It seems everyone today has a story about @FabianoCaruana. Here's mine. We drew when he was 15; I wasn't that impressed. After the game I asked what he wanted to do in the future. He looked at me like I was an idiot and replied "Chess player." I laughed. Guess who's laughing now?

Many anticipate Fabiano Caruana to soon challenge Carlsen in the next World Chess Championship match. If so, are battles like this game out of the Sicilian, Rossolimo what we can expect?
