That was quite a game.  Though I doubt the Marx's tactical advance would succeed today.

Interestingly, for what it is worth, I note the Top 10 players...

 1    Carlsen, Magnus            NOR    2843   
 2    Mamedyarov, Shakhriyar    AZE    2814   
 3    Kramnik, Vladimir            RUS    2800   
 4    So, Wesley               USA    2799   
 5    Aronian, Levon                    ARM    2797   
 6    Vachier-Lagrave, Maxime    FRA    2793   
 7    Caruana, Fabiano        USA    2784   
 8    Nakamura, Hikaru        USA    2781   
 9    Anand, Viswanathan   g    IND    2779   
 10    Giri, Anish                            NED    2777   

And only 1 is Russian.

How does that connect to chess?  Most top chess-players are kind of weird.
