    Maybe monterey is a great location, but I don't think they will get the 5 million dollars together + the minimum 1 million dollar price fund that FIDE requires from the organising bid on such short notice

    Monterey's benefactor already has the money.

    If it were really in Monterey, I would absolutely go. I'm a big Anand fan, and six-year-old Cobblepot is a Carlsen fan.

    Plus, tons of people I work with are Anand fans.

    Does your six year old understand Carlsen's moves?

    Maybe it's a generational thing, but I'm baffled.

    Is it difficult for young Carlsen fans to enter the workforce?

    Are all the current managers Anand fans?

    Carlsen requested a postponenment.

    If Carlsen doesn't like Sochi, then maybe he would like Monterey.

    Dear FIDE,

    Please hold the Anand-Carlsen 2014 World Championship match in Monterey, California.  It is a beautiful location.  Anand has many fans in Silicon Valley.  No bids have come in from anywhere else in the world.  The event would be a great success.

    Thank you for your consideration.


    hangin with Anand at the aquarium, and then Saporos.

    Yikes, is waking up on the other side an occasional problem?
