    Magnus has been a champion at rapid chess (too) for a few years.
    God exists. Short and to the point.

    Don't these sites believe in crosstables?
    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”
    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    Winners are grinners!

    I didn't realise that Carlsen isn't #1 in rapid ratings (Caurana is).
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    I guess they need to hold World Allegro Championships (hopefully at MCC - the world capital of Allegro chess), then Magnus can add yet another crown.
