  8. Magnus Carlsen is currently the FIDE World Chess Champion. The 2020 match was postponed to 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the next match will be played in 2023. Magnus Carlsen is giving others a chance by retiring undefeated since 2014.

  11. No wonder the censor the Russian flag. They are controlled by women, women feel the NEED to protect peoples feelings. Get women out of positions of power. Theyre too invasive. Its okay to display the Russian flag. You cant change the fact the Ian is from Russia. Get over it.
