Magnus Carlsen is a Norwegian chess grandmaster who is the former five-time World Chess Champion, reigning four-time World Rapid Chess Champion, and reigning six-time World Blitz Chess Champion. Arguably the greatest Chess player of all time, Carlsen has held the No. 1 position in the FIDE world chess rankings since 1 July 2011 and trails only Garry Kasparov in time spent as the highest-rated player in the world. His peak rating of 2882 is the highest in history. He also holds the record for the longest unbeaten streak at the elite level in classical chess.

He became a grandmaster at the age of 13, the second youngest in history at the time, and quickly established himself as a rising star in the world of chess. In 2013, Carlsen won the World Chess Championship and has since defended his title multiple times, solidifying his position as one of the greatest players of all time.

Carlsen is known for his exceptional skill in the fast-paced bullet chess format, where he regularly defeats other top players in high-pressure matches. He has been compared to legendary chess players such as Garry Kasparov and Bobby Fischer for his strategic abilities and quick-thinking, earning him the respect and admiration of his peers. His greatest rival in the chess world is American Rapid & Blitz specialist Hikaru Nakamura, against whom he has had many intense battles.

In addition to his impressive track record in competitive chess, Carlsen is also known for his willingness to take on challenges outside of the traditional chess world. He has played chess against artificial intelligence and has even competed in the World Blitz and Rapid Championships, where he won multiple gold medals. In recent times, Carlsen has turned to playing Poker, of which he has had limited success. With his natural talent and dedication to the game, Carlsen continues to be a dominant force in the world of chess and a true legend in the sport.


  1. if u look closely, Magnus has stockfish in his watch 2:35

  2. I feel like Magnus just like Blitz more than Classical chess.. he's kinda fallen off in classic but I think that's because he genuinely enjoys blitz more. Regardless he's the GOAT.

  3. 7:49 Alireza resigns, not because he's losing his queen to the knight fork but because he's getting mated… with the h pawn!

  4. So magnus won back to back TT on the same day, and did it while playing other super gms, and ALSO was trolling with 1.h4. What an absolute menace

  5. It’s just normal chess games except Magnus loses the initiative with h4. It’s like he’s playing the black pieces.

  6. phenomenal player. especially given the abundance of public information about his style and the game generally available.

  7. H4 opening. The same pawn that will checkmate the enemy King. What a savage!
