Chess God Wins Three Matches Simultaneously — While Blindfolded

Subscribe to TheFW on

This guy is really good.

Magnus Carlsen, 24, is not only the top-ranked chess player in the world, he’s also the top-ranked chess player in history. He’s on top of his profession. Basically, he’s the LeBron James of rooks, the Taylor Swift of pawns, the Jennifer Lawrence of checkmates.

At the recent Sohn Investment Conference, Carlsen took on three men in three different games while he was blindfolded. He took them all down with the ease of lifting a bishop off the board.

Yup, Carlsen seems to have this chess thing down pat. Maybe it’s time to give something else a try, like Hungry Hungry Hippos or Clue because he’s clearly just too good at chess.

You can watch the full video of all three matches below.
