[N.B. For the next few days I will repost this to the top of the page, to make sure everyone sees it and has a chance to sign up, if they're so inclined. By the same token, be sure to check below this - there may well be new posts there.]

A few people have written asking if I will cover the upcoming Magnus Carlsen-Fabiano Caruana match in a way similar to my coverage of the Anand-Carlsen matches in 2013 and 2014, and the Anand-Gelfand match in 2012. I covered those matches on the blog to some extent, but worked up some deep analysis and videos for subscribers, sending both to them by email.

If there is sufficient interest, I'm willing to do it again. If you're willing to pay $30 (or more) for this, please drop me a note via the "Contact Me" box in the right sidebar along with your email address, and if enough people have signed up by the end of Wednesday, Eastern time, I'll send out a note requesting that you go ahead and send that amount to me via PayPal. (The match begins next Friday.) If not enough people are interested, then I won't, and no one will have committed any money.

The feedback I received on my coverage of the earlier matches was very positive, and it's also a way of helping keep this blog going.
