Today, 30 November 2016, the chess prodigy from Norway, Magnus Carlsen, is celebrating his 26th birthday – the Remote Chess Academy (RCA) wishes this great player a very Happy Birthday!
I’ve prepared a very interesting video lesson for you – it’s “Magnus Carlsen’s immortal chess game”! I’ve selected the best game ever played by Carlsen; at least, it has to be one of his best games. It’s a really beautiful and instructive game.
He played this game against Judit Polgar, which is interesting because it was played between, arguably, one of the best male and female chess players of all time. Moreover, it was a blindfold game; they were playing without a chessboard, which makes it even harder to play.
You can watch the video below:
