Ageless Yasser


Yasser Seirawan has been relatively inactive for years, with the exception of just a few games in Holland here and there. But his play in the World Team Championship has been inspiring. After beating Judit yesterday, he scored again today against Mamedyarov, one of the top players in the world today, to help team USA beat Azerbaijan.
