Now living in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, I grew up in several places in Canada and the U.S. as my father was in the Canadian navy. I learned chess at 12 and played in high school and the RA club in Ottawa, but my rating never rose above 1500. I've come back to playing only recently (I'm now in my 50's, born the same year as Kevin Spraggett).

Now I live and work in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Not much opportunity to play here yet, but I'm hoping.

PhilFeeley: <Can't wait to go again! @chess24com #MagnusInvite> So make another one already! I'm sure the others would love to try again. coronavirus isolation is still in effect, right? Let's have another online tournament.

PhilFeeley: Coughing is already happening, both Vachier-Lagrave and Carlsen. If one of the players gets sick, will they cancel the rest of the matches?

PhilFeeley: No one from the U.S. or Canada playing in this (maybe at lower levels)? And where are the Brits or the French, Germans or Spanish? This doesn’t look as strong as even last year. Where’s Kamsky? <jith1207> Great summary. I look forward to lots of exciting chess this year.

PhilFeeley: <HeMateMe> He had several players over 2000, and some more over 1800, so I think the answer to your question is “No”.
