Rolfo
Member since Aug-24-06 · Last seen Jan-31-15
I am far more a chess lover than chess player, from North of Norway. My chess interest got a first surge when Fisher and Spassky battled for the title. Since then I have read chess history and bio's on most champions and other notable chess characters.

I started to follow Magnus Carlsen's play about 10 years before he became Champion, feeling he had the right things with him. I have seen him play live both in Tromsų and London. The internet has made it possible to follow the games live, and it is a blessing.

Else I have seen man landing on the moon, and that Europe and the World changed a lot since 1989.

Rolfo: On the next challenger. We will not know till end of March 2016 when the next Candidates has ended. A long time and the picture may change by then. There could emerge a challenger of a new generation, but I am not convinced. May be Grischuk or Caruana then, or even Nakamura. I think ...

Rolfo: Anand won allright. He is just as good. He has accepted that probably there is only one who is clearly better and that he can deal with everyone else

Rolfo: Hasn't Kirsan already announced that next Candadates tourney is to be held in the US? And then the wild card will go to Nakamura if he isn't qualified by merits
