As we already reported, Magnus Carlsen presented a chess app in Oslo, Norway. During the presentation he played a game against the program facing 14-year-old himself. Check out the photos of the event.

The world champion commented on the game. Namely he was uncertain if he played the opening chosen by the program back when he was 14 years old. 

The creators of the program invited the guests to taste the beer "Carlsen" - alcohol content 5.3%.

  • On the free day of the Shamkir tournament there is traditionally a football match. As last year, four teams were playing. In the semifinals, the chessplayers of Azerbaijan and the rest of the world, alas, lost to the teams of journalists and organisers/sponsors. But Magnus Carlsen played in the final as a guest for the organisers/sponsors' team, strengthening an already strong team. He was the outstanding player on the pitch.
