Who is the best person to beat Magnus Carlsen?

  • #1

    Giri?

  • #2

    That person has not been born yet.

  • #3

    Capablanca. He's dead though, so I'd say Caruana.

  • #4

    There are none, in the near-term, future; Though, I suspect, it Will e one of those players, already known {by some}; A minimum, of 5 years younger, than 'Magnus'; And probably; A Real 'up-and-comer' in there 'own right'!

    Their one-day, hypothetical 'clash'; May not even materialize; If, 'Magnus' decides to take up, 'professional-modeling'; Invest, in becoming a 'football'/soccer-owner; Or even try his hand, at 'tiddlywinks'! ..{not likely} .. { ;

  • #5

    Forrest Gump

  • #6

    Wei Yi

  • #7
    [COMMENT DELETED]
  • #8

    Fab or Levon

  • #9

    Probably whoever has the most upper body strength.

  • #10

    I hope Magnus breaks the record of Lasker and is WC for 30 years or more ! 

  • #11

    Magnus said in an interview once that Levon Aronian is the player he struggles the most against, due to his playing style. But I don't think even Aronian can topple Carlsen. Not yet, at least.

  • #12

    Me...

  • #13

    I came into the thread with the intention of writing "not me" - but you got there just before...

  • #14

    Aronian looks pretty far from catching Carlsen.

    It's just like Kasparov pointed out Ivanchuk. Ivanchuk had an amazing win that I remember against Kasparov - boxed his king in, beat him in thirty moves. 

    But he was really far from catching him. Some champions look like they'll rule forever. 

  • #15

    Some years ago, it seemed Caruana had good chances, but it doesn't look like it as far as recent results go. Giri has a knack for drawing against Carlsen, but winning is another matter. It's hard to say who could dethrone Carlsen. My guess is Wei Yi in 7-8 years.

    Maybe when humans can fusion to machines and connect to the internet...
