The 10th and 11th round of the Schachbundesliga take place 25th and 26th of February 2012. Venues Wattenscheid, Hockenheim, Trier and Remagen.

In Wattenscheid the host awaits Dortmund, Muelheim and Katernberg for the four matches of the weekend. All teams are situated in the Ruhr area of Germany, so many spectators are expected to visit the games. While three of the teams are ranked in the midfield of the table Dortmund is fighting against relegation.

Hockenheim, one of the promoted teams in the Schachbundesliga, organizes his second playing weekend of the season. The matches against Hamburg and Berlin surely will be hard-fought. Especially Hamburg plays against relegation and needs every point. Eppingen is the fourth team at this playing venue. The team of southwest Germany is fighting for the title and is odds-on favourite in the matches against Hamburg and Berlin.

The German champion, OSG Baden-Baden, will play in Trier. These two clubs are expected to win their matches against the two promoted teams Dresden and Berlin-Tegel. A surprise at this venue is unlikely since the elo-difference between the teams is very high.

Probably the most interesting venue of the 10th and 11th round is Remagen. First of all the host is fighting against relegation though the team is peperred with many grandmasters. And secondly the top match of the weekend takes place in Remagen, when on Sunday Bremen will face Solingen. Whereas Bremen is fighting for the championship, Solingen aims a place under the top three in the final ranking.

Playing venue: Assembly hall of the comprehensive school Remagen, Goethestr. 43, 53424 Remagen
