Why did Magnus Carlsen call his opponent? | Carlsen vs Karthikeyan | Qatar Masters 2023

World no.1 Magnus Carlsen faced off against 2611 rated Karthikeyan Murali in the 7th round of the Qatar Masters 2023. Magnus played boldly and imaginatively, but not 100% correct chess. Would he manage to escape unscathed or would his opponent punish him for that. Check out the game along with the commentary by IM Sagar Shah.

  1. About prize money . I guess the most famous players has personal appearance fees , they dont need necessarily to win the tournament to earn living here. Lower rated players dont have that and they make maximum effort to beat top players.

  2. Everyone want to see how Magness lost 😢😢😢😢

  3. The Indian is wearing an eye glass that is why Magnus lose concentration.

  4. Karthikeyan was wearing a wrist band and a black shirt 🙂 lol

  5. Brilliant game by Karthikeyan and equally brilliant sportsmanship by Magnus.

  6. Yes, of course it was a good game from Karthikeyan. But come one. This was very bold from Carlsen. Two pieces for a rook. Carlsen didn't saw this? Yah, right

  7. Jao golf khelo …

    (just kidding, didnt mean to hate anyone)

  8. Keep covering board from top. It will be easy to analyze

  9. Bro I think you need to work on the thumbnails. They’re too silly and sometimes glorifying the foreign players

  10. I think Magnus' career peak has been done away with…

  11. Magnus gambled with BXh6 in his opponents time pressure and lost. But all credit to his opponent for playing so well.

  12. The Easiest-The Best-The Toughest-The Rest says:

    I love the way arbiters let them sit back and analyse their games, they never allow people of lower rating even into the hall after their game concludes in most of our local tournaments.

  13. what's wrong with magnus , He is not performing well in this tournament.

  14. It’s very confusing the people watching😖

  15. Trust me. Karthikeyan Murali is Pragg's second. They are in great shape together.

  16. Magnus really likes indian chess players, he knows indian are more dedicated to this sport than any others. Indian will dominate in the near future when magnus retires and falls. The goat himself said it, chess is in good hands, with "d" 😅😂

  17. Performanya magnus semakin berkurang

  18. A great player of all time in chess history…teaching his apponents after losing the game ..a great great sportsmanship..hats off for Carlsen.. as well as kartikayon..that he is willingness to.learn.

  19. Not fair. Carlsen was distracted by Karthikeyan's black shirt and the threads he wore on his wrist.

  20. Huge Congratulations to Karthik🧡Beating Magnus on board is really Magnificent🔥
    Bhagwan bless you alot🙏🧡

  21. Magnus stayed to analyze, because the youngster gained mad respect from him

  22. Love the way Karthiken was composed and relaxed while playing a winning position against the world champion 🎉

  23. Maturity is what when you realise the commentator is even better then magnus and karthikeyan😂

  24. 8:09
    What if Magnus played Bishop A4 instead of Queen F3 ?????

  25. Commentator is like on the side of Magnus

  26. Whenever Carlsen loses to an Indian player he doesn't doubt about cheating or something cause he knows how good and hard working Indian players are.
