ... .

Yes my mistake. Dortmund indeed finished just on the 12th. But I do feel, chessbase reacted only after Mig. Its just a cross table and a bunch of pictures up there. Just like how chessbase removed some controversial talks about Susan Polgar on the Pinnochio cartoon pictured article 10 minutes after it was posted (refer to Kapalik's post). They do follow up quickly on what might hinder their site.

The edited Polgar stuff wasn't "controversial" at all, but rather just quoting claims she has made about her own record which fit the category of false claims about chess authors.

Obviously, she knows how to use a lawyer to intimidate, and Chessbase has no spine. How could she claim her own book's dust jacket was defamatory if reprinted by Winter?

Yet another loss for Karpov. I wonder if this will motivate him to work on his chess or persuade him to retire permanently from vigorous tournament play?
By contrast, Viktor Korchnoi was still a world class player when he was Karpov's age.

They have two regular contributors playing on the female group (Anastasia Karlovich + Yana Melnikova), apart from an sporadic organizer and press chief (myself) who used to be a proffesional journalist. I am taking and distributing tons of pictures (the ones on my Flickr set above mentioned are just a small %).

If they don't publish, I don't want to judge the reasons, but it is not because of lacking material.

PS: Mig, the "underwear affair" was off the record!!! ;-)

If decent pictures of bright and smiling women offend you, you can just scroll down to the chess-analysis.

I think I saw some pictures of men too. But maybe they were good in chess.

Out of the ordinary ... as in, not part of the regular schedule. Most likely in this context it means that the General Assembly met in a special session.

News Flash for the Flashman (Henry): Nakamura is currently #17 in the world (live ratings) and moving up (http://chess.liverating.org/).

For some reason the Chess Press in general (with the pleasant exception of the Wise and Knowledeable Migstradamus) has ignored Hikaru Nakamura's success. Fortunately he seems to have a good head on his shoulders about it and is taking the right approach: If you concentrate on your performance, the rest will take care of itself.

OMG - I just saw the results for San Sebastian today (7/14/2009). Karpov's sitting on +0 = 2 -5(2396 perf. rating) with only two rounds left to go. Somebody stop the fight! This is sad and terrible. I hope he can win at least one game and stop the bleeding. Hard to imagine that he was one of the best two or three World Champions ever.


1) Chessbase does not need advice on how to run chess news items. They did not get to the top by leaving anyone out. Fortunately, they do not listen to any of the readers here.

2) Kramnik does not need advice on when to draw or not. Some here would have you believe he never won a game before becoming world champion. This idiotic rumor is perpetuated by Mig, no doubt to please Kasparov, who still cannot get over the fact he lost their match.

3) Female chess players are incapable of winning. Our regular contributions here have already noted that they are fairly ugly, too. If Chessninja readers would leave their one-room apartments more often or stop living with their mothers, they would notice this.


Kasparov will never get over it, of course.

But Mig's treatment of Kramnik has been remarkably even-handed for some time now.

@noyb: Korchnoi was the exception, not the rule.

@Thomas: The World Open is strange by American standards.

Depends on what you see as "Chess Press." I have interview Nakamura three times and have written a number of articles on him including an exclusive interview at the World Open.

My point is... the information is out there. If people view only a few site, then they will miss a lot of other information.

Daaim, as you've talked to Nakamura about Chessbase could you expain why or in what way he thinks they're snubbing him? As far as I can see they've covered most of the tournaments he's done well in lately and haven't had anything negative to say (quite the opposite).

I don't really agree with you about European chess being Chessbase's niche. It's just that, besides the odd "pictorial report" (and some are very odd), they essentially cover top level chess - and if there aren't top tournaments in say Africa or North America then you shouldn't be surprised if they have little or nothing to say about those areas. They also have almost nothing to say about, for example, English chess. I'm sure that reflects the interests of 90% of their readers around the world, but it does mean there's a gap in the market for covering lower level local chess, which websites like yours can exploit.


I'm not concerned that they don't cover Africa, Caribbean or any other region. I have not made that point... in fact I've made the opposite point. They have no obligation because have a totally different focus... there is nothing wrong with that. That is why there are a multitude of chess sites of every flavor. Certainly if ChessBase covers that niche then they should be consistent. That is the argument here.

My focus is not "lower-level" chess. What I cover are human interest stories that show the universality of chess. I also cover the Olympiad (on site), World Championships, Linares, Corus, but also cover news in the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and try to run stories where there is a celebration of chess... intriguing stories that are often missed or ignored.

However, this thread is about ChessBase. They have a niche (that is exactly what it is) and they focus on pictorial reports on selected major tournaments in Europe, professional chess and mostly the top 20 players. They don't do spot reporting of say weekend tournaments in England, but will cover a major tournament there. There is no staff for that type of reporting. The other reports they get are contributed and those have increased in number over the past 3-5 years.

That is what they have... so chess fans can either make a contribution and make it better, create another site or say nothing and enjoy whatever ChessBase has. If you use an RSS feed from about 10 sites, then the chess palate should be satisfied.

Seemed to me Chessbase's comments on Polgat implied pretty clearly that the comments on her dustjacket weren't true, rather than just reprinting it.

Not that I'm interested enough to check whether they're true or not, mind you, but I didn't myself notice any untruths in them. Has she won four world championship matches, for example? Wouldn't surprise me, but I don't keep count. She was surely the top-ranked woman in the US at one time, was she not? I wouldn't be surprised if she still was.

Well, most of that seems fair enough. I wouldn't emphasise Europe too much as they cover China, Mexico, Argentina, the outer reaches of the Russian empire etc. as long as there's a top-level tournament there (but I suppose you've covered that by specifying top-20).

I'd still be interested in hearing Nakamura's specific complaints about Chessbase.

ChessBase actually COVERS Europe and top tournaments. They get their boots on the ground, take pics, file stories and do interviews at these venues. The other reports (Mexico, Iran, China) are from contributors around the world who want some exposure.

These are not ChessBase writers preparing these reports, so if they didn't send these reports, ChessBase probably wouldn't have the time to report tournaments in these regions. Why did they wait until two rounds remaining to cover Donostia?? Don't know.

Again, the key is to go to specific sites and not just one expecting all stories to be there. People forget what type of organization ChessBase is... they sell software. So chess fans need to widen their menu selection.

Nakamura doesn't have complaints against ChessBase... he may believe it is the other way around.

"I didn't myself notice any untruths in them. Has she won four world championship matches, for example?"

No, only one. I think she counts some more or less official blitz and rapid events as well.

"Why did they wait until two rounds remaining to cover Donostia?? Don't know."

The answer is they didn't!! They published an English report after round 2 and covered it in Spanish from round 1. There's no earthly reason why they wouldn't want to cover the tournament - after all, it's in an interesting location with top players as well as a photogenic women's tournament - Nakamura and the US interest is an added bonus. I'd guess they were just a bit lapse when it came to translating the Spanish.

"Nakamura doesn't have complaints against ChessBase... he may believe it is the other way around."

You're repeating your implications - on another thread you said: "Nakamura has told me about the slight from ChessBase, but my view is there are other sites." But what slight? When? And why? I'm genuinely curious. I can't see why they'd be against him, or any proof of that in their coverage.

For what it's worth, my examples (Mexico, Argentina, China) were all places where Chessbase HAS had people on the ground - i.e. the World Championship tournaments and the Nanjing tournament. Actually, it's possible they had no-one on the ground for the latter, but really with the internet it makes very little difference. The point is their coverage is dictated by the chess, not the geography. Of course it's worth checking other sites, but I'm sure I'm not alone in checking those other sites for exactly the same reason I check Chessbase - to follow the top players.

Indeed, Chessbase (English version) had reports on San Sebastian after round 2 and round 6. For comparison, Chssvibes had reports after rounds 2, 4 and 7 (BTW, they also have pictures of pretty women, including Firuza Kasimdzhanova ,:) ).
Which sites had more detailed (daily) coverage? Spanish Chessbase and various American sites, for obvious reasons (As I cannot read Russian, I don't know how much attention Russian sites pay to the tournament).
BTW, complaining that Anastasia Karlovich doesn't provide daily reports for Chessbase is almost the same as complaining that Nakamura's blog was updated only twice during the tournament ,:).

And a Canadian BTW: I just checked, Dina Kagramova is #3 on the Canadian women's ELO list (for a total of eight rated players). While it says more about the state of women's chess in Canada, from a Canadian perspective she is "more than just a pretty face". Her ELO is actually 2093 (now correctly mentioned in the Chessbase article. So here Chessbase or, more likely, their source was initially wrong (mixing up FIDE and national rating?).
That being said, Chessbase likes pretty faces because at least part of their audience likes seeing them ... .

"(As I cannot read Russian, I don't know how much attention Russian sites pay to the tournament)."

Chesspro.ru and crestbook.com both have the tournament up on their homepage - and the results, scores, schedule etc. are updated daily (they may even have the moves live), but there's no in-depth coverage or articles (except one analysis of a Svidler game). They both have forums where you can discuss the tournament. Crestbook currently gives more prominence to the upcoming Biel.

Chessdom has daily reports.
It looks like Karlovich is sending daily articles to Chessbase and the Spanish editor promptly translates.

My point again... get an RSS feed and you won't have to check a bunch of sites. The information is delivered to you in a feed from various sites. Problem solved!

Certainly ChessBase covered the World Championships (in Mexico and Argentina), but that is like saying they covered Dubai or Bahrain because a major tournament is there. That is not the issue. It has a particular focus and that it is primarily Europe, most top tournaments and the top 20 players in the world.

Being on the ground makes a lot of difference in chess coverage... trust me. You cannot always do an adequate job merely from your home on the Internet. Of course, it is much more difficult to cover events on the ground, but the information is so much richer. Nevertheless, I understand your other points.

In the final analysis, ChessBase does a service when they could normally focus on selling software. Their news page is merely a magnet for increasing their brand awareness and they've done well. They have select news items and it is presented in a cogent format. The collection of chess sites (some have been mentioned) do a good job in giving a cross-section of information on various events.

So you're still not going to elaborate on your Nakamura and Chessbase comments? Don't worry, I won't ask again :)

I think we're talking at cross purposes on the other issues too (e.g. my point was exactly "like saying they covered Dubai or Bahrain because a major tournament is there"), but it's not important. I sometime use RSS feeds, by the way, but there's no "problem solved!", seeing as there was no problem in the first place. Browsing a few sites is a pastime, not a burden, though I suppose it's different if you're checking things out in order to update your own website.

Apparently ChessBase finds, er, "chest pieces" more important than chess pieces.

IMHO, it was a nice report. It was not their only report from San-Sebastian, so I really do not see a problem. ChessBase website is not the USCF website after all.

Hey Chessbase!

No report about the Biel tournament on your English page since round 6. Are you all drunk?


Deutsche seite:

GM-Turnier in Biel: Runde 9
Text und Fotos: Pascal Simon

Die vorletzte Runde kann den Grundstein für den späteren Turniersieg legen. Tabellenführer Maxime Vachier-Lagrave hatte aber vielleicht zu viel Respekt vor Boris Gelfand und war mit einem schnellen Remis zufrieden. Genau wie Gelfand, der damit zwei Mal hintereinander nach wenigen Zügen Remis machte.

Gute Chancen auf den Turniersieg rechnete sich auch Vassily Ivanchuk aus, der vor der neunten Runde gemeinsam mit Vachier-Lagrave an der Spitze lag. Doch Ivanchuk hatte es mit Alexander Morozevich zu tun, der bislang eine sagenhafte niedrige Remisquote von nur 25 % aufweist. Damit ist Morozevich an 66 % aller entschiedenen Partien beteiligt.

Was allerdings noch kein Grund ist, es mit der Brechstange zu versuchen, wie Ivanchuk es tat. Er opferte einen Turm für Mattangriff, der allerdings nicht durchschlug und Morozevich zu einem weiteren Sieg verhalft. Damit kann Morozevich wieder hoffen, Vachier-Lagrave doch noch einzuholen.

Die längste Partie des Tages spielten Caruana und Alekseev. Nach einem interessanten eröffnungstheoretischen Duell entwickelte sich reges Figurenspiel. In der Hoffnung auf die Kraft seines h-Bauern gab Alekseev Material und tatsächlich musste Caruana einen ganzen Turm geben, um den h-Bauern aufzuhalten. Doch sein Springer und seine Freibauern am Damenflügel hätten Caruana fast noch zum Sieg verholfen. Doch Alekseev verteidigte sich genau und rettete sich nach hartem Kampf noch ins Remis.

Bitte kein deutsch posten, sonst hätten wir bald russisch, franzözisch usw. I think it's pretty much agreed that English is the language of this blog, otherwise soon we'd have Babel, and I didn't like that film.
