alexmagnus: Well, tecnically it is true. "Dominate" comes from "dominus" - master, lord. Technically winning something is becoming the something's master.

alexmagnus: At 133 moves, this game is the longest decisive game featuring a (past, cuurrent or future) world champion, sharing this distinction with Leko vs Kramnik, 2001 (also a rapid game).
 
   Sep-16-18 Leko vs Kramnik, 2001
 
alexmagnus: <This game was rapid without increment, so there's little point discussing the chess value of the last few moves....> Given the move numbers, it would be extreme zeitnot even in a classical game.

alexmagnus: This 1999 Norwegian U11 championship was his first ever tournament, so he was unrated.

  alexmagnus: Most new grandmaster titles in a year were awarded in 2007 - 91.

But what was the year in which most GMs died? Turns out, three years share the distinction of being deadliest GM years - 2000, 2005 and 2016, in each of which 10 GMs died.
