Magnus Carlsen


Chess prodigy who was simply ranked the very best participant on the planet, with a ranking of 2872, in Feb of 2013, that was the highest ranking in the annals of the overall game. He could assemble jigsaw puzzles at age group 2, and was trained chess at age group of 5; by 13 he previously end up being the world’s youngest grandmaster. Not really limited by chess, he also got on the modeling work for G-Star Raw’s 2010 marketing campaign and was voted one of the ‘sexiest males of 2013’ by Cosmopolitan. His dad taught him the fundamentals of the overall game, including different chess positions, and became his supervisor. Movie director J.J. Abrams apparently offered him a component in his fresh Star Trek film, like a chess participant from the near future, but Carlsen cannot obtain the function visa to consider the part.
