Chess Champ 2014

To avoid being seen as a plonker when discussing chess in your local pub, take note that the FIDE World Chess Champion 2014 is Norwegian grandmaster Magnus Carlsen (right). In Sochi he pulverised five times World Champion Vishy Anand (left) from India so effectively that the closing ceremony was held three days earlier than planned. And guess who was there signing autographs for young fans and trying not to look like Russian Mafia, our old chum Vladimir Putin. This was the first time the president of any nation hosting the World Championship has been present at the closing ceremony. The next FIDE World Chess Championship will be held in the USA in 2016 (CLICK).
