10th and 11th round of the Schachbundesliga World champion favours the Schachbundesliga

By Georgios Souleidis (Editor Website Schachbundesliga)

In the 10th round the German champion OSG Baden-Baden faces the most serious contender Werder Bremen. It will be the most exciting match in the history of the Schachbundesliga and Viswanathan Anand will join the party.

Both teams will play with their nearly best possible lineup. The elo average of Baden-Baden is 2717 and of Bremen 2679. Both teams will have only Top 100 players from the current worldranking at their disposal. Bremen will play on the first two boards with the "Azerbaijani guys" Vugar Gashimov and Shakhriyar Mamedayrov, both known for their uncompromising style.

Laurent Fressinet and Tomi Nyback will also defend the "green-white coloured". After nine rounds they belong to the five top scorers of the league.

Undoubtedly the biggest attraction of the whole weekend is the world champion Viswanathan Anand. Two months before his match against Veselin Topalov in Sofia he makes a "break" in his preparation to support his team in Germany. Since many years he maintains friendly relations to the environment of Baden-Baden so his appearance doesn´t come as a big suprise.

Etienne Bacrot and the German No. 1 Arkadij Naiditsch will also play for Baden-Baden. They belong to the five best performers of the whole league so far in this season.

Here are the lineups and the pairings of the match Baden-Baden - Werder Bremen:
