From October to January , Carlsen played in the second edition of Chess. On 3 January he defeated Nakamura 18—9 in the final, thus winning the tournament for a second time in a row.
He defeated Caruana and Aronian in rounds 1 and 3, respectively, but lost to So in round 6. Carlsen participated in the 51st Biel Grandmaster tournament , held from 23 July to 1 August.
He lost three of his first eight games—including both of the first two—to significantly lower-rated opponents in the rapid event.
All 12 classical time control games were drawn. Carlsen retained his title by defeating Caruana 3—0 in rapid tiebreak games. Carlsen cited the first rapid game as "critical", and said he felt "very calm" after winning it.
Carlsen participated in the sixth edition of Shamkir Chess, held from 31 March to 9 April. Carlsen said at the event's closing ceremony that it was "one of the best tournaments I've ever played, both in terms of performance and also the quality of the games.
The four-man rapid tournament was a double round-robin. In addition to Carlsen, Anand, Ding, and Karjakin participated.
In June, he won the seventh edition of Norway Chess. My confidence is long gone At this point I just don't care anymore and I'm just waiting for the classical to start.
He thus extended his unbeaten streak in classical chess to games , surpassing Ding's record of games. Carlsen has recorded 33 wins and 68 draws throughout the streak.
He was automatically seeded to the semifinal round, as the unofficial Fischer Random Chess champion. He won after defeating Hikaru Nakamura in a tiebreak match, drawing the first game with black and winning the second game with the white pieces.
The first phase consisted of a single round-robin, after which the top four players would advance to the playoffs. Carlsen won the Chess Oscars for , , , and The Chess Oscar, organised by the Russian chess magazine 64 , was awarded to the year's best player according to a worldwide poll of leading chess critics, writers, and journalists, but it was no longer awarded after , as 64 ceased publication.

In , Time magazine named Carlsen one of the most influential people in the world. On 5 September , after winning in round 4 of the Bilbao Masters , Carlsen, aged 17 years and days old, briefly became No.
Carlsen had an aggressive style of play as a youth,   and, according to Simen Agdestein, his play was characterised by "a fearless readiness to offer material for activity".
When he started playing in top tournaments, he had trouble getting much out of the opening. To progress, Carlsen's style became more universal, capable of handling all sorts of positions well.
He opens with both 1. Nf3 , thus making it harder for opponents to prepare against him and reducing the effect of computer analysis.
Magnus tries to put the accent only on play, getting away from preparation, but for me preparation plays an enormous role. Jan Timman , .
He gets his positions [and] then never lets go of that bulldog bite. Exhausting for opponents. Anand said of Carlsen in "Magnus has an incredible innate sense.
The majority of ideas occur to him absolutely naturally. He's also very flexible, he knows all the structures and he can play almost any position.
He grew up when I was in power, and perhaps he studied my games. He can convert a minimal advantage into a real one. In a interview, Vladimir Kramnik stated that Carlsen's "excellent physical shape" was a contributing factor to his success against other top players as it prevents "psychological lapses", which enables him to maintain a high standard of play over long games and at the end of tournaments, when the energy levels of others have dropped.
Carlsen has the highest nettlesomeness score by this metric, because his creative moves pressure the other player and open up a lot of room for mistakes.
In contrast, a player such as Kramnik plays a high percentage of very accurate moves, and of course he is very strong, but those moves are in some way calmer and they are less likely to induce mistakes in response.
He plays on for ever, calmly, methodically and, perhaps most importantly of all, without fear: calculating superbly, with very few outright mistakes and a good proportion of the "very best" moves.
This makes him a monster and makes many opponents wilt. An artificial intelligence approach, designed by Jean-Marc Alliot of the Institut de recherche en informatique de Toulouse "Toulouse Computer Science Research Institute" , which compares chess grandmaster moves against that of Stockfish —a chess engine that outperforms all human opponents—rated Carlsen as the best player of all time as he had the highest probability among all World Chess Champions to play the moves which Stockfish suggested.
The campaign was shot by Dutch film director and photographer Anton Corbijn. Carlsen, playing white, won in 43 moves.
Film director J. Abrams offered Carlsen a role in the movie Star Trek Into Darkness as "a chess player from the future", but Carlsen was unable to get a work permit in time for shooting.

The annual tournament was a double round-robin event that featured six super grandmasters and was held from to At the time, chess statistician Jeff Sonas ranked it against all events in history.
He deemed it one of the 20 top tournament performances of all time and the best of all time by a teenager. The year-old, rated Norwegian prodigy boosted his rating by 29 points by winning the Pearl Spring Chess Tournament in spectacular fashion, giving him a new rating of It made him just the fifth player in history to break and still the youngest to do so.
It was by no small margin, either. The tournament was a double round-robin event with 22 players and an average rating of Carlsen, just two weeks before his 19th birthday, became the world champion in blitz with a performance rating of Using a different scoring system—three points for a win, one for a draw and zero for a loss—Carlsen, the number-one player in the world, won with 13 points.

In June, Carlsen won Bazna Kings , going undefeated with 7. He won the tournament two full points ahead of Radjabov and Boris Gelfand.
Then Carlsen suffered a setback. At the Grand Slam Masters Final in October, he faced Kramnik, Anand and Shirov in a four-player tournament that had an average rating of —the highest-rated event in history at the time.
Carlsen suffered two losses and finished third, achieving a performance rating of only Anand, rated , took the top spot.
Carlsen silenced critics who said he was distracted from chess by activities such as modeling. In November , Carlsen withdrew from the world championship cycle.
Carlsen ended the year with a third-place finish in the World Blitz Championship and another win at the London Chess Classic, which was billed as the U.
After a tie for third place in January at Wijk aan Zee, Carlsen put together a handful of major tournament victories in He beat Karjakin on tiebreaks to win Bazna Kings His final tournament victory that year was in December at the Tal Memorial, where he finished ahead of Aronian on tiebreaks.

One month later, Carlsen would face the world champion at the time, Anand, for the most important title in chess. That set the stage for Carlsen vs.
Carlsen was rated while Anand, number-eight in the world, was rated nearly points lower at The first four games resulted in draws.
Then, in the fifth game, Carlsen castled queenside on the white side of a Marshall Gambit sideline. With better piece activity and pawn structure, Carlsen kept the pressure on Anand, who had missed a key move in a rook-and-bishop endgame to keep the balance Carlsen took the first decisive result in the match, and his momentum continued in the next game.
After six games, halfway through the match, Carlsen took a commanding lead. The next two games were relatively quiet.
And then, in game eight, Carlsen opted for 1. Anand took criticism for playing the quiet Berlin Defense, which led to piece trades and a symmetrical position, resulting in another draw.
Given the match situation, Anand vowed to play more aggressively in the next game. He played a sharp line against the Nimzo-Indian 4.
Anand missed chances for a better attack while Carlsen defended well. A late blunder forced from Anand led to a lost game, and the match was practically beyond reach.
The 10th game ended in a draw to close the match by a score of 6. Carlsen became world champion of chess roughly one week before his 23rd birthday.
He celebrated by jumping into a pool fully clothed. After achieving the most recognizable and arguably important accomplishment in chess, Carlsen somehow upped the ante the following year in He started by winning the Zurich Chess Challenge , which at the time was the highest-rated tournament in history.

Then it was time for classical chess. Carlsen scored eight points in that portion, two points ahead of Aronian.

Other participants were Nakamura, Anand and Gelfand. Later in April, Carlsen won the Shamkir Chess tournament. He finished with 6. He achieved his highest official rating of Earlier during the Shamkir event, his live rating hit Both of those numbers are the highest ratings ever achieved in classical chess.
The first game was a fighting draw with Carlsen on the black side of the Grunfeld Defense. He then took the first win as White in a Ruy Lopez with more active pieces in the endgame.
The turning point was in game six. After two draws, Anand missed a simple tactical idea that would have given him strong winning chances.
He blundered after Carlsen had blundered and lost the game. Four more draws took place as Carlsen enjoyed his one-game lead. He seems to have returned to form with an uncontested first place in the powerful Isle of Man Masters , finishing with 7.

After his best start in a major tournament in recent years with two wins in the first two rounds, Carlsen gradually lost ground in the category 20 Biel with a string of draws, culminating in a loss in the penultimate round to Shakhriyar Mamedyarov which enabled the latter to win the event with a round to spare.
In March , Carlsen played for the second time in the Melody Amber blind and rapid chess tournament, which was held in Nice for the first time.
Carlsen achieved four wins, four draws and two losses in the Amber Tournament Blindfold , and three wins, two losses, and six draws in the Amber Tournament Blindfold , resulting in a shared second place in the overall tournament.

After a slow start in the Arctic Securities Chess Stars rapid tournament, he continued his success by defeating Anand in the two-game playoff for gold.
A phenomenal 9. In October , he successfully backed up to defend his title at the World Rapid Championship , scoring His unsuccessful attempt to defend his crown at the World Blitz Championship was a similarly tight affair, with Carlsen losing on countback to the World Championship Challenger Sergei Karjakin, both scoring At Leuven, Carlsen was third with 5.
Carlsen regained his blitz title at Riyadh in Saudi Arabia when he won the World Blitz Championship with a round to spare after the disappointment of losing the lead in the World Rapid Championship when he lost the last round.

Carlsen and each of the three players were given nine minutes. Carlsen won A video of the event can be seen at the link in footnote 4.
Everybody had 30 minutes on their clocks. Magnus won 11 to 0 Carlsen Play Live Simul Bobby could die happy knowing that practically every game was prearranged until at least move Comparing that to the environment Anand and Kramnik had for the best part of their prime career where chess community was devided between FIDE and whatever the other faction called themselves, while having separate World Championship Titles with different formats introduced to achieve their world championship, which were not considered appropriate universally.
As the article points out, Kramnik said he has lent Anand the crown but would accept that Anand as world champion only if he gets defeated by Anand in a match, which he gracefully did after the loss.
On the other hand, Topalov didn't take such remarks kindly and it boiled over during the world championship. Imagine similar conditions with this generation of players, when Carlsen send social media tweets on how Nakamura shouldn't broadcast games on his twitch channel after his company Chess24 gave go-ahead to Nakamura to do so exactly.
This generation of players would've made the situation ugly two decades ago for the chess public. There are still many players who keep their temperament and composure together, but Carlsen and now Giri are just acting like spoiled brats.
I don't get that! Carlsen makes loads of mistakes.. Says you with ya faithfull engine. As long as we know who he is, that's all that matters. And a year after, he already won his school championship, and two following tournaments of "Petrograd Chess Assembly" targeted for older players.
It is difficult to compare modern prodigies to young players in the old days, and Botvinik started playing chess relatively late, but still I'd say that the above qualifies him as a child-prodigy or at least as an adolescent prodigy.
Indeed, the fact that Botvinnik turned out to be such a great chess player, despite his late start and despite the fact that he had a real job and wasn't really a professional chess player , is highly impressive.
But I was referring to the prodigy claim and not his general greatness.. If you asked the same people who Fischer was I suspect you would get the same answer.
That's a pub, not a race. Anyways, he remarked it was normal for a GM to learn how the pieces move at that age in his time. So obviously Botvinnik belongs to an early era but still 12 must have been quite normal.
I think they maybe meant not GM but for a WC to learn so late was unusual. My guess is the first runing point that children could learn all this higher level stuff so young was probably the Polgar sisters.
You think that beating in a simul one of the greatest players ever in his prime, less than 2 years after learning to move the pieces, is something of the ordinary?
Your think that reaching Leningrad championship final, and becoming a successful member of their team, less than 3 years after learning the rules of the game is not impressive?
How would you estimate such a performance in today's standards? I'd estimate it as an rated player level of today. You don't consider someone who reaches an rating level in less than 3 years as a prodigy?
He was ridiculously strong at chess very early on. Stupidly strong. I rate Botvinnik. I have a go at him coz of his Soviet School stuff and how Soviet chess ganged oooooop on young BobbyMagnus Carlsen Invitational is a single round robin tournament held on 18th April to 3th May It is featuring the following players: Carlsen, Magnus.
