Magnus Carlsen: ‘I just want to win one more tournament!’

World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen hasn’t won a tournament since Altibox Norway Chess in mid-October, and even then a last-round loss to Levon Aronian took some of the gloss off the win. In the aftermath of losing the final of the Opera Euro Rapid to Wesley So, Magnus talked to Ilya Levitov about his motivation, how he feels the World Championship should be decided and much more. Magnus explained that when he was young he was “spooked” when he played Russians, since he thought they knew everything!
