Magnus in The Telegraph"I’m not a freak, I’m just curious," Magnus Carlsen was quoted yesterday in the English newspaper The Telegraph. For their series 'My perfect weekend' the Norwegian was interviewed by Max Davidson, on the occasion of the start of the London Chess Classic next Wednesday.

Carlsen speaks personally, and in the first person. There's not much about finally entering his twenties, and not much about his 'perfect weekend' either, in fact. It's a personal description of the life of a chess professional, who doesn't tend to have Monday to Friday working weeks, and so no real weekends either. (We know the feeling. ;-) )The interview has some interesting personal tidbits, and as always it's nice to see a chess personality in mainstream media. You can read the interview here.




Update: Another participant of the London Chess Classic, Viswanathan Anand, was interviewed by the Hamburger Abendblatt. You can read it in German at Chess Tigers or try the not too terrible Google Translation into English.
