My pleasure trysts, this interview was done March 2010 by "The German Weekly News Magazine".
I don't like the part where he says he's a Real Madrid fan, but the rest of the article was very informative!
Live ratings aren't official. Though likely he will, it would take a rather spectacular collapse at this point to stop it from happening.
Yes, he will. If not this month, then soon. Is only a matter of time now. For all Kasparov's strengths, he never displayed the consistency Carlsen has shown us. I swear, that guy is a machine. He practicaly never loses.
Not detracting from Carlsen, who is brilliant and maybe reaching a new level, but regarding consistency, Kasparov for over 15 years had the same consistent results that Carlsen has had just for 3/4 years.
I would argue, though, that Carlsen has stronger opposition today than Kasparov did in those years. For example, Kramnik defeated Gary Kasparov in the 2000 title match; clearly, Kramnik was a tough nut to crack for him. And yet Magnus has a much higher rating than even Kramnik. In other words, Magnus is 50 points better than the guy who took the world championship away from Kasparov.
Y'all know, right, that Carlsen could blow out his shoulder and never pitch again, right?
Kershaw's got a ways to go yet to match Koufax.
Well, nobody is perfect, not even Carlsen: he is a Real Madrid fan.
Koufax might never have matched Koufax if not for a Dodger scout who happened to be watching his own team in spring training. He noticed that Koufax was trying to throw so hard he was taking his head back so far he took his eye off the plate.
It was when Koufax corrected for this that he gained real control in addition to his frightening speed, and began setting records.
Well, it's official now. Magnus Carlsen's going 2851+ now, whether he wants to or not!
Folks are tolking about him being 2900 by next spring.
Kinda doubt that, though. Magnus draws too much. And he will be dropping major points drawing a "mere 2750."
The guy at around 9 minutes says - "he has a very deep understanding of chess." Really?!? Thanks for letting us know :D
He probably just means it sticks out in particular.
Yeah, Magnus does have a decent amount of draws, though not in the 2012 London . Of course, he is probably having an above average tournament. If he could perform like this all the time, using the performance calculation, he would literally be above 3000
mr ivanchuk is also a real madrid fan
Which would explain why he refused to take that drug test.......
Sad and depressing to see experience destroyed so badly by youth. It's not fair.
Anand will soon say he wants to spend more time with his family and retire.
and no chess player is perfect, not even Houdini 3...
