    I just heard it while following bilbao. pretty amazing. sort of feels like the god of chess returned to adopt a son and kick chess onto a higher level. extremely interested to see how it all turns out.

    Topaloser should be very worried.

    Meh. Kaspy may not be a good coach.

    It looks like the Carlsens are willing to give Garry the benefit of the doubt.

    Yes, but we shouldn't get our panties in a bunch quite yet.

    Carlsen, or any chessplayer, would be insane for passing up an opportunity to get coaching from Kasparov. That said, you had better have a healthy ego and not take the horrible criticism headed your way. It would probably drive me to drink.

    If Kasparov were to coach me it would drive him to drink!

    Personally I thought Magnus was doing fine sans Kasparov. I hope he gets his money's worth.

    I heard Kasparov was clamouring for 40% of whatever Carlsen makes.
