   Jan-28-13 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
sapfy: In relation with the Cap d'Agde 2006 rapid tournament, where Karpov, Karjakin and Carlsen all took part, Karpov, in an interview on the official site, when asked to compare Karjakin and Carlsen basically said (and I paraphrase, because I can't recall the exact wording) that he found ...

sapfy: <researchj: while idolizing Magnus, let's not forget the 13 years old chinese girl who may win the women's title in a few days.> She's closer to 15 than 13 actually.
