I've been playing in the World vs GM games since the Kasparov game Kasparov vs The World, 1999

I enjoyed the privilege of playing on one of the first World teams to defeat a GM DeFirmian vs The World, 2002

I'm looking forward to the Chessgames Challenge games.

A bit of friendly advice for our future opponents:

< You will have to play to win if you want to distinguish yourself from the GM's and World Champions we have defeated or played to a draw. Otherwise, we will simply continue our undefeated streak. >

Enjoy!

DPLeo: <It is unethical to compare Kasparov the great to a boy like Carlsen.> Agreed. There can be no comparison since Carlsen has achieved a higher rating in less time.

DPLeo: Carlsen may have missed a win with 29.Re7 but Vishy only has seconds per move now so it will still be very difficult for him to hold.
