  Penguincw: Here's one site relating to this tournament:
Oct-19-14  jphamlore: Will Anatoly Karpov play a game in the Bundesliga this season?
Oct-19-14  waustad: Thank you <Penguincw> for the link. There is also this one which is of use: which includes some info on the Frauenbundesliga and the Oberliga teams too. A similar site to the one you mention, specifically for the FBL is
Oct-20-14  waustad: Die Zeit has an article on changes that have been made for this season (in German):
Oct-20-14  PhilFeeley: I don't suppose <> could put up a real table of results. It's getting to be that I can't trust any of their tables at all.
Oct-21-14  jphamlore: Why is the Bundesliga so underhyped relative to other chess competitions? Is it the sheer number of games?
Nov-10-14  waustad: It looks like Rapport got lucky in round four. The comp has him dead lost but his opponent accepted a draw.
Nov-26-14  whiteshark: Rounds 3+4+7(already partly played) have been uploaded (games 129-280). TY guys for this ppt delivery. ;)

Dec-09-14  waustad: There seem to be two copies of Almasi vs Ragger.
Dec-24-14  waustad: The single round weekend (7) has been played already for most of the teams. The last two teams will play on January 30th.
Feb-26-15  L13: Haven't there been 6 new rounds since this page was last updated or something?
Mar-01-15  whiteshark: <L13> I while ago I sent r(7)+8+9 games and a few days ago the latest r10+11 games. I'll wait another week before I'll ask them again...
Mar-01-15  whiteshark: btw, you can download all games here:
Mar-13-15  L13: Thank you for the link, <whiteshark>! I don't have a problem finding the games elsewhere, though; I'm just wondering why Chessgames seems to be neglecting such a strong championship.

In any event, there's a new round tomorrow.
