Chess, potpourri and other nonsense!
TODAY IS INTERNATIONAL YOGA DAY!
Ouch! Just looking at this makes my body hurt!
Carlsen FINALLY wins a game!
It is kind of funny that when the current World Champion actually wins his first game of the Stavanger tournament, it becomes NEWS. Poor Magnus has had his worst start in a tournament in…let me think….EVER! To be fair, Carlsen has become so used to winning virtually every tournament that even the rest of the chess playing world is as surprised as Carlsen is in the tournament!
THIS SPECIAL TALENT HELPED CARLSEN TO WIN TODAY:
GM ERIC HANSEN’S PREDICTIONS
You can follow Eric’s clever predictions HERE. Curiously, the Canadian star is NOT PARTICIPATING at this year’s REDNECK EDMONTON INTERNATIONAL for the second straight year.
To me it makes NO SENSE for the Edmonton organizers to spend so much money attracting WORLD FAMOUS grandmasters like Ivanchuk ,Harikrishna, Wang Hao, Shankland and Ganguly (How much: about $40,000) and NOT have a SINGLE Canadian grandmaster participate!
But, what do I know? Edmonton REDNECKS are known to suck dick bigtime!
Edmonton REDNECKS are the most FRIENDLY (meaning: passively bi-sexual) community in North America!
