The Internet in the Sheraton hotel was not very fast. It would take hours for me just to upload long videos. Therefore, I will upload more videos, pictures and post about many things that went on in Mexico City as soon as I am back in Texas.
The players were very happy with the playing conditions. The fans were absolutely wild. Everyone said that they have never witnessed more enthusiastic fans in chess.
I had exclusive interviews with all 8 players. In the upcoming week, I will also give my impression of each player as well as the good and not so good things about this World Championship.
Here are some quick statistics:
– On the last day, there were about 1.5 million hits to just the main website of the World Championship, not counting other coverage.
– There were people from 185 countries visited the website.
