The Chess Drum’s Highlights of 2010!

The year of 2010 has come to an end and we usher 2011. Before we leave 2010, let’s reflect a bit on this past year. In the year of an Olympiad, World Championship (both men and women) and several elite tournaments, it turned out to be an exciting year. The Chess Drum was able to cover some of these events and it is with great pleasure that we give a recap of some of the noted events throughout the year. This list is taken from the 196 briefs written this year. Enjoy! Happy New Year!
