GRENKE Chess Classic 2019 R7

GRENKE Chess Classic 2019 R7

BREAKING: Carlsen scores his 16th win vs Aronian, takes a huge step towards his 3rd tournament victory in 2019.

Time for some updates on Carlsen’s performance in 2019:

  • Performance rating: 2925
  • Score: 74,1 % (+14 =15 -0)
  • Performance with white: 3016 (+8 =5 -0)
  • Performance with black: 2860 (+6 =10 -0)
  • Games without a loss: 56.

A mágus közel került, egy üjabb szupertorna gyŐzelemhez: a hamincharmadikhoz ! Kevesen hitték volna akkortájt, hogy a tavalyi Carlsen vs Carauna vb döntő idejen a sakk Mágusa ismét varázsol. Persze sokakban megfogalmazódik egy jogos kérdés is. Magnus, mondják a fanyalgók már nem annyira pontos.Csak ennyit azoknak,akiknek…

Jómagam szerényen CSAK kérdeznék az immár négyszeres világnajnok kapcsán,ha nem a nem a régi, akkor, hol vannak a többiek ? Ha jól látom, akkor, HOL IS?!
