US Chess League

We're a bit behind with this - what with the Zonals and all.

The US appear to be laying the foundations of an exciting league competition. The inaugural matches occured on 31 August. For chess diehards Down Under the games are relayed on ICC.

Our mate over at Boylston is probably the fastest source of info. And introducing a whole new concept, to me anyway, live blogging coverage of week 3.

I believe live blogging originated with the political blogs. For example, they provided minute-by-minute coverage of news conferences and speeches during the Iraq war and 2004 Presidential campaign.

I have experimented with the format once before while watching an episode of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" which had a chess-related storyline. Check it out here.
