World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen spends evening with Norwegian Young Talents

Posted by World Chess Championship 2013 News Blog Friday, December 13, 2013
Norwegian “Dream Team” – the luckiest chess talents in the world. Who else could boast about getting a two-hour instruction by the champion himself? :-) All the pictures and a report from the event are at the Stormester & Stormester Web site:

It was a great evening where World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen spent more than two hours with Norway's junior chess talents. Magnus Carlsen spoke individually to each player about chess training, playing tournaments and their aspirations. Much of the time, of course, was spent studying and analysing chess games. Carlsen also took up games he had played at the World Chess Championship in Chennai versus Viswanathan Anand. (Lots of photos at the Facebook page of Stormester & Stormester)

The Unforgettable Norway Chess Promotional Video with Magnus Carlsen - The Fearless

Posted by World Chess Championship 2013 News Blog Saturday, September 7, 2013
This special music video was shot with Magnus Carlsen for a promotion of the Norway Chess Tournament 2013. It was Produced for Norway Chess by Genesis Film and features the Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen in Norwegian).

The Norway Chess 2013 Super Tournament was held from May 7th to 18th, 2013 in four different locations in the Stavanger region. It featured Magnus Carlsen, Levon Aronian, Vladimir Kramnik, Vishy Anand and other top ten players. 

Norway Chess made the promotional video with scenes of Magnus playing against Kristoffer Madland, a Norwegian Youth Chess Champion, on a giant chess board atop the Pulpit Rock above Lysefjorden in Norway. 

This promo video features the chess prodigy himself with Hanne Sørvaag.  Hanne Margrethe Fredriksen Sørvaag, 33, is a famous Norwegian singer/songwriter, who was born in Stavanger.

The video surely takes your breath away every time you watch it and captures the true spirit of Magnus Carslen - The Fearless: The human who dared go where no chess player has ever been before.
