From today’s game! Years ago, Korchnoi, after observing the young Carlsen for the first time, remarked that the youngster was an excellent psychologist.

A PIC IS WORTH A 1,000 WORDS….
Click on photo to enlarge. Photo by Mikhail Sholudko. Sochi, today’s boring game from the spectator perspective. It appears that Magnus was not the only one who was bored. I have seen numerous photos of other chess events with spectators sleeping, but this is the first photo where there is a kid who is busy drawing! I love it!
