Questions for Magnus

Magnus Carlsen

We received some great questions for the World Champion.

All questions received by 18:00 CET will be entered into a random drawing for a copy of Fritz 15 signed by Garry Kasparov, Vladimir Kramnik, Viswanathan Anand, and Carlsen himself!

Magnus has been busy lately, jet-setting about from his home in Norway to the World Cup in Tbilisi, the Isle of Man, and a simul in Singapore. He's now in Hamburg where he will be the special guest a health conference sponsored by Die Zeit newspaper and the star of the Play Live Challenge, an annual event put on by Play Magnus.

Early Friday, he'll be off again, this time to the "Champions Showdown" rapid and blitz exhibition in Saint Louis, USA.

But before that he joins us for his very first visit to the ChessBase HQ. And you can be there too! Tune in shortly after 18:00 for a live webcast Q & A and a look at one of his recent games.

You can watch on-demand above, or on the Ask the Experts category of the ChessBase Videos portal. Afterwards the interview will also be available for on-demand replay.
