Unknowingly Beating the World Chess Champion

  • Опубликовано: 9 сен 2018
  • I played Magnus Carlsen. I didn't even know it. I won.
    Analyze the game here: lichess.org/QzY2veh4
    I had to upload this video twice since I forgot to include the game analysis in the first upload.

    Time to retire chess and do something else. You can try to play hockey and start from scratch.


    Nice win Eric,keep it up!

    First off I’d like to congratulate you on beating Magnus. It is not an easy feat by any means. However. And I’m not downplaying the win at all. But however, it is bullet chess. I believe in your skills, IM Eric, but if it had been say even a 3 minute blitz, do you think you still would have performed as well?

    A thrilling back and forth game where both sides missed opportunities.... likey because they where both playing way too fast. You can really see how eager Carlson is as he charges forward waiting for the pawn check that never came... Good game guys!

    Jokes on you-Carlsen was getting head from the Norwegian Miss Universe candidate while he was playing you. He finished right when he hung the rook, so all in all, pretty good performance for Carlsen, considering the circumstances. Nice try though.

    Being anonymous is genius on Magnus's part. I'm sure he see's much better play that way. It would be nearly impossible for an amateur player to play well when knowingly playing him.

    why is it that chess players like to attribute a win to the opening they played when in fact they won the game because the other player hung a piece or played a blunder in an equal end-game??
    so did you win because you played the Budapest or because he hung the rook in an equal end game?

    I remember chess being more of a thinking game rather than a reactionary game? I think classic chess is the only real chess format. Anything else is circus like.

    But seriously, even with all of the caveats there aren't many people alive who can claim to have beaten the best in the world. Congratulations!

    He was playing on a cell phone and it was lagging a little from what I heard about this incident. But a win is a win. It is harder to move as a fast on a phone than on a laptop, computer, or tablet. Take the win nonetheless.

    1 minute game,it is not chess......only premove with good cumputer,strong internet connection and good mouse.
    Nothing tactically,no strategy,no plan,no analysis,only premoving.
    With such 1 min time even low rated player can beat World GM.
    Your lessons are very nice,but in my view thats not any achievement to beat World Champion in 1min or 3 min game.
