Quote of the day: "These 2700 players, they are so lucky!"

Just came across with this short, witty and cocky remark from chessbase by GM-elect and current world youngest GM, Anish Giri. On Saturday Anish came close of defeating 2009 Aeroflot newly installed champion, GM Etienne Bacrot on the Bundesliga Games, but consequently, Giri lost the game. When asked what went wrong, Anish just simply replied:

"I was winning after the opening, just winning. And I even saw the winning line. But then I found another way to win which was even better, except that it lost. These 2700 players, they are so lucky!"

Now that's what makes a prodigy!
