Talent is much more a given, these days.

In this day and age, the young people seem to have completely overtaken the talent industry. Talent is so much wisespread today, that it seems to be a much cheaper commodity than slightly earlier times.

Re: Why are super top professional Go players so stupid?

I learned in one-two hours of analysis more than they have learnt in decades of study and practice. I guess they are natively not that gifted. Lack of vitamins. I would honestly hope that chess players are the most intelligent humans (apart of course from top talmudic scholars). Ok, to put it anoth...

Re: Who do you believe could be the Blindfolded Champion ?

I'd imagine that playing blindfolded would be the biggest handicap there is. (more than sighted simultaneous, or very small odds or small clock odds).

Is magnus carlsen the greatest human player ever?

He seems to have all the skills of chess history, and does all the right things in all positions and time controls, automatically.

All Komodo are much below Stockfish right now. Around 60 elo at very least in TCEC condition.
