Smartfish Chess Masterssets a meeting between both generations and sexes: The world's youngest grandmaster Magnus Carlsen (then just 14) against Victor Korchnoi (73) who is old enough to be his grandfather, Aleksander Khalifman, FIDE world champion 1999-2000, against the present women's world champion Antoaneta Stefanova. And the always dangerous Alexei Shirov (2725), whose book "Fire on board" is soon out with a second edition. We are proud to present ten interesting players you will enjoy watching move by move!
