Ivanchuk at the Tal Memorial

Hilarious, and you don't need to speak a word of Russian.  The players as they appear on stage: Levon Aronian of Armenia, Peter Leko of Hungary, Ruslan Ponomariov of Ukraine, Magnus Carlsen of Norway (the laughing person seated in the preview above), Peter Svidler of Russia (joined by Aronian), Vishy Anand of India (seated), and our hero, Vassily Ivanchuk of Ukraine.

H/T to mishanp in the comments at the Daily Dirt.  OK, no more Carlsen photos for awhile.

I did not know that there was a H1N1 pandemic in Ukraine.

Ivanchuk may be eccentric, but he's a genius (& therefore lots smarter than me).
