Great article. Thanks.

OMG i lost to a lower ranked player !! ( pouts ) .you..you cheater !..a physic says your cheating...so there.....and its MY chess board, im taking it and going home
My favorite part:
"He has also discovered that the way people play has evolved. According to his analysis, the player now ranked No. 40 in the world plays as well as Anatoly Karpov did in the 1970s, when he was world champion and was described as a machine."
Though I would like to see how he determined this, it doesn't surprise me. I have asserted similiar in several threads around here. Imporved training methods, earlier starts, and a larger pool of talent to pick from: chess players today are better than players from previous decades. Fischer from 1972 put in a time machine would struggle just to make it into the candidates tournament.
Interesting article. Thx.
Very interesting, thanks.
