It happens in Magic and inevitably the person gets caught cheating again, wouldn’t surprise me if the same thing happened here.

    All the more reason for him to leave the affectations of prior loser generations behind and try something new.

    Holy sh-t.

    Magnus Carlsen, who has been ranked the No. 1 chess player in the world since 2011, announced Wednesday he will not defend his world championship title.

    "The conclusion is very simple that I am not motivated to play another match," the five-time world champion said on his podcast, The Magnus Effect. The championship matches are held every two years and the next is scheduled for 2023.

    "I simply feel that I don't have a lot to gain," Carlsen added. "I don't particularly like it, and although I'm sure a match would be interesting for historical reasons and all of that, I don't have any inclinations to play and I will simply not play the match."

    So, former Ukrainian now Russian GM Sergey Karjakin just got himself canceled. He had been tweeting support for Putin, but his tweets were also laughing emojis in response to stories of Ukrainian deaths. His Twitter account is now removed and entire chess community is basically telling him to DIAF.

    I loved how his reaction was he just wanted to go to bed, since he was up so late due to the time difference.

    Carlsen did say he felt he was feeling the aftereffects of Covid, after coming down with it shortly before the tournament. Still, a fantastic result for the up and comer. An international master at 10. That's just absurd.

    There's a new kid in town.

    India’s teenage chess grandmaster Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa has won praise for a stunning victory over world number one Magnus Carlsen in an online championship.

    Praggnanandhaa, 16, who in 2016 became the youngest international master in history at age 10, beat Carlsen late on Monday at the ... Masters rapid chess tournament.
