Default Magnus Carlsen


What is going on with Magnus? At the Euro Team championship he is
playing Pelletier. A strong player but not in Magnus class and in an
endgame Magnus with white no less has an advantage. Then Magnus
blunders a piece away and loses the game. He has definitely lost his
edge somewhere. When you reach your goal in life then staying there is
harder than getting there.

Yes, true, or he's got girlfriend problems. Anyway he bounced back vs Leko.

Looks like he bounced back against everybody. Seems like he only gets motivated
when he's ticked off.
