|May-03-04|| ||Vischer: um RL900 Carlsen is the worlds 2nd youngest GM. Karjakin became GM at age 12. |
|May-03-04|| ||square dance: <vischer> rl900 is only saying that carlsen is CURRENTLY the youngest gm in the world; i.e. carlsen is younger than karjakin, not that he achieved his last gm norm at a younger age than karjakin. |
|May-03-04|| ||Vischer: oh. BLAH! I am just posting this because it won't let me say just "oh."; to short apparently. |
|May-05-04|| ||ruylopez900: <Vischer> True, it can sound confusing, but if you take it at face value then it makes sense.|
<sd> Thanks for clearing it up.
