    My impressions of the first playing day in Sochi can be summed up in one sentence: great fuss about a single game of chess. It seems to me that's not the way it should be, ideally.

  • More photos from our correspondent Dmitry Ostanin from Stavanger. 

  • An unusual situation: two world team championships starting on the same day in different corners of the world. The best women's teams are in China, and the best men's in Armenia. What distinguished the opening ceremonies of these two events? Which was shorter, which was prettier? Judge for yourselves, with the aid of photos we have taken from the official sites: chengdu2015.fide.com (author - Anastasia Karlovich) and tsaghkadzor2015.fide.com (author unknown).

    Norway has sent many journalists to cover the match. In fact, the Norwegian delegation is the largest here in Sochi.

  • Our photo-correspondent paid another visit to the Russian Team Championship at the Zhemchuzhina Hotel, Sochi.

His hand nevertheless remained steady and his camera intact.
