Magnus Carlsen vs The World

Monday, September 20th, 2010

It’s nice to see chess making a splash in popular culture through its confluence with fashion and celebrity. That’s exactly what G-RAW and Liv Tyler brought to the table as Magnus Carlsen faced “The World” in the recent RAW Chess Challenge.

As for the chess, you be the judge. Clearly, Kasparov’s feat in his victory against The World is more notable in its length and depth of analysis. This one was finished in a single sitting and almost as though he were playing one of the GMs but with them handicapped by not being able to see their own plans thru to fruition.

Serious chess. Serious fun!
