This week the official website of Magnus Carlsen was launched. From now on you can find information about the top chess player and fashion model on MagnusCarlsen.com. For the moment it's still pretty basic but we expect more content will be added soon.

The website has six main sections: Home, About, Blog, Sponsors, Press and Contact. The home page shows some photos from the G-Star campaign and talks about the current period: a 'Busy fall season'. Below that there's a short bit of the 'About' section and the sponsors logos.

Next to that is arguably the most interesting part of perhaps the whole site: 'My latest tweets'. Apparently Magnus is on Twitter now too, and, yes, his ID is magnuscarlsen. Unfortunately the blog section only links to his sponsors' websites, where we expected to find Magnus' blog posts cross-posted.

Peter Doggers joined a chess club a month before turning 15 and still plays for it. He used to be an active tournament player and holds two IM norms.

Peter has a Master of Arts degree in Dutch Language & Literature. He briefly worked at New in Chess, then as a Dutch teacher and then in a project for improving safety and security in Amsterdam schools.

Between 2007 and 2013 Peter was running ChessVibes, a major source for chess news and videos acquired by Chess.com in October 2013.

As our Director News & Events, Peter writes many of our news reports. In the summer of 2022, The Guardian’s Leonard Barden described him as “widely regarded as the world’s best chess journalist.”

In October, Peter's first book The Chess Revolution will be published!
