I’m very happy! It’s my favorite type of chess, and it hasn’t been popular until the last couple of years. I usually win tournaments the first time and never again. Magnus had a bad couple of days if it was regular chess he would probably have beaten me easily,” So said in an interview with NRK. “To me, mainly chess is art – that’s why I like Fischer Random a lot, there is a lot of creativity.
