Why Magnus Carlsen Became The Best Chess Player…

Have an enjoyable stay!


  1. This is the reason why I can't stand the arrogance of those gm's who say: "If you didn't start young, you will never be a master. Have you ever seen a grown man becoming a chess master?".
    "Well, have you ever seen a grown man dropping a job to start playing a board game eight hours a day?".

  2. Henrik deserves a homagé of at least a movie length, a book, or a series. There is SO much chess content out there but this is the first time I encounter a closer look than just a sentence spent on this absolute legend. an example for generations of how to support one's child's dreams in a protective but openminded manner. it's easy to CONDITION a good chess player and many have done it (see laszlo polgar), but the way Henrik approach the task of a guide and father is just exceptional. God bless him

  3. Magnus Carlsen, a generational talent in the world of chess! this type of genius is somewhat scary.

  4. Make's you wonder how many geniuses there is that just don't have this family and surrounding that will make them shine… For example we know, that if Messi wasn't spotted at the young age, brought to Europe and get proper medical treatement, he would never be as successful as now by himself..

  5. Damn Magnus’ family truly deserve so much praise for sacrificing their normal lives to see him flourish into what he is today.

  6. He's v blessed. Not only does he have incredible memory and focus, his father and 1st coach had his welfare as #1 right from the start. Some other parents of prodigies werent like this. The sacrifices made by the family must have made a deep impact in his life.

  7. I just wish more people had a father like Hendrik

  8. Most ruthless and most vicious champion that had ever been…


  10. This is why people are skeptical of hans, in one hand you have someone like magnus who the upmost respect for the game, has this type of life experience with chess,the support from his family knowing they had something special. In the other hand you have someone who has openly cheated, obviously doesn’t respect the game and is a bit on the sketchy side about showing variations. Idk how some people can still question the scandal

  11. 3:15 “catastrophic defeat” is what i call all my chess sessions

  12. Was Carlson conscious enough to have let Gary win out of respect for his pride.. hmm I wonder

  13. the dangerous combination of being a genius, hard work, and an amazing family

  14. Now tell us about "projects" that didn't live up to expectations and hype: Negi, Nyzhnyk etc.

  15. You have to think long term.

    He definitely did❤.

  16. To give everyone an idea regarding his draw againts kasparov (during that time kasparov was considered the best chest player in history, beating everyone prior to their match “magnus v kasparov” kasparov has attained a position where no one can reach, even winning a chess game against every chess master in the world at the same time (kasparov v the world). So a draw againts kasparov is considered a win, not to mention the age of magnus when playing againts against kasparov

  17. "Behind every GOAT is a 2000 FIDE parent." – Magnum Carlos

  18. Simen is such an inspiration football and chess 😍

  19. Imagine he used that intelligence for something actually productive and cool. What a waste of genius brainpower..

  20. € 7K: "not a lot"
    €12K: "very large amount"

    Bro, you in need of a math course? 😂

  21. Really informative video ❤❤great justice for the unsung heroes behind magnus success.
    You got a subscription ❤.

  22. We need info about the mother and her decisions as well….

  23. came back here after he won his 1st world cupp🏆

  24. Lol the no colour edit like this was 40 years ago.. sad edit

  25. so i cant become a chess pro without knowing all of the countries

  26. you can"t get 2.5/9 with 4 draws.. it is wrong

  27. Magnus has the tenacity of a full blown s tier m2 abrahms

  28. And when Alexander saw the breadth of his domain, he wept, for there were no more worlds to conquer. – Hans Gruber

  29. I will make myself improve even If I don't have support

  30. Behind every great genius/athlete is whole lot of work and support from parents and coaches. Just look at Fabiano Caruana and Hikaru Nakamura.

  31. That support was amazing.who would do that. If my family supported me like that in my younger years maybe I was an IM now at least FM now what a great story

  32. We always see the man behind the pieces and we forgot (most of us) the family that supported him throughout his career.

  33. He didn’t dominate anything. He is a stupid player

  34. I have to point out, that Magnus hasn't forgot his family after getting rich and famous.
