Just a brief visit, I've yet to finish reading all the news but there isn't much "good" in most of it.
First, it appears that Magnus Carlsen is not a Borg machine-man after all, he actually lost a chess game, to a 16 year old Indian kid, no less. GASP! I couldn't help but laugh at the headline of this article, from The New York Times morning online edition today:
16-Year-Old Chess Prodigy Defeats World Champion Magnus Carlsen
While it did not affect the reigning champion's title, Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa of India defeated Carlsen in the middle of the night during a rapid online tournament, stunning the chess world.
