  1. That makes no sense. The interviewer plays 4 moves of the Petroff defence and Magnus is able to recognize the game? They must have taken the most famous games with that defence or he just got lucky with that one.

  2. I can believe all of them except Anand vs Zapata. He played 2 moves and that position has been played thousands of times.

  3. From the entertaintment industry. FINDS IT "It was a big hint though".


  4. Next time you misplace your phone or keys remember this clip and absorb the pain humbly.

  5. I want this chess board! Can ANYONE find me a link?

  6. Bro I can't even remember what I had for breakfast.

  7. This kind of memory must take up the space of other memories. I bet he can’t remember his sisters name

  8. I feel degraded by the fact that he is also just a fellow human being! 😀

  9. could somebody shoot those violin players? Thanks.

  10. His gf: when was our first date?
    Magnus: hmmm……

  11. carlsen must have lots of african american genes to be that smart.

  12. Bit like me remembering all the girls I hooked up with over the years in all the gin joints around the world.

  13. What did I just watched? 😐😐The reaction of the interviewer is like- is he even human?

  14. This video still publicly shows the amount of dislikes.

  15. If there is not hints given, if there is no trickery, then this is something of the most impressive memory recalls I can fathom. Thousands of chess games must have been played. How can u remember the position for a random game 50 years back?

  16. proof that aliens exist, and they are among us

  17. Carlsen's face is slowing trying to collapse on itself. Fascinating.

  18. Personally it is hardly if I think of raising the toilet seat before peeing.

  19. When he gets old he won't be able to remember his own name.

  20. Really WOW!! Thats a world champion all hes life is chess chess24 hours

  21. Magnus the only guy who can't say: "Ahh, forget it"

  22. I did not know this about Magnus. How is it possible for a human brain to remeber all this?

  23. Magnus has a whole database in his head. No wonder he plays like an engine, he is an engine

  24. If there is a guy who has memorized all of the openings and all of the counter openings, there is no beating that guy! And that guy is Magnus Carlsen. Inconceivable!

  25. It’s amazing but not that unusual. Like if you asked pro footballers clips of famous matches, sort of pattern recognition. Still amazing tho

  26. Magnus can beat us at 3am on a Saturday in his sleep

  27. Tiny detail but I think it's a bit unfair to put Harry as the player while it was Ron who did all the work.

  28. The guy tells it is an openning let’s see if you will you be able to know. But some of those opening positions always begin with the same moves in the start. So it could be either Anand or Diren or anyone else. How he can define the player name?

  29. I have a friend who can do this. It's freaking amazing.

  30. He kinda looks a little like Wreck it Ralph ngl

  31. Really amazing to watch a super human 🧠…coming from a man with the long-term memory of a goldfish

  32. Compare this with the US 'President' supergenius who could barely utter; "Person, Woman, Man, Camera, TV".

  33. Garry Kasparov is Armenian-Jewish. He was born in the Soviet Union and has now the Russian nationality. So at least use the Soviet or the Russian flag. But definitely not the Azerbaijani flag, as he has never identified himself as an Azerbaijani, never had the Azerbaijani nationality, nor was he born in a country called Azerbaijan.

  34. damn….Magnus is such a cool person. Love this dude.

  35. Should be Ron's head instead of Harry's on the Harry Potter one, the absolute disrespect
