Good Times

With the help of a friend, I was able to locate a photo I took with a familiar chess personality many years ago.

This is me on the left sitting with the legendary 12th World Chess Champion Anatoly Karpov, the most successful tournament player of all time. This photo was taken at a World Youth Chess Championships event (also known as the World Juniors).

Karpov was the official World Champion from 1975 to 1985. He was then the FIDE World Champion from 1993 to 1999. Karpov is considered one of the greatest players of all time due to his long presence in the world elite. These days, he mainly plays tournaments at rapid time controls and has also written some notable books.
