    Super cool. Chess960 is fun. I play online when I am too tired playing the classical version. Just heard Magnus Carlsen too say that it would be more popular in the future.

    Why did the title not say four pretty girls and a guy? Are you ignoring the World Champion from India?

    Apologies @Srinivasan that was not intended. Actually the video was about the Women's Championship. The photo was about the autograph signing. Of course we hold the sentiments of all chess fans and the former World Champion as all other Champions in high esteem. Thank you for writing to us. YOU make the chess blog special.
