Magnus Carlsen vs Hans Niemann
After the end of the round-robin tournament within the framework of the Julius Baer Generation Cup, the world champion was interviewed, in which he spoke about Hans Niemann for the first time in a long time.
Unfortunately I cannot particularly speak on that but people can draw their own conclusion & they certainly have. I have to say I am very impressed by Niemann’s play & I think his mentor Maxim Dlugy must have been doing a great job. I hope to say a little bit more after the tournament. On a general basis I think cheaters in the future should not be taken lightly either online or over the board”— quotes the words of Carlsen chess24
Recall that after losing to Niemann in St. Louis, Magnus Carlsen withdrew from the competition. In the 6th round of the Julius Baer Generation Cup, the world champion surrendered to the American grandmaster after 2 moves.
