Magnus Carlsen (archived)
|Apr-03-18|| ||nok: I love how there's always a nerd saying he's n months older than X and rated ε lower. Clearly he has no future.|
|Apr-03-18|| ||ndg2: Well Hou has over 2650. I consider 2600 the minimum ELO to not look totally embarrassing. Doubtful he can reach that within one year even with his ELO gain in the open (40 points).|
|Apr-03-18|| ||whiteshark: In a post tournament interview Vincent said that he's not sure he should insist on playing the Grenke Classic next year. "They are so much better." |

|Apr-03-18|| ||varishnakov: I think they should post the games from the Open here on chessgames.|
|Apr-03-18|| ||Solon: When Carlsen won the C-group in Wijk in 2004 I said to a friend that he would be World Champion one day because Ēmany kids can win against world class players but winning tournaments, that is entirely differentĒ.|
So I have no doubt that this guy will be WC in not so many years.
Now to my question: can you experts recommend some brilliant games of his? Which are the best games in the database?
|Apr-03-18|| ||happyjuggler0: He has good initials for a top chess player. !? or ?!|
|Apr-03-18|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi Solon,
Well spotted, here Technical Draw has the rights to that one with his 2004 comment:
"The Search for Bobby Fischer is over."
Magnus Carlsen (kibitz #34)
|Apr-03-18|| ||FSR: <BobbieM: Youíre counting a draw vs Riff as a win.>|
No, I counted it as a draw - 2503 (Riff's rating).
|Apr-03-18|| ||Solon: Sally, I didnít mean to brag, just to point out that winning strong tournaments is completely different from making a draw in a rapid game against Kasparov when you are 13, or even winning such a game.|
Vincentís victory is even more impressive than Carlsenís win in Wijk aan Zee and Iím completely convinced he will be number 1 one day.
|Apr-03-18|| ||FSR: <Solon> Ughur Ilyasli vs Vincent Keymer, 2016 is entertaining. His last-round game against Rapport is a cool example of a king flight from g8 to a8. I haven't seen any super-brilliancies. He is a positional player, so you don't see a lot of games where he sacs all his pieces. Here is the Rapport game:|
[Event "GRENKE Chess Open 2018"]

|Apr-03-18|| ||FSR: Incidentally, folks, crowning Keymer world champion is decidedly premature. There are 31 players so far who have become grandmasters before their 15th birthday (something Keymer has yet to do). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chess... Of those, Carlsen is the world champion, Ponomariov was the FIDE world champion, Leko came within one game of becoming champion, and Hou Yifan was the women's world champion. Most, possibly all, of the others aren't going to make it.|
|Apr-03-18|| ||saffuna: Some prodigies become great. Some fall short. Too early to say with Keymer. I'd say it's a safe bet that he'll reach 2700, though.|
I was really impressed with his analysis of the Rapport game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPC...
Calm and objective, very mature.
|Apr-03-18|| ||fisayo123: <FSR> Keymer barely plays out of Germany and even then he's not so active in tournaments with GM norm possibilities. |
<There are 31 players so far who have become grandmasters before their 15th birthday (something Keymer has yet to do)>
If Keymer was as active as some of the other prodigies out there about his age, he could very well have been a GM by now. It's nowhere near as black and white as your statement makes it.
Judging by what I saw from him in some of the cadet youth championships (and hence the 2nd kibitz on this thread which is from me) Keymer is as good as any player in the world U-14 right now. He's just not as active and/or playing enough of the right tournaments so he can't improve his rating that quickly or get GM norms.
|Apr-03-18|| ||Sally Simpson: I don't think you are bragging Solon, I said well spotted, agree with you the way this lad is going he will up there challenging within the next few years.|
At the moment he is Prince Vince. Will it be King Keymer.
|Apr-03-18|| ||alexmagnus: Only four players became GMs at a younger age than Keymer is now. And he has three months for two norms to remain in 4th (the four players are Karjakin, Abdusattorov, Negi and Carlsen)|
|Apr-03-18|| ||alexmagnus: And who said you should become GM young to become a top player anyway?Mamedyarov got his title at 17.|
|Apr-03-18|| ||saffuna: I hope he looks to improve his game rather than watch his ELO or earn GM norms. When he's an adult nobody will care how he played when he was 14 or 15. They'll care about how he's playing at that moment.|
Peter Leko was extremely careful and risk-averse as a teenager, drawing game after game rather trying to win if it involved some chance of losing. I wonder if that had a negative effect on his later career.
|Apr-03-18|| ||alexmagnus: <I wonder if that had a negative effect on his later career.>|
Did it? He didn't become world champion because he was <not> able to <draw> the final game of the WC match..
|Apr-03-18|| ||Sally Simpson: Vincent is possibly gifted at music as well. His dad in a concert pianist, mum plays in an orchestra and he plays the piano.|
Maybe best to follow the musical path and join a rock 'n' roll band. He will meet a more stable bunch of people than chess players. :)
|Apr-03-18|| ||FSR: <alexmagnus> No one said it. Becoming GM at an extremely young age is neither necessary nor sufficient to become a great player.|
|Apr-03-18|| ||keypusher: <alexmagnus: And who said you should become GM young to become a top player anyway? Mamedyarov got his title at 17.>|
What a geezer! Did they test him for Geritol?
|Apr-03-18|| ||Solon: Sally, you donít think Peter Leko is stable? No, but I know what you mean, but still, If you are so good at chess as Vincent is you donít want to switch to a career in music where the competition is potentially much harder.|
If he continues to improvebI think he will stick with chess.
|Apr-04-18|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi Solon,
..."to switch to a career in music where the competition is potentially much harder."
Have you heard the latest pop/rock music, there is no competition now The Beatles are gone.
Drugs, sex and more money than a horse has ass and all he has to do is bang out three chords on his dad's piano. A gift he has already mastered.
Or days and days in front of a computer screen listening to Peter Leko telling him how to draw games and then off to some 2nd rate hotel, where smashing up a room would be an improvement to sit opposite a smelly, spotty, scratching human who is trying to trap, trick and humiliate you.
Chess is the preserve of people like you and me and everyone else here. We are just no good at anything else.
|Jul-29-18|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: 7Ĺ/10 at this year's XtraCon Open in Denmark, which finished today, netted the young lad his 2nd GM norm.|
