Carlsen chess simul in Oslo: Cool chess video

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Time for a Magnus Carlsen video. Here is the current World No. 1 playing 20 opponents at Sjakkhuset in Oslo back in August 2009. Among the opponents were celebrities (Bård Vegar Solhjell, Norwegian minister of education, rapper Magdi etc) and some strong chess players (WIM Sheila Sahl, FM Joran Aulin Jansson etc). Carlsen won all 20 games.

    I love simuls. But not usually titled players play simuls I think. I heard that they have a rating cut off limit for simul players. Maybe depending upon how many players are there. Simuls never fail to fascinate me.
