Magnus Carlsen Solves VERY HARD CHESS PUZZLE – CHECKMATE in 2 Moves

187 Comments

  1. With white try rook b3 Checkmate in 1?

  2. He’s so cool and brilliant at the same time. The chess community is very lucky to have him.

  3. Only move pawn beside queen checkmate

  4. Also there is another mate in 2 i solved
    First pawn b5 (discover check to king by queen)
    Now this will be forced mate.. if he lift the queen to d4, rook e3 is checkmate

    I can't believe i did it in just 2 to 3 mins
    EDIT: 😂BUT AFTER THINKING MORE I UNDERSTAND THAT THE FIRST CHECK COULD BE SACED BY ROOK.. IN THIS CASE IF YOU GIVE DISCOVER CHECK WITH BISHOP .. HE'LL STOP BY PAWN.. WELL I WAS NEAR BUT I AM THINKING HOW GENIUS IS MAGNUS HE KNEW THAT ALREADY ❤❤
    WELL IM NEAR 1000 ELO

  5. The chess board is so small at the start its so hard to see just make Magnus Carlsen smaller.

  6. I hate being put on the spot. I freeze and forget simple answers.

  7. Magnus was like "come on girl, i am the world champion"

  8. I got it right because i paused it on the start the mind processing gotbit right

  9. So, I don't quite understand what the REAL answer is here. Can someone lay it out for my simpleton mind, move by move?

  10. well, I was faster than Magnus to find the answer, but I was slower to evaluate it's correctness.

  11. From White side Checkmate in two
    Rf3 X f4 sacrifing the roookk!!!
    Black king is double check therefore he have to take on Ke4 X Rf4 after that Rh5 move to f5 its a beautiful checkmate

  12. I'm looking and trying to understand it but I just don't get it at all. It would be nice to have an animation for that.

  13. It's b5, queen d4 and queen x queen d4 and checkmate😊😊😊

  14. If we’re white won’t we do pawn b5?

  15. I was thinking Qa3 followed by Rc3. Not smart enough to figure out why this wont work 😂

    Edit: oh the cheeky pawn on f4

  16. Would of sacked the Queen for m7 just for style points 😈

  17. White to move? Rook x f4 king takes bishop a2

  18. I see he is a bit mad because he taught it was harder, so he didn't check a8 which is typical.

  19. I took 10 minutes to work out this isn’t checkers.

  20. Two minutes. Not a problem. Okay. Just remind me, which one is the king and which one queen?

  21. There is another, he took the confusingly brutal route though.

  22. Where ??? I need the move pieces one..idk dont understand about D4 bla bla BLA

  23. Pawn moves B5 then , White is attacking the Black Queen blocks then Rook to e3 mate

  24. ✍️Magnus Carlsen ;-
    -Self-confidence is very important. If you don’t think you can win, you will take cowardly decisions in the crucial moments, out of sheer respect for your opponent. You see the opportunity but also greater limitations than you should. I have always believed in what I do on the chessboard, even when I had no objective reason to. It is better to overestimate your prospects than underestimate them.

  25. Rc3 is also a mate in 2 black will play f3 then Bxf3 mate…. Works also with all positions with R on the 3rd line

    I can see more than 1 solution to this puzzle wich is i feel is not that hard, please correct me if I'm wrong somewhere

  26. Ah I think I'm also a little good because I found it in 6 minutes

  27. Only thing that comes to mind as watch him solve this puzzle is “chess is hard” 😂

  28. Sorry i wasn't listening. My eyes and ears were on the chick the entire clip.

  29. At first I thought b5, but then Rc4 makes you lose the queen. Still I don't see a forced move after Qa8 nor the mate at the next move 😵‍💫

  30. Even if they had given 200 years I would not even considor this Qa8.

  31. En cuanto vi el short, puse el problema en el tablero y lo intenté. Acabó de terminar. Me tomó 30 minutos y Magnus lo vio en segundos.
