ABOUT THE LUMINARY

Magnus Carlsen

Magnus Carlsen

Magnus Carlsen recently defended his World Championship title crowning him yet again as the #1 chess player in the world. Born in Norway, Magnus began playing chess when he was just five years old. He became an International Grandmaster at 13, and six years later he went on to become the youngest player to rank World Number One. Described as the “Mozart of Chess”, he has been the highest rated player in the world since 2011 and holds the record for the highest rating in history. His variety of openings makes it difficult for his proponents to prepare, and his endgame prowess is considered amongst the greatest of all time. In 2013, Magnus was named one of the 100 Most Influential People by TIME Magazine.
