A billion reasons never to believe what Ilya Merenzon says

Anybody remember when, in 2015, Kirsan wanted there to be a billion chess players within "five or six years"?

We made it! In only half the time! Well, that's our "audience", anyway.

But why only one? Why not two? Seven? A hundred billion billion chess fans on all the planets of the Milky Way?

There are several obvious (derisory) follow ups
"More people play Chess than there are atoms in the universe."
"If all the people who played Chess were gathered together in one place, they would cover an area the size of Wales."
