It's time for another World Championship in chess.
No, the world body hasn’t split like in 1993 when Gary Kasparov and Nigel Short broke away from FIDE to set up a separate world championship cycle. Neither it is about the next match in this cycle between Veselin Topalov and Gata Kamsky.
This is the about the World Blitz Chess Championship - the shortest version of the game which could be compared to a Twenty20 match, but a bit speedier.
Krishnan Sasikiran will be India's lone representative in the 16-player World Blitz Championship that will be held at Almaty in Kazakhstan from November seven.
In all 15 rounds will be played in the two-day tournament with players getting five minutes each to complete the game in each round.
Among the top players in contention for a top prize of 80,000 Swiss francs are Alexander Morozevich, newly-crowned Russian champion Peter Svidler, Teimour Radjabov of Azerbaizan, Vassily Ivanchuk of Ukraine and Gata Kamsky of the United States.
