Magnus Carlsen stood for a strong demonstration of power when he secured victory at Legends of Chess by crushing Jan Nepomniachtchi. He won all 13 of his duels.
When asked by Chess24 on how he plans on celebrating, Carlsen answered that he will prepare for the semifinals against Ding Liren of the final tournament of his chess tour.
-”I’m addicted basically. I love chess.”, he said.
The Norwegian world champion lost a few games during the 15 games of Legends of Chess, but each time he claimed victory over his opponents each time. First, he won all nine duels during the initial games, followed by both Peter Svidler at the semi finals and Nepomniachtchi at the finals with two straight games.
