Magnus Carlsen

Norwegian chess Grandmaster and chess prodigy who is currently the number-one ranked player in the world.
I can’t count the times I have lagged seemingly hopelessly far behind, and nobody except myself thinks I can win. But I have pulled myself in from desperate [situations]. When you are behind there are two strategies - counter-attack or all men to the defences. I’m good at finding the right balance between those.More Magnus Carlsen quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I've never been much of a computer guy at least in terms of playing with computers. Actually until I was about 11 I didn't use a computer for preparing for games at all. Now, obviously, the computer is an important tool for me preparing for my games. I analyze when I'm on the computer, either my games or my opponents. But mostly my own.More Magnus Carlsen quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
