pbercker: indeed ... gun-slinging of a different sort! But close enough!
   Sep-24-13 Anand - Carlsen World Championship Match (2013) (replies)
pbercker: Speaking of not having peaked yet, this is from the Carlsen page (hope this doesn't count as cross-posting!): <EGarrett: As I write this, Magnus is 22 years, 10 months old, and is rated 2870. When Kasparov was 22 years, 9 months (January 1986), he had a rating of 2720. He was ...
