Who is the best person to beat Magnus Carlsen?

Giri?

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

Stolen_Authenticity

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} .. { ;

Fab or Levon

Probably whoever has the most upper body strength.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
