It is 2870 and rising...
Who cares about Judith Polgar? she's ranked like #50 in the world....
She would whip your ass so don't insult her.
yep, she's a real flagellatrice.
Carlsen is not smart enough to speak 2 languages fluently
He seems to speak English quite well...
As someone who speaks English, I can tell you with certainty that this is inaccurate.
You have proved yourself to be an utter half-wit. How could you honestly say that the best chess player in history is not smart?
...It is obvious he can do most anything that requires a great deal of memory, patience, abstract reasoning,also demonstration of these things under stress (biggest stage, under time pressure, high expectations from fans,etc), requiring passion, and dedication. These show quite a bit of intelligence, while he also demonstrates balance in the other areas of his life. He is still a happy normal healthy young man, who isn't totally *inept socially.
*( your opinion of him not wanting to dicuss his strategies, or failures, because he isn't in the mood, and especially because English isn't his first language, isn't sufficient grounds for you to call him a social misfit, especially if you have never had to walk a mile in his shoes....)
All of these add up to quite a gifted and intelligent individual, like him or not, you can't take anything from him. He'll be what he'll be, long after your absurdities are dissed....
Probably around 190
Chess IQ at least. His brain is wired for chess.
I'll say it's 518.
BEST QUOTE YET. I got tested in the AirForce and scored 192. I.Q. does not mean anything. My proof is that I am am unknown to the world while people with MUCH lower I.Q's are famous, powerful, wealthy etc...but if I had to make an educated guess, I would say Magnus is 200+...at 10 he had an intellectual understanding of chess that weant beyond the average 20 year olds..(even Master 20 years olds.) since he was able to compete at a level DOUBLE his age then his I.Q. must be double by the average which happens to be an even 100.
520 is genius.
