We have access to a small number of sensory boards and are broadcasting the top three games in the FIDE Open each round. This new DGT LiveChess Cloud format is best viewed with Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Opera, but it doesn't work so well with IE11. To select the games for each round, click on one of the above links, then click on the header above the board view.
