The World No 1 vs USA No 1
The first (or rather another game) in the ongoing rivalry between two ex-teen titans. Some commentators have already predicted that this may be a long-time rivalry in the making providing chess kibitzers with good value entertainment for years to come. Remember Carlsen won the World Blitz in November 2009 but then lost to Nakamura 1-3 in the final of the BNbank Blitz tournament, held Saturday, November 28th in Oslo, Norway. BTW, they drew again in Corus at Wijk aan See.
