    He looks more like a gentleman who teaches Matematics ... Btw, he lived in (far out) Ringkøbing and used to go by train every day to Aarhus - after Danish standards a very long ride ... - so you might be right. I'll ask him next time.

    If you NEVER liked Bent Larsen, you might like this video ... With Danish eyes it's a more "tragic" little movie. After the tournament he refused to explain his strange openings in the tournament.

    The text aren't anything special. I couldn't find an English translation, but they are singing about Magnus Carlsen's Rook and that his Rook takes the Queen. At the table they are singing about chess, beer and pizza. And the video ends with the scream: "Are there any chessbabes outside?"

    In my opinion the scoop is that the normal very stiff Simen Agdestein gives so much.

    Does this thread even pretend to have news about Karpov any more?

    I recently seen an video analysis by Karpov of Fisher's 21 Move Brilliancy in which he gives the king's bishop a value of 4.5 points. A similar assessment I had come to so was thrilled about that.

    ↑↑ Yes, that is the sort of post that belongs here. Do you have a link to the video?

    My search this morning also reveal that it is also called the game of the century that you probably know it as. Unfortunately I have been unable to find the version with Karpov's commentary but still checking. I loved the analysis because it backed my claim that the king's bishop is a lot more important than the queen's bishop, backed by a world champ - nothing wrong with that. Now a days they are called light and dark squared bishops but I prefer the old reference of king's or queen's as it actually means something.

    I only come to this conclusion due to noticing that the winning side often had the kings bishop in endgame rather than queen's bishop. Shows I played too much chess and not enough reading of books on chess.
