    this feels like carlsen.  playing till the end in worse positions and waiting for a mistake by the opponent. classic. not an easy strategy to make work against elite gms like lagrave.  really impressive

    When I translated the article using google (so it might not be reliable), Tarjei Svensen declined to comment on the ICC account thetwits.. So it's not Carlsen for sure..

    thetwits bullet is like Magnus' standard chess -- pretty ordinary and very quick & more precise than his opponents near the end.


    One thing that really stands out is his efforts to continually use his whole army and ignore small short-term things for that.
