The Chess Variant Pages



Braintv: a Korean Chess TV channel

Changgi is the Korean variant of chess, and is very popular in (South-)Korea. Indeed, the game is so popular that it has its own tv-channel: braintv is dedicated to broadcasts of Korean Chess games, often commented by two presenters: a man and a woman. Occasionally, other games are shown; I noticed a broadcast with comments on a chess game between Kasparov and Karpov. The channel is Korean spoken. The website of the channel is http://www.braintv.co.kr/.

It is also possible to see the broadcasts of the channel online, e.g., via http://nl.timstream.com/964-brain-tv.html.
