Carlsen: "This time it’s the real deal"
World Champion Magnus Carlsen returned to Hamburg yesterday evening with the fourth "Play Live Challenge", a clock simultaneous against twelve amateur, beginners and club players who are users of his Play Magnus mobile app. Carlsen, who has never yielded even a half point in prior editions of this event, won easily 12-0 and then gave each of the players some chess lessons in front of the live audience. ChessBase snagged him for a brief chat. | Photo: Lisa Meinen
