Where did the time go? Seems like only yesterday we raised up a cheer to the beginning of 2011.
What did chess do this year?
The top grandmaster this year is Magnus Carlsen. His rating is 2826, the second highest peak rating EVER. This is his second year in a row being #1. He first became a grandmaster at age...13!!!!

Have a terrific 2011...oops, I mean 2012! (where did time go?)
