Magnus Carlsen

Born Sven Magnus Øen Carlsen on the 30th November 1990 in Tonsberg, Norway, he is the son of the chemical engineer Sigurn Øen and Henrik Albert Carlsen, who is an IT consultant. Throughout his childhood, Magnus moved a lot, living in Espoo, Finland, then in Brussels, Belgium, before the family returned to Norway, where they settled in Lommedalen, Bærum, but then sometime later moved again, this time to Haslum. He started showcasing intellectual inferiority at a rather young age, assembling jig-saw puzzles intended for children aged between 10 and 14, when he was only four years old. A year later, his father, a chess enthusiast started teaching him this magnificent game, although he took little to no interest at first, but from is seventh year he started playing chess more seriously. Carlsen participated in his first tournament—the youngest division of the 1999 Norwegian Chess Championship—at the age of 8 years and 7 months, and scored 6½/11.

He steadily began participating in more prominent events, and throughout 2000 he played in more than 300 rated tournament matches, and it was in October 2002 that he reached the No. 6 in the European Under-12 Championship in Peniscola, while in November he shared first place in the World Under-12 Championship in Heraklio, next to Ian Nemomniachtchi on a tiebreak.
In 2004 he made the news when he won a match in the C group of the Corus chess tournament in Wijk aan Zee, losing only one match in the group which earned him his first GM norm, and just a few months later he obtained his Grandmaster title.


He continued his rise to stardom in the next several years, and it was in 2013 that he became the new World Chess Champion by defeating Viswanathan Anand. Since then, Magnus has been the ruling World Chess Champion, winning six consecutive championships.
