  13. Thats it your game is up Magnus, your the Norse god of chess called Sjakk Konge. Surely being a god stops you entering all these chess tournaments and crushing all the mere mortals beneath you?

  14. I wonder how many hed get if he didnt have to commentate through it and actually tried hard

  15. This guy is good he should go compete in tourneyments, I bet he could get decently far, maybe even to the top 10.

  16. This Magnus guy is great at solving puzzles, he should like compete in tournaments and stuff

  17. He fails a puzzle and 2 seconds later he solved it in his head lol

  18. this guy is good, I think he should turn pro and start playing against the top guys. By the way I got the full Play Magnus app

  21. well, maybe this guy should go pro, quite quick mind

  22. "Nothing is random in life. Fischer random – it's terrible." HAHAHAHA

  23. "i dont like random, nothing is random in life"

    Dice: am I a joke to you?

  24. The moment he said easy ones I quit playing chess

  25. When presented with the question "Can you play chess?" It becomes apparent I've been answering incorrectly.

  26. Magnus can beat me starting only with 5 seconds in his clock, and even having time to go to the bath

  27. The video was of 4.40 min and it took me 9.20 sec to watch whole , he was so paced , that i had to make the video play at 0.5x speed , thanks to YouTube for this amazing feature,😂😂

  28. Ok so the Queen is on C4, oh he solved it. Ok the Rook is on E oh he solved it. Ok the Knight is pinned oh he solved it.

  29. With 0.25 speed i actually know what is happening…
