13th World Chess Champion and Chairman of the Human Rights Foundation Garry Kasparov believes that World Championship contender and former champion Viswanathan Anand is not the same opponent he defeated years ago to retain his crown.

What he really meant:

“Anand is not the Lightning Kid anymore. Not when it comes to playing Magnus Carlsen. He still has bite but has to play the waiting game, hoping his opponent takes the bait and is ensnared.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Tiger Tiger burning bright,
On  the chess boards of Sochi:
What immortal hand or eye,
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

(With apologies to William Blake).”
