Didn't watch it. Is it about Pragga? Well. Perhaps. Possible.

Meanwhile Wang Hao (Number twelve from the Fide Top 20) has withdrawn from professionell competition due to a buffer overflow/health problems, which is sad.

Very interesting were Judit's comments (round 11 I think) how AlphaZero and now also stockfisk changed the playing style of Supergrandmasters (revaluate giving things for initiative; throw some conceptions (once written in stone) overboard).

Caesura really.
