Magnus Carlsen IQ
Many people are curious what Magnus Carlsens’ IQ is because of his chess accomplishments, but because he’s never taken a test we can only guess. Magnus could prove his excellent memory skills at such a young age. At just five years old, he memorized the populations, flags and locations of all the countries in the world. A skill needed to compete and be successful at chess that Magnus acquired is long-term memorization. When comparing to other professional chess players like Bobby Fischer who has an IQ of 180 and Judit Polgar at 170, it is believed that Carlsens’ IQ is around 190. Magnus holds the record for the highest Elo rating which is a system that calculates the skill-level of players in zero-sum games.
Magnus Carlsen Retired
About a year ago there was a rumor that Magnus Carlsen retired after losing a chess match to an amateur named Max Deutsch. This was simply an April Fools’ prank that the Youtuber Agadmator started. It stated that Deutsch played Carlsen in a rematch after losing to him in 2017. There was a condition that if he lost he will donate $1 million to charity and that Carlsen would have to retire. The truth is that Magnus hasn’t retired. He has however expressed a desire to quite while he was at the top. Carlsen has stated it was still most likely to happen that way, but nothing is definitive yet, and he has changed his opinion before.
