Check out the old guy's tattoos. Pretty intimidating! I wouldn't argue over misplaced pieces with this fellow. In the opening seconds, he says to the younger opponent, "It's called Russia, not Soviet".
Note also the Chronos clock that they're using. We've got a couple of these in Hyde Park. Good clock, very durable construction. I like it because resetting the time is even easier than on the DGTs.
Congratulations on winning the Purdy Medal for Chess Journalism! I really enjoyed reading your live blog on the Dresden Olympiad and look forward to reading your future tournament reports.
