How long Magnus Carlsen will stay as a world champion?

ESP-918

Take a guess, what do you think?

3 decades?

In the last world championship he barely won. And in October this year he went 435 consecutive days without winning any classical tournament. So maybe he doesn't have much time.

aronian might be the next one

Longbridge

He probably became so good because he was born in the age of computer chess and so was able to practice far more than previous grandmasters. He is 27 now do he has probably been practicing on computers and on the internet for 20 years. Thanks to the internet and computer chess software anyone can learn to become a great chess player without the need to find other people to play chess with. He must practice for several hours each day.

Maybe Caruana this year?

He was on Instagram yesterday trash talking about being 27, world champion for 5 years, and he's bored... he is good though, and seems to be more willing to play than Bobby was ;-)

I think he can make it to 30 before he loses the title. I don't think he'll lose it because his opponent is better either, I think he'll lose it because he has nothing more to prove and is losing interest. He'll have around 15 mil in net worth and won't be financially motivated so it'll come down to "why keep trying so hard, I've put in enough work."

"i think he can not hold Levan Aronian, karjakin and fabiano development"

Karjakin still has big problems trying to get into the top ten and is slightly older than Carlsen, while Aronian already is on the "wrong" side of 35.

 Magnus will break every record in chess, including longest world champion. He is a league above all else and is not working half as hard.

Not a chance. Lasker twice went 11 years between title matches, and then he could pick Janowski instead of Capablanca when he did play. No one today can keep the title for close to 30 years given the frequent and short matches against qualified opponents.

Lasker did it for 25 years no? Well 20 more years to go. The player to dethrone Magnus is probably not even born yet. Chess in the 21st C. is just too easy for him!

I'm sure he will stay world champion at least until tomorrow.

Lasker was champion for 22 years.

Magnus might loose in a close match....

Carlsen is the strongest player ever.  The stars would have to align just right for any challenger to defeat him in a match.  I think he'll remain champion for at least another 10 years.  If FIDE were to establish a tournament to determine World Champion, Carlsen might lose the title that way, but even then, I wouldn't bet against him.

Even so...Go Fabi!
