A bit of fun

From Chessbase where you can play the game

In the above video we see a bullet game, played in Kragerø (Norway), between Magnus Carlsen and his second Laurent Fressinet. It was posted on August 6 2013 on Magnus’ Facebook page, where it apprears with the remark: “Winning a blitz game against my good friend at Kragerø. He’s too weak and too slow, but a very nice guy” and a big smiley. The video shows the world number one getting into trouble against his second (ranked number three in France), but then pulling off a wonderful mate in the middle of the board. Once again the Carlsen strategy seems to be: always give your opponent ample opportunity to make mistakes.
