    Mr. Carlsen is a fantastic player. He deserves better in America than The Simpsons, sadly America thinks one need not be smart if one can blow up the world. America needs more chess players and fewer "patriots" 😞

    You shouldn't bag on the Simpsons -- they are modern day prophets. They predicted Donald Trump becoming prez.

    I keep forgetting I can make it a workable link.

    this is a better and longer clip of the chess sequence.
    but I cannot get the link to work. It's a facebook thing.
