From the 11th to 30th November the Fide World Chess Championship 2016 will be held in New York between Norway’s Magnus Carlsen and Russia’s Sergey Karjakin. There will be a maximum of 12 games and the first to reach a 6.5 score will win the match. If you want to get close to the action and see all the games live there’s no need to go to the expense of booking return flights to New York. As an alternative (but obviously not really the same as being there) you could watch the games at http:///worldchess.com/nyc2016/# about. The site suggests that you will experience the match as if you had a view from any of the best seats in the house, not just one.

For less than the cost of 4 pints of beer you can have access to panoramic views of the playing area and feel close to the action. There will be multiple camera views with commentary by GMs and fans, together with an interactive “Dashboard” giving move predictions, analysis and viewer discussions. An interactive board will enable viewers to play through the moves and try other moves. There will be tracking of the time spent on each move with evaluations. There will also be the opportunity for viewers to chat with other viewers and the experts.
