The Amber super rapid and blindfold tournament is around the half way mark with Aronian in clear first, followed by Anand.

This is a quote from GM Alex Baburin of Chess Today:

“The more I watch this tournament in Nice, the more I tend to agree with Grischuk & Co that classical chess is dead and that the way forward is rapid chess, blitz and, well, blindfold chess!”

Do you agree with it?
