“Fischer’s rage at the chessboard”!

Garry Kasparov on what makes Magnus Carlsen so good:

 

Yesterday it was Garry, today it’s his great rival and another all-time legend 12th World Chess Champion Anatoly Karpov who will be joining the commentary!

Magnus makes Nepo a slight favourite to face him in the final as he’s played the better chess in the event, but was highly impressed by Giri’s “mental resilience”

And now Grischuk, dropping bombs!
“We are witnessing maybe the most grudge match-up we have currently in chess because I’m sure Ian hates Anish & I hope this feeling is mutual, so I think it’s going to be a very emotional & interesting match!”

Magnus Carlsen: “Anish should remember he’s playing the best player in the world at positions with a queen and rooks… so I wouldn’t feel very confident in Anish’s shoes”

And now Grischuk, dropping bombs!
“We are witnessing maybe the most grudge match-up we have currently in chess because I’m sure Ian hates Anish & I hope this feeling is mutual, so I think it’s going to be a very emoti
onal & interesting match!”

Egy kis sakk történelem

Magnus Carlsen says the best moment of his career was winning the Norwegian U11 Championship in 2000 – and he’s not joking! It was the first time he believed he could be the best

 

 

Grischuk’s quick summary of the “remarkable” Giri-Nepo, Game 3, which he says highlighted the players’ strengths and weaknesses!
