Anish Giri: 'People are taking the World Champion title too seriously'

Dutch no. 1 Anish Giri was in fine form when he played Banter Blitz yesterday, both with his blitz chess – he won all 16 games against chess24 users – and with his banter, where topics ranged from humour in chess to the likely future World Chess Champion and whether the title still matters. It’s “a golden era of Banter Blitz”, as Anish said, and today, to mark chess24’s 7th Birthday, we’ve got Hand and Brain shows with Radjabov & Giri and Nepomniachtchi & Dubov, as well as a special show with chess24’s own Jan Gustafsson and Laurent Fressinet.
