      @Clark Potter , тогда система рухнет. Чтоб система человеческого общества работала, нужно максимум его разнообразить, создав планку, к которой люди должны стремиться. Эта планка должна быть везде: от физики до шахмат, потому как образец, напрмер, по шахматам может создать отличного художника, а возможно и наоборот: от любования картинами может стать отличный шахматист.

    Everyone is talking about how fast Magnus moves his pieces but I'm stunned by the fact that shes able to hold her own and actually push the literal no. 1 person in the game for over 6 minutes. That's a huge W

      Funfact: they do not speak to each other in their lingua franca, either. Since Cramling is Swedish, they would 99% certianly speak with each other in swedish and norwegian respectively, were they in private (swedish and norwegian is mutually intelligeble). That's what we do when we meet swedes (I'm Norwegian)

      Many, many players can calculate 4 moves ahead! What IS extremely impressive was Kasparov's calculating 17 moves ahead in his famous great winning game versus Topalov in which Kasparov sacrificed numerous pieces, falling way behind materially, and then regained all the lost material and won the game brilliantly! Now that is mind-bogglingly impressive!

      LOL no, you misunderstood-she said “I’ll let you mate” as in go ahead and take my pawn to finish off the mate for good (instead of me resigning), and then she just reminded him to say hi at the end. She was just letting him go through the motions. But he won square and fair. She didn’t let him win. In fact she didn’t even catch what he meant by “Oh never mind, there is a mate” towards the end (which I don’t blame her for, in the heat of the moment)
      But yeah it seems like 2,000+ people misunderstood what she said lol, she definitely didn’t let him win; she was actually trying hard during this match, but did good overall

      @Nathaly Magnus is just bored , when you been on top so long , it gets boring. Matter of fact , he's not even going to defend his 🌎 chess championship title so therefore that should tell you that he's bored with chess.
      I wouldn't be shocked if he stops playing altogether and find a new hobby.
