   Feb-12-13 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
selfmate: <VaselineTopLove> Interesting analysis. On the monetary side, championship match money is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for a chess player. Nothing else even comes close. Even if Anand managed to come in first at a supertournament (something he's been having great
   Jan-27-13 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2013 (replies)
selfmate: Just realized my comment above is a little off. Should read <WHILE I tend to agree with you...>
