Does anyone know if the World Chess Blitz Championship for Chess Robots in Moscow is going to be streamed over the web? Sounds really cool and I'd like to see it.

Appears unlikely given it does not even appear that there's a website for the event, just press releases that were posted to weblogs like the one you linked too. Here's archival video of "Vladimir Kramnik vs Robot" for anyone interested in viewing the game play; just in case you thought a robot play a person is boring, watch the robot "attack" Kramnik, he almost loses his hand.

    I sent an email to a contact at Moscow Chess and got a reply that said they were not able to broadcast live but will be posting videos of the event soon.

  • +1 @Desroska: Hope this year the camera doesn't act all crazy; video linked to above has very odd "special" effects added. Awesome job emailing Moscow Chess!
