I have been informed that GM Magnus Carlsen and former FIDE World Champion Khalifman are planning to attend my nightly press conference at the 2008 Dresden Chess Olympiad. Magnus’ father Henrik and teacher GM Agdestein were on last night and they spoke quite a bit about Magnus. They both agree that he is just a regular / normal teenager who just happens to excel in chess at the highest level. I agree.
