Vladimir Kramnik retires!?
I don't think it's a sad thing.
Ok he won't be in the major tournaments any more but I don't think he was really a fixture there anyway , lates Wijk proved that and now the motivation has gone he wants to go before it gets embarrasing.
He contributed a huge amount, won everything going and now gets to enjoy the rest of his life with his family. He's not leaving chess altogether and he wants to focus on other projects. e.g contribute to chess education for children.
No one can play for ever and I feel happiness that he can walk away with pride and start the next chapter of his life.
