Jun-28-16 frogbert: The really amazing thing about Carlsen is that he declined an offer to work with Kasparov when he was 15. Carlsen preferred his own approach to chess training over the one offered by Kasparov and his team.

So's a great talent and a very strong player. And I doubt he'll ever be world champion. It's about confidence and willingness to risk losing - which is required to go for the win.

Jun-28-16 chessalem: <training over the one offered by Kasparov and his team.>

Well, your trainer got squashed like a bug losing 3 games , drawing 2 and winning only once by <so>meone with no coach and trainer since birth.

Jun-28-16 HeMateMe: kaspy wanted to latch onto the next Big Thing, to keep himself in the news as well. Let's get real here...

Jun-28-16 chessalem: <So's a great talent and a very strong player. And I doubt he'll ever be world champion.>

Well, Wesley easily trounced Garry dubbed by many as a great World Champion- this addition to his resume brings us to an inevitable conclusion- ...his time will surely come...

coming to a theater near you... <so>on.

< It's about confidence and willingness to risk losing - which is required to go for the win. >

Wesley emulates "Komodo" the chess engine. He'd rather be <so>lid and error free than wild and lucky.

<wanted to latch onto the next Big Thing>

that's why Magnus collaborated and trained with Wesley <so>me time ago. He paid for his travel expenses, board and lodging just to get his services...

Jun-29-16 Kasparov Fan: OMG a 2016 Kasparov has a dismal score against Wesley"cockroach"so and this idiots are using that as an argument supporting his greatness.You wouldn't be screaming if he was so great.

Jun-29-16 chessalem: <a 2016 Kasparov>

Well, he beat naka (no. 2 best blitz player then) and fabiano ( no. 3 best in the world who just won the US Championship) in their individual blitz match...flashing his old form reminiscent of Kaspy of yore...

Garry's advance years and ring rust were not the cause of his loss to Wesley ...there was none to speak of- i.e. gauging from his performance against the two other participants...

When he came to face to face with Wesley he had consumed voluminous liters of water from the fountain of youth... armed with unlimited ammunition /gunpowder and protected by impenetrable armour made of adamantium molded from the fires of Mt. Doom.

Even then, he was exposed as a mere mortal in the presence of the true chess God...

<After ten years of retirement, Garry was able to put up with 3 top 10 players -- and finish it with a plus score. The kid is good. Kudos.>

A lesson long taught by history...validated up to this day.

But while Garry has not rode into the sunset yet...a new force in the horizon is looming.

Let the commentators tell you the story:

yasser: wow...clap...clap...clap

sexy lady: that game was the game of the ultimate blitz so far
