    Amazing at 21 yrs. What is interesting is that despite the name of the clip, "A Chess Prodigy Explains How His Mind Works" he actually couldn't explain it.

    Actually nobody can explain it. But it seems like an extreme kind of specialization and I have some pity because he isnt able to stop thinking.

    Nobody stops thinking, it's just a matter if whether you leave it in background or not.

    Yes, but he seems not to be able to relax, to look out of the window, to enjoy his visit to London.

    Is the forum dying? Nothing newsworthy to talk about?

    What I find interesting to talk about is completely up to me :)
    And of course for you, too.
