    This is big - I wish all the best to Sergey Karjakin. Considering his recent performance at Norway Chess he is in form. But guess ChessKa is no walkover. This will be fun. It would be great to watch this chess match live.

    I think ChessKa is invincible as of now. Taking nothing away from Karjakin who is a prodigy and as fine a GM as they come, but well machines are ahead for now. Let's accept it.
