24 ( +1 | -1 ) chess videosCan anyone tell me where I can get videos of actual chess games played by the top players. i know it sounds boring but I would just like to see some people play who really know what they are doing.VHS DVD whatever
81 ( +1 | -1 ) not sureI am not sure if there are actually videos of just people playing a game. For the most part chess is really just sitting around and thinking. There is not a lot of action so most times you have strong masters (ie GM or IM) commenting on the game. If you would like to see people play you might try the local chess club. AZ has a few good ones (are you in a large city) any club that has a master in it (2200 uscf) by definition has someone that knows what they are doing. To see super strong players such as GM's and IM's you generally need to hit the big tournaments or get lucky. ( I have seen some super IM's in the 90's like Ivanov and Shirazi drop in to week end tourney's to get some quick cash.) As a final suggestion you might try a local library to see if they have tapes of the Karpov-Kasparov matches.
