Fischer like performance from Magnus Carlson

Magnus Force in China!
His last five games – to win four and a half games out of five against super-grandmasters rated over 2,700, including beating the World No. 1 Topalov a queen down (OK that last bit wasn’t true) is playing at a rating strength of 3143. A very amazing little 18 year old. Have a look at the games here. Chessbase says “words fail us”. But that’s Chessbase. When have words ever failed us here at the Troppodome?

The final result? Incredible!
