Carlsen wins ‘triple crown’ of chess – Magnus Carlsen triplázott, mindhárom világbajnoki cím a norvég zsenié

Norwegian chess champion Magnus Carlsen did it again on Friday. After winning the World Chess Championship last fall, he now holds the titles of World Rapid Chess Champion and World Blitz Chess Champion, too.

Press conference with world blitz champion Magnus Carlsen

The matches played out in Dubai, right after Carlsen ended up a rare second at Norway Chess in Stavanger last week. That tournament in Stavanger was won by Sergey Karjakin, a Ukrainian-born Russian, with Alexander Grischuk of Russia third. Carlsen had aced the blitz round in Stavanger, too, but conceded that he played too “unevenly” in the rest of Norway Chess “for me to be really satisfied.”
So then it was on to Dubai where he impressed everyone, becoming the first chess player in history to become both the world champion in classic chess and then rapid chess at the same time. He went on to set yet another record Friday, becoming the first person to ever hold all three world champion titles in chess.
“He breaks new records all the time,” said Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK)’s chess commentator Torstein Bae. “There aren’t many who doubt he’s the best chess player of all time.”
Some of the credit may go to the way Carlsen spent the month of May, “with two busy weeks” of events in Norway, the Netherlands and New York, followed by “two relatively quiet weeks at home,” Carlsen wrote on his blog. He called that “a reasonable preparation” for Norway Chess 2014, “and I did feel great both during the initial blitz tournament that I won … and in the few main rounds.”
On Friday, Carlsen called everything in Dubai “perfect” after he clinched two more world championship titles. Carlsen said at a press conference after winning the blitz championship that he’d laid a trap for his opponent, Ian Nepomniachtchi of Russia, “that he went right into.”
Bae called Carlsen’s performance “colossally impressive,” adding that “this will go into the history books.”
After some summer holiday, Carlsen will be back in action at the Chess Olympiad on home turf in Tromsø, northern Norway, in August. Bae said Carlsen will function as a captain for the Norwegian team, with an Olympiad victory posing a new goal for Carlsen.
“It will be a new challenge to lead the national team to success,” Bae told NRK. “He sets personal records all the time, but winning a team victory will be something entirely different.”

closing03

Carlsen on the other hand is pretty happy with his two trophies

closing05

And two medals, don’t forget the two medals

closing01

Caruana and Anand don’t seem too excited for finishing second and third respectively on the rapid!

blitzwinners01

Blitz winners: Nakamura, Carlsen and Nepomniachtchi. FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov took a flight from Georgia for this event.

lushanglei01

Lu Shanglei didn’t give any amazing surprises as he did against Carlsen, but he did have a spectacular tournament anyways

meier01

Meier was unable to keep his form from day one

nepo02

Nepomniachtchi was quickly one of the only three people that were fighting for the title. Here he is wearing his Dota 2 t-shirt, a videogame he famously plays quite well

lequang02

Le Quang Liem tried valiantly to defend his title but it was not to be

nakamura07

Nakamura’s unexpected loss to Yudin was a huge blow to him in the standings

polgar03

Polgar always hovered around the top boards without having any real shot at the title, but definitely one at the podium

anand02 (1)

Anand drew Carlsen but his loss to Nakamura left him out of real chances of winning

Blitz winners: Nakamura, Carlsen and Nepomniachtchi. FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov took a flight from Georgia for this event.

The live ratings have been updated and Carlsen leads in two out of three as Caruana keeps his first place in Rapid. Being the number on rated player in rapid is basically all he has left… other than repeating his feat next year!
