In various sports it is not surprising to hear about the different methods a team may employ to protect game plans and practice routines. This is no less true of chess, where every preparatory measure can be closely guarded from any kind of leak. To that end, Magnus Carlsen has turned to Microsoft Norway to secure the computers, communications, and tools he is using to prepare for the approaching the World Championship against Sergey Karjakin. This preparation includes using powerful chess computers and a team of advisors who examine previous matches to find anything that might help or even a new move. Any of this information leaking could cost the chess master a victory as surprise is that important in the game.
