Carlsen training with Kasparov!
Roll over Anand & Topalov!

I'm glad to hear that. Hopefully Carlsen will be World Champ in a few years, and then Kasparov will take up competitive chess again to challenge his former pupil in a match! ;) Well, I can dream anyway.

Carlsen number 1
Now that Carlsen is training with Kasparov, how much time before being ranked number 1 in FIDE ratings according to you ?
William Taylor (2009-09-08 00:45:12)
It depends whether you mean a solid, consistent number 1, or just being number 1 on one two-month period's rating list. The latter could happen at any time - he has been number 1 briefly on the live rankings before - though admittedly Topalov has quite a lead at the moment. I think Carlsen is still some way from being a dominant number 1 in the way Kaspy was though - that may not happen at all of course, and if it does I think it will take at least a year but probably rather longer.

Kasparov : "I am more an aggressive player, Magnus is more of a Karpov-like player"
