Magnus Carlsen ranks past world chess champions

Catch this little gems on coverage of Meltwater Champions Chess Tour
(Tal would always be the genius anyways😅)


  1. I think Karpov is also good for the sanity category. Seems like a gentleman.

  2. In terms of funniest name – Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding, and it is not even close!

  3. Kasparov never played under the Azerbaijan flag.

  4. Lol. They switched Capablanca and Tal at the end.

  5. Nic (J Bruce Feynman Niccolo P. Bentulan) says:

    Greatest player of all time: maybe not bobby fischer

    Greatest player currently: magnus carlsen

    Most talented player of all time: BOBBY FISCHER

    Most talented player currently: WESLEY SO

    9LX FTW 4-0 world championship finals trolololol

    > The quality of the games isn't very high because we make such fundamental mistakes in the opening. We don't understand it nearly enough and I think that would increase a lot if we were given a classical time control there.


  6. Mikhail Tal is the only one player with positive result against Fishrt. They met 4 times, but twice in blitz which I don't consider proper chest game. Classical games were won by Tal both times.

  7. Chess will never bore you if you play like Tal……….Mikhail Tal > Quotes

    “You must take your opponent into a deep dark forest where 2+2=5, and the path leading out is only wide enough for one.” …

    “There are two types of sacrifices: correct ones, and mine.”

  8. Bobby Fischer had all the traits of a genius, Carlsen just can't deal with that

  9. Sultan khan who the beat the hell out of Capablanca be like
    Wait a minute…

  10. Lol..he is still envious to bobby.. who wouldnt be?!

    Bobby destroyed soviet single internet.. no team of preparation … karpov once said that kasparov had a massive team to prepare his games but fischer was alone..

  11. Weird to have a category for "sanity"…
    I was actually hoping this video would be him ranking past world champions in terms of how good they are after him. I suppose Kasparov would be second… Maybe Fischer

  12. Fisher deduced the entire Russian team was cheating by analyzing their model of playing and realize they were throwing games. The takes real genius to figure out.

    200 elo trying to judge what magnus has said. Hahaha

  14. Capablanca is the most efficient, Morphy is the real genius, Steinitz defined modern chess so might be the most influential.

  15. God didn't agree with magnus so he switched tal to genius in the end

  16. whats with the music playing? annoying!!!!!!!!!!!! why do this?

  17. Morphy.
    Destroyed everyone. Played instantly and it wasn't even his profession.
    He even played numerous games where he was to sick to leave his bed.
    Sorry Magnus, guys on your list cannot even comprehend such brilliancy.

  18. He does not respect Fischer? Even Tal called him the greatest genius to ever descend from the chess heavens

  19. Magnus knows Fischer is the one person often ranked ahead of him so he doesn’t pick him. Savage 😂

  20. Sorry Magnus, but I'd go with Fischer as genius Karpov as sanity and level-headedness

  21. "Magnus Carlsen is lethal combination of Fischer and Karpov" – Garry Kasparov

  22. Am i the only one who thought that it was keegan key in the thumbnail?

  23. It might be unfashionable to say, and I doubt that this name will appear in the comments, but I remember seeing some statistical analysis that used computer calculations to analyse the most accurate player across a career of tournament play. Apparently… Vladimir Krammnik.

  24. Bobby Fischer was such a nut job that they had to make a sanity category 😂
