Magnus Carlsen born yesterday November 30, 1990 is the highest ranked chess player in the world and the reigning chess champion in three different styles. He was first ranked number one at age 19 and five years later he is still on top! We had the amazing opportunity of witnessing his talent recently in Monterey, CA as he destroyed five opponents simultaneously in 30 min, blindfolded! Suffice to say, if Magnus was a chess piece, he would be King.
