Wesley won the preliminary Blitz tournament of the Norway Chess with such titans of blitz as Carlsen, Nakamura, MVL, Karjakin... 6 pts out of 9. This bodes well for our boy, as the classic chess tourney begins. I pray the momentum carries over to the regular games, as Wes is a momentum player. It should also boost his confidence against such a strong field!

Wesley So Wins Norway Chess Opening Blitz

Wesley So won the Altibox Norway Chess opening blitz tournament on Sunday in Stavanger. "Totally unexpected I suppose," the American GM said himself. "Everyone expected Magnus to dominate again, like last year."

This early, it shows the positive effect re improvement of Wesley when he hooked up with his new second/trainer (or whatever you may call it). I forgot his name but even before the Norway Chess, he is already collaborating with his new second.

Perhaps bro. Joey can dig up the name.

I got it...The name is George Meier, a German grandmaster. In fact, it was the idea of his second to launch a striking queenside pawn advance against Karjakin.
