World's Strongest Bullet Chess Tournament ft. Magnus Carlsen as DrNykterstein | LTA February 2019

  • Published: 11 February 2019
  • This is a 2-hour bullet chess tournament, Lichess Titled Arena (LTA) February 2019, I provided commentary on while specifically observing World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen compete. This tournament has quickly become the world's strongest, and in all likelihood fastest, bullet chess tournament. I livestreamed this event at Lichess Titled Arena February 2019 is held for titled chess players only, namely Grandmasters, International Masters, FIDE Masters, National Masters etc... Magnus Carlsen played under the account "DrNykterstein". This was the 11th "Titled Arena" held by Its $1,000 prize pool goes to the top 5 players, with 1st - $500, 2nd - $250, 3rd - $125, 4th - $75, and 5th - $50. This tournament was played on February 9th, 2019.

    I'm a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.

                    Nykter means sober in Norwegian. Carlsen calls himself now DrNykterstein (=DrSoberstein) instead of DrDrunkenstein.

Also Magnus is a genius at creating tactics with pushing pawns. Love the content
