Magnus Carlsen is playing three games this weekend in the Norwegian League (Eliteserien) for his team Offerspillsk. These may be his last classical games as World Chess Champion.

The players have 90 minutes for 40 moves, then 30 minutes to the end of the game, with a 30-second increment from move 1.

  1. On Lichess the analysis says Magnus played a perfect game 0 inaccuracies

  2. And without even the opposition!

    Magnus is good at finding them, as well as making draws — elimination own Kings' escape squares — when necessary!

  3. Magnus being like "let's just enter in the endgame and win"

  4. Always the world champion… in our hearts ❤

  5. The description still shows Magnus' game against Tallaksen btw.

  6. i think that's the wrong game in the description

  7. Yes, I was actually wondering. Thanks for showing.

  8. Before the match happens, I really need to know if David Howell is going to sit behind Magnus for their game!

  9. What do you mean last game as reigning world champion?

  10. 2nd view here, just after 11 seconds of posting

  11. Wrong game in the description. 🫤

    Also, Why not 36… Bc4+ ?

  12. You are correct I am wrong because I say says:

    Unbelievable that I'm a true master of the end game. I've really gotten better at this game.

    Ps. Not just because I found today's move but I've actually gained a lot of rating points.

  13. Why is it going to be his last game as champion?

  14. Why does john ludvig hammer's picture look like a happy mugshot?

  15. The PGN in the description is for the wrong game D:

  16. “ feel free to pause the video and win this game for Magnus “

  17. is there any way for volunteers to add to your library on your github page? i'd love to be able to help you after you've given so many quality videos for us 🙂

  18. FIDE Wolrd Classical Champion. Magnus will still hold the title of true world classical champion, just not as far as FIDE is concerned.

  19. Which is the losing move and the time stamp? Game seems even until well into the last third of the game.

  20. Wow. One subtle end game mistake esp w a few pieces left. Impressive for the big M

  21. You're channel is basically the only one i watch for chess. But i noticed a few stations on the menu are putting the Neiman haircut on Magnus's head . I don't like it. I would prefer to forget about Hans.

  22. That was just an outright gift. Rb7 was obvious.

  23. Can spot a checkmate from a mile away but can't spot a decent hair brush

  24. Whenever i watch your videos i keep getting notifications from facebook even when its not open in any tab

  25. magnus needed to spot a haircut in that thumbnail lmao, it honestly amazes me that people who are famous would leave their house looking like that 😅

  26. At 2:40 "that's why you don't capture h2". Do GM really anticipate 8 moves just like that?
