Updated: Master Class Magnus Carlsen


Hardly any world champion has managed to captivate chess lovers and the general public as much as Magnus Carlsen. The enormously talented Norwegian came out of nowhere on stage without having been systematically trained in the structures of a large chess nation like Russia, Ukraine or, more recently, China. Rather, its development had taken place in an almost completely private environment. When his father realized his son’s incredible talent, his father took him out of school, bought a mobile home and set off from tournament to tournament with the whole family. The rough diamond from Norway was gradually polished in countless tournament games and soon received invitations to top tournaments, where he demonstrated his incredibly deep understanding of chess even against the world’s best players.

Thanks to Carlsen’s style, the computer-aided opening preparation has moved into the background, the sporty side of chess is becoming more and more important – deep strategy, extensive endgame knowledge, energy and perseverance are the trump cards of the new chess megastar. In 2010 Carlsen was number one in the world rankings; In 2013 he also won the title of world champion, which he has successfully defended several times.
