First i would like to wish every one a Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Recently i spent 2 days at the London chess classic tournament,watching the superstars and catching up with a few chess friends as well.
I was their for the first days play,and what a game Luke Mcshane had in beating Magnus Carlsen.
I was lucky to get a few words with Luke after the game,he was very down to earth, which is amazing as he just beat the highest rated player he had ever played.
I also got to talk to Micky Adams and Vladimir Kramnik(i have the photos to prove it).
Micky is a very nice person,and is willing to spend a bit of time talking chess to lower type players.
I also met Viktor Korchnoi who is a legend in chess but very grumpy when he is finished talking to you.
I had a great time watching the GM's and also some of the games in other tournaments.

Cant wait for next year.
