    BTW, the ratings I mentioned regarding The recent World Championships in Rapid and Blitz were those calculated by the tournament organizers due to their matches so far (in the case of Caruana's 3400 in the Rapid, he had won all his matches so far which were against strong GMs, until he came up against Carlsen. After losing to Carlsen, he lost a series of games).

    And all shall kneel before the computer, for it shall be the era of the rise of the machines...does the sci-fi movie go something like that?Undecided

    Sport between humans shall always exist, no matter what level computers/robots reach. The future for humans in chess is bright and long!SmileCool

    BTW why does Dilbert make so much fun of Albania (which is thinly disguised as Elbonia)?Undecided

    Hey_Man

    I would like to thank all the participants in this discussion stream for helping me take the comments past the 100 mark. I could not have done it without the support of my parents (without their coming together, not only would this have not been possible, but I would not have been possible). The people that have come in and out of my life, as unbeknownst to them, their best characteristics kept giving me the push to make the effort to become a better person. I would specially like to thank the women who have graced my life with their presence and their love, as they taught me to be grounded and self-sufficient/innovative (after all that is what really women want in a man) and appreciate the differences between our two sexes. Finally, I would like to thank the detractors in my life, whose doubts in my abilities only increased my drive and determination.SmileCool

    LOL, take a chill pill buddy! And since this is a discussion group, qualify your statement with some structured/critical thinking.

    Then Chess is much stronger in India than in Norway. We have one sportgymnasium with chessclass  but no economic help to chessplayers at any level, except for that the clubs gets a minor donation from Norsk Tipping, and maybe some support from the community?

    Magnus is the one who brought chess to the newspapers and the media. Norwegian medias loves sensations, and Magnus has been sensational more than a decade. This mediaboost is giving Norwegian chess  fresh wind.

    Just goes to show that we should appreciate genius even more. It is more a product of serendipity than design. Even though Russia and India have a stronger chess/maths culture than most countries, the chess greats like Capablanca (Cuba), Fischer (U.S.A.) etc. came from not so historically strong chess countries. See my comment #89, as I already mentioned your observation. You do have to realize that the population of India is more than 1.1 Billion, while Norway is much less. Thus, for anything to succeed nationally in India, it requires much more organization, resources (money, people, equipment etc.) and time. Add to this the many cultural/language differences (India has 15 official languages with over 2200 dialects, the largest for any country) and economic disparities, you can see how difficult it is to make anything a national success (but much easier to make something a local success at the State level).
