Dec-27-16  notyetagm: Carlsen vs Ganguly, 2016

"Ganguly's reaction when GM Adly showed him how he could have mated @MagnusCarlsen in R1 of #dohachess2016"


Dec-27-16  riyoh: Now you see why Magnus is NOT by far the best.
Dec-27-16  pinoy king: Agreed, riyoh. Carlsen fans will ignore this disastrous game. I would've loved too see Carlsen get angry and cry like like a baby if sir Ganguly found the mate. These sub 2700 Indian GMs are around as strong as Carlsen if not stronger. They just need more opportunities to play.

You are absolutely correct: they are *tremendously* strong.

I wouldn't call the video great, considering we only see Ganguly's back and can only guess his facial expression. But when he walks away we can see him smiling. Good sport.
