Hello Reddit – I’m Magnus Carlsen, the World Chess Champion and the highest rated chess player of all time. AMA.
With the FIDE Candidates tournament going on - where my next World Championship competitor will be decided - and the launch of my Play Magnus app, it is good timing to jump online and answer some questions from the Reddit community.
Excited for a round of questions about, well, anything!
I’ll be answering your questions live from Oslo, starting at 10 AM Eastern time / 3 PM Central European Time.
