Carlsen, Anand,dog-dentures and other mediocrities
Talent is what supposedly makes us humans so very special… and thus unique from the other animals lower down on the food chain.
But I must ask: IS the entertainment-value/talent of Anand and Carlsen that we have seen so far so very special or unique in today’s world?
I say no (!)…atleast, from what we have seen up to now. There is also plenty of evidence to back this up! We are not getting our dólar’s value…
The COLD WAR is over…Fischer is long dead… chess has virtually disappeared from mainstream media. Isn’t this a crisis?
Don’t even dream that some pretended chess rivalry between emerging powers like India and Norway can cut the mustard! Neither are chess super-powers! Let both Carlsen or Anand themselves prove that they are unique !
Four medíocre draws is not good enough for the world they live in…there is LOTS of other talent out there more worthy of their sponsors’ money! Talent is not in short supply…The world deserves better from us chessplayers
…it demands the VERY best efforts in EVERY World Championshp match! Neither Carlsen nor Anand have delivered…so far.
