Timelines of all chess players: Place of birth, games played, achievements, personal life, FIDE rating, hobbies, net worth, and many more.
Chess is a big part of my life. It’s a game that I have dedicated my free time to playing and improving at. And it’s also a game that has taught me so much. It has built and strengthened my foundational knowledge of basic philosophy, the sciences, mathematics, and psychology.
And just like in each chess match, every aspect of life offers multiple choices; certain moves will result in different directions, but all of them are worth taking!
I’ve learned a lot of lessons from chess, but these are my top five:
Magnus Carlsen (Sven Magnus Øen Carlsen), was born Nov 30, 1990, in Tønsberg, Norway.
His father enjoyed the game more than Carlsen at first, but he came to like it even more with time. He started playing chess at the age of 5.
By 7, he was a skilled player, having beaten his father in their first game together when he was 10.
