    Magnus Carlsen Banter Blitz

    Not sure if these have been mentioned before, but there are a lot of youtube vids from chess24 of Magnus playing blitz and giving his thoughts while he does so. Very entertaining, and a great insight into the thought of the WC.

    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    This article on Carlsen may have been mentioned elsewhere, but it's certainly relevant here. It covers both the Banter Blitz and this:
    “DrDrunkenstein” is one of many aliases Magnus Carlsen has played under during the past two years, when he went on a killing spree across the speed chess tournaments of the internet. Since winter 2017, Carlsen has taken to livestreaming his games on a variety of platforms, which has provided a surprisingly entertaining window into the mind of an all-time great.

    One from the other side of the board with Fressinet. Very funny.

    Best of 16 game match with Cheparinov played a few days ago. He gives his thoughts on upcoming candidates at the end.
