27 Great Chess Quotes from Magnus Carlsen E-mail
Written by Yury Markushin   
Thursday, 31 October 2013 00:00

magnus calrsen introHere is the list of quotes by number 1 ranked chess player in the world - Magnus Carlsen. Not many chess players have the ability to become a grandmaster. Not many grandmasters cross the 2700 line. Only a few of those who do, achieve the 2800 rating.

But this guy is very special, not only  he became a grandmaster at a very young age and was dominating the FIDE rating list for almost 2  years now, he also broke the 'highest rating ever' record of 2856 (held by Kasparov) with a new 2878.

It takes little extra something to achieve that much, so I feel he's definitely worth listening to.

oppositionIf you want to win more chess games you should spend more time studying chess fundamentals. As Stephan Gerzadowicz said 'openings teach you openings, endgames teach you chess '. In our last week's discussion we studied nuances of the opposite color bishop endgames. Today we will talk about probably the single most important technique in king & pawn endgames: the power of opposition.

Mario Matouš (16th June, 1947 - 4th July, 2013)
