    He was probably never tested. He said he did not know in an interview. But here is the interesting thing; he admitted that many times he did not calculate moves, but went by how a certain move "felt". This feeling in reality is the result of the synthesized outcome of thousands of games , subconsciously. This is similar to Koltanowski's description of his talent in blindfold chess. So it may be more interesting to now his EQ (emotional quotient).

    I thinki players like Carlsen have a huge staff of Granmasters proviging him with variations, openings, player-profiles soup to nuts. Players like Carlsen are fed with newest comp-lines (Fischer also critizised that, as far as i remember). That means  they dont need intelligence nor creativity. The only task they follow up is to recall lines, patterns and moves the up to date chessprograms gave them.This is professional sports, we only see the event, but not behind the scene.

    Since an amateur has not such a staff behind working him, we have no chance.

    So, you can find it on the net:

    Garry Kasparov: 190

    Bobby Fischer: 167

    Judith Polgar: 170

    Robert Byrne: 170

    But Carlsen, should we guess, would be around 180-190

    # 50 in the world is pretty good if you ask me, she could easily kick our butts.

    TwoBit,

      Probably not that it matters a great deal, but the figure I have heard

      for Fischer's IQ is most often : 187 not 167.

    He doesn't need a test, he's figuring it out on his own...

    He can't be too smart.  He spends all his time playing stupid board games.
