    @M.K.D. from what agadmator said, carlsen is more a positional player, which would more like the immovable object while kasparov is more an offensive player.

    How often does Gary and Magnus play the chess 960? Do they have to practice up, adjust before hand? Is the strategy, to get the board to Norman play or try to control with the 960 position. Surprised Gary Kasparov got to the normal board ASAP. Unless Magnus has the advantage with 960 chess.

    Interesting game. Carlsen had a more harmonious position throughout most of it - his light-squared bishop on c6 was a monster, and after he played Rf8, Carlsen looked to be all but winning. However, after some inaccurate moves, Magnus had an uncharacteristically weak finish, allowing the characteristically pugnacious Kasparov to claw his way back to equality and secure a draw. It was a testament to the former champion's fight and determination

    Not any good game at all. The pieces were in interesting positions but still no rule book to comply too. The queen must still move one parsec if it is to be a chess game. If you open you're queen to the opponent's side of the board, you still have to take the pawn that is put to you. Your game is nothing. there really isn't a true understanding of the nature of a game of tactical strategy. Both are not that good.

    @DFTA (Don't Feed The Animals) The only computer chess I ever played was on a physical chess computer with an actual board and pieces (Tandy 1650), and yes, if you moved the king two squares either way, it knew you had castled. But that was in the '90s and I don't know how online or PC or Mac chess works now.

    Jesus was born to a virgin, turned water to wine, taught, healed the sick, raised the dead, casted out demons, walked on water, and calmed the storm, among many other things. He was killed, and three days later He rose from the dead. Forty days later He ascended into heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father. He is returning very soon, but before He does, Satan, the devil, is coming to pretend to be Jesus. Satan is an angel, and he will have certain supernatural powers with which to try to fool everyone. He will, for example, be able to make fire come down from heaven in the sight of men. He will only be on earth a short time before the real King of Kings, Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, returns. When the real Jesus comes we will all be transformed into our spiritual bodies at the same moment. Jesus came to offer forgiveness of sins and eternal life to anyone who believes and calls on His precious name. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; - Romans 3:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. - Romans 6:23 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. - John 3:16-18 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together. - Psalm 34:3 Help spread the message: Bitcoin: bc1qqcqzm37znaf75gt7zvx5f69wxysfceeap8sf2c Etherium: 0xe0529397D57Da1EE52D3Dd8e29CD8661F84fC984 Dash: XfRiyQdQ88MPSY1EYx4dL5N5y3DrvVJ1dL Litecoin: ltc1qsj2dfgdkjlqms2p867l64sudufleu97jh7r444 Ripple: rpe6aDZ4YiCzRiuNhtw3wnxdmzXsZvaKPK Stellar Lumens: GDIBRYVWTDD5APWDARAFHBF5S36D7YCPQRJG7GZ6A54TVPYRFD5DFCMC Buy cryptocurrencies here:
