Garry Kasparov Training Magnus Carlsen


News broke today that former World Champion Garry Kasparov, widely seen as the greatest chess player in history, has been training 18-year-old Magnus Carlsen, currently ranked #4 in the world and one of the most likely contenders for the world title. ChessBase quotes Espen Agdestein, who sums it up nicely: "This is the king training his crown prince." Here are some links, and I will add to them as more stories emerge.

ok. it's he. It's because he's so different from usual. =)
This is becoming exciting: Topalov, Anand and Carlsen.
Good battles are coming.
