Magnus Carlsen clinched his fourth World Rapid Champion title today in Kazakhstan. Being asked “when will he stop winning world titles” at the press conference after the games, Carlsen responded: “I’ll stop when somebody stops me“.
Commenting on the event, Carlsen noted that this was “a really tough tournament” and that it’s “really hard to win on demand. I ran the risk of having zero world championship titles at the end of this tournament, so it was important to me to try and do well here, and it means the world to me right now,” said Carlsen.
