Blog Chess Discussion Coaching Discussion Forum

Today we are looking at a player that is truly a legend in his own time…of course our time too. An inspiration to young people and maybe even some older players. Be as it may in my books he is one of the greats!!!


If you have not tried the app play Magnus…you should definitely give it a go.

Until next time burn the chess candle at both ends.
