Why they even bother to cover the tournament when they clearly don't give a flying cattle-manure shall probably always remain beyond my comprehension.

But it's not fair! These grandmasters have all the best moves, surely they could do us patzers the honour of leaving us the "throw away your knight" tricks for our exclusive use? Must they then have everything? It's cruel of Magnus to deprive us of our one area of expertise (one I myself am particularly good at, too), and I protest most strenuously!
