The author states that Norwegian chess prodigy Magnus Carlsen defeated world champion Viswanathan Anand of India in November of 2013. He mentions that he grew up entirely in the age of strong computer chess programs and comments that the 2.25 million dollar prize fund is half than that which Soviet chess player Anatoly Karpov competed for in 1990. He comments on the lack of leadership among chess players despite the presence of plenty of grassroots chess activity.
