'Harry Potter' director reveals the most difficult scenes to film were any that involved Quidditch because he only understood 'about 75%' of the rules at first

The chess World Cup between Magnus Carlsen and Jan Nepomnjashchi is above all a missed chance. Sporty interesting it will still be. A comment.
It could have been a medial chess spectacle, comparable to the Challenger's World Cup fight against Boris Spasski in 1972 in Reykjavik. Number one against the number two of the world:against Alireza Firouzja, against the native Iranian and electoral forunt who has just exceeded the magical border of 2800 ELO points at the age of 18 years. That would not even have done King Magnus. Firouzja's performance is reminiscent of legendary players.
Aiding the Eastern European chessman is essential for the US
The Biden administration must work with the European Union to provide countries with technical support, training and best practices. The problem with this decidedly unglamorous approach is that it takes decades to sink in, and the results are almost impossible to see - let alone quantify - which makes it hard to stir American enthusiasm to see the anti-corruption race through to its end. But only such an organic policy approach can eradicate the corruption cancer over time, with the U.S. helping to heal its Central and Eastern European allies from within. Only then will the battle against corruption be truly won.
would have been ... Chess fans have to be satisfied from Friday with the World Cup match Carlsen, 30, against, 31. The latter had qualified in a long-prone candidate tournament.

Carlsen will be on the hat. Self-confident enough is Nepo. 14 lots are played in Dubai. Everyone is waiting for a slip-up of the other, pure nervous thing at both playing strength. Nepomnjaschi has white in the first party. A small psychological suit advantage.
but no matter who wins - probably at the end of Carlsen, as for eight years - the next World Cup opponent is certainly standing: Alireza Firouzja, the France last almost single-handedly led to the silver medal at the team-EM. He has to win 2022 only the next candidate tournament. The king against the shooting star. Maybe there is even a bit more attention for the chess game.
