Magnus Carlsen does not require much introduction – his great chess power and tremendous results are well known. The Norwegian star has been dominating the chess world for a couple of years and he’s still on top, which is great!
But what is really intriguing is HOW Carlsen can play so well, consistently?
While this is a mystery to most chess players, we’ll analyse it in depth – I’m going to conduct the webinar “Press your opponents like Carlsen” on 28 February at 3 p.m. GMT (check timings here: LINK), where I’ll discuss the above question deeply and share with you the key factors for his success.
For instance, let me show you an example – below is a position from the recent World Championship match between Carlsen and Anand.
Carlsen – Anand
It is the second game of the event, where Anand played 34…h5?? He had to resign after White’s answer 35.Qb7. Instead, Black could have played 34…Qd2, counter-attacking the White king, and the game would have gone on.
But here is the question: how could Anand make such an elementary blunder in one move? It seems like pure luck on the part of Carlsen.
However, let’s see what Carlsen himself says about his games. Here’s a fragment of Carlsen’s interview:
Journalist: Many people think that you are lucky, that your opponents commit mistakes. Do you think this is some part of you being lucky?
Carlsen: No, that is a myth. When you put pressure on your opponents, they tend to make mistakes.
And this is exactly what we’ll talk about in my webinar “Press your opponents like Carlsen”! 🙂
