Live coverage of exhibition match with old legends Kasparov-Karpov

Well Kasparov did stop not so long ago (2005 i think), but Karpov is in the circuit since very long time, and didn't stop playing tournaments, despite his elo i going down and down.

At the moment the score is 2-0 for an easy Kasparov, it's always interesting to see them playing.

The match is playing in 4 rapid games (25/5) and 8 blitz games.

Finally this ended 3-1 for the rapid and 6-2 for the blitz in favor of Kasparov.

It was clear Karpov had problems with his timing, sure it was an exhibition match, but as players get older generally they play slowly, so this match was a one way match for Kasparov, even if both players showed great moves.

I guess they didn't choose the standard timing in order for the result not to be "official", so that fans of K cannot say that other K is a dumbass.

Anyway i enjoyed this little tournament.
