Daniel King on Magnus and the Masterclass

10/25/2021 – On 26 November Magnus Carlsen and Ian Nepomniachtchi will play the first game of their World Championship match in Dubai. A good opportunity to ask Daniel King about his work for the updated ChessBase Master Class about Carlsen, about Carlsen as a person, King's favourite Carlsen game, and of course, King's predictions for the match. As part of the interview King shows two games of the current World Champion - one against Sergey Karjakin, and one against Anish Giri, which is one of King's favourite endgames by Carlsen.
