Seb makes Magnus Carlsen's move!

Seb and Magnus.jpg Oxfordshire junior Seb Watkins was selected to make Magnus Carlsen's opening move in the last round of the London Classic. What an honour, and at the historic tournament where Carlsen broke Kasparov's all time grading record. Seb suggested d4 (as can be seen) but after the photographs ended Magnus elected to play 1.e4 and drew a fine game with Vishy Anand. Well done Seb, I hope you enjoyed it.
