We found this interesting chess quote in the ArmeniaPress. Former World Chess Champion Vladimir Kramnik has said he is sure that he and Levon Aronian are equal competitors for Magnus Carlsen. The Russian “Независимая газета” has an indepth interview with the Russian chess star. The 37-year-old Vladimir Kramnik says the London Chess Candidates 2013 denoted that Magnus Carlsen was also susceptible. “Levon Aronian and I can play an equal game against Magnus. It’s a different issue that he is young, full of energy and has a great desire to win. And if you consider only from the point of chess I think that he is not advantageous against us. I’ll say this way, Carlsen is the improved Karpov," said Kramnik.
We already witnessed the absolutely thrilling London Chess Candidates 2013 where Vladimir Kramnik tied with Magnus Carlsen for first, but lost out on tiebreak criteria.
