1) Introduction

My thanks to Roland Wimmer, Olexandr Prohorov, Luiz Roberto Da Costa Jr, Zoltan Budai, Miklos Orso, Lennart Ootes, Gabriel Manuel Marques i Esquerdo, Michael Gratze, Mitko Iliev, David Navara, Dragan Babic, Heinz Herzog and everyone else who helped with this issue.

The FIDE World Cup in Tashkent is still wide open after 6 of the 11 rounds. Dmitry Andreikin and Hikaru Nakamura lead at the moment and joint winners of the Baku Grand Prix Fabiano Caruana and Boris Gelfand are still struggling. Plenty to play for. Plenty of strong chess elsewhere including the American Continental, Hou Yifan winning in Corsica, Chinese Zonal and the promise of an exciting Tata Steel tournament in January with the return of Carlsen and an interesting field.

TWIC turned 20 on September 17th. You can read my article 20 years of TWIC. which includes a full listing of all issues including all the texts. I have all the PGNs but that's a very large file but a ChessBase cbv archive format can be bought for £30 which will help me head out from this landmark. The cost of TWIC is basically my wage so any support would be very welcome as it's very tough surviving on pure advertising, although that has been essential too and I thank them too.

If you also wish to donate to help me keep TWIC going and move it forward then you can do so via PayPal at:

Send a £30 donation via Paypal and contact me via email (Email Mark Crowther - I'll send you an address for a ChessBase cbv file of my personal copy of every issue of the games in one database.

Hope you enjoy this issue.

The very strong German Schachbundesliga takes place Sat 18th Oct 2014 to Sun 12th Apr 2015. The next rounds are Friday 7th November for the first of the split round 7 (a retrograde step in my view, rather than finishing with three rounds they split one round in this very untidy way I can only think that there are financial considerations) and November 8th and 9th for rounds 3-4.
