Magnus Carlsen is an embarrassment


This thread and the OP who made this is just pure cringe




Maybe computers have made today's players stronger. Today everyone uses calculators to solve simple math problems....just plug in the numbers. Years ago you solved with slide rules and brain power.  Let's suppose Morphy was born in 2000, grew up playing chess and had all the apps and engines we had do you suppose he would fare today?

What I think we can all agree on is that we are in the weakest era in the history of chess. Magnus Carlsen, Nakamura, Caruana, So, all would be destroyed by Fischer, Kasparov, capablanca, Morphy. 

A lot of people tend to think that legends of the past are better then players now, but instead of taking the top 10 of the 2000s era like you did with our era, you took world champions... Also Carlsen is already arguably top5 players of all time


Draw your way to the top of the pile


Caruana is certainly more inspiring, Carlsen may have the superior playing skill (which I value less).




I'm cool

Magnus has dominated the world for the past several years. Whatever he does, he finds a way to win. Time alone will tell whether any grandmaster will be able to figure him out. I can’t wait to see
Chess will soon become the kindergarten game in the 2040

Magnus Carlsen is an absolute joke. The man has absolutely no heart whatsoever. 

Tie score going into the final game of the World Chess Championship and he gets a big advantage and instead of trying to convert it offers a draw. Where’s the competitive drive? Where’s the belief in himself? Can you imagine Fischer or Kasparov offering a draw in that position?

Just disgusting behavior by a reigning world champion. No respect for competition whatsoever. I hope Caruana destroys him in the tiebreak. It would serve him right. 

I have given my thoughts, and  now it’s your turn Was this the most disgusting behavior by a reigning champion in world chess championship history?

Thats his choice, none of your business.
