Since yesterday Wieliczka has another pride, besides its fabulous UNESCO heritage salt mine. It’s Jan Krzysztof Duda, 23, who won the Chess World Cup beating i.a. Magnus Carlsen and, in thirty moves, Sergey Karyakin of Russia. Now the young man has the chance to challenge current world master Carlsen. We are not all the crude and unskilled savages you may see in your movies and on TV. As many as 468 FIDE titled players (go to advanced search) is no picnic.
I honestly love chess but I don’t know how they played it. dang
