Non-teenager wins chess game in Iceland

People over thirty, even people with children of their own, can play chess, too!

Another local yokel, Grandmaster and 2008 U.S. Champion Yury Shulman, also has a 4-1 score in Reykjavik. Here's the game he played today:

I am starting to realize that 2400s aren't that great. Look at Shulman's and Adarsh's games today. They both beat their senior master opponents with strong, logical moves. Nothing amazing. And when they chose aggressive lines as White, their opponents didn't play the critical lines, but instead played inferior stuff and got duly crushed.

If 2400s aren't that great, what does that make me?

My mama always said, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." Just kidding. My mama never said that. :-)
