Magnus Carlsen gives a London System lesson! ๐Ÿ‘‘

From one of Magnus Carlsen’s past Banter Blitz sessions he played this cool game where he dominated playing the London System. I reedited the clip with some background music to re-highlight this awesome tutorial how to win with the London system against high rated opponents. Here, with an aggressive pawn pushing strategy. Thanks for watching, liking, and supporting!


  1. this is why you castle when opponents' pawns get nearer lol

  2. This Magnus guy seems pretty clever, he should realy try to play som turnaments

  3. Beautiful! Castling looked scary, but man that h6 move was brutal!

  4. At the end of the video he said he castled on move 15, he instantly remembered when he castles on what exact move ๐Ÿคฏ

  5. Nice ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿคด๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿข๐Ÿข๐Ÿšถโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšถโ€โ™‚๏ธ

  6. Ryeah you have some tweaks yeah the chess I understand you are a genius but modelling seriously how in the hell did you become a model. You are good looking but not model material at least in the traditional sense. I mean you are short for starters and ….how are you a model???

  7. Love the elevator music gee reminds me to do my x-mas shopping early i suppose

  8. Hans Niemann will start winning against London system now.

  9. Wow! ๐Ÿ˜Š I am proud. Magnus playing my london system. โค

  10. He controlled the whole board with few moves

  11. Nice game, so the oppent missed to play G6 ? I think that would have bought time.

  12. He is laughing at the beginning of game because Nc3 and g4 concept was in Hans niemann's chessable jobava london course.

  13. Tf that music made me depressed . Whats its name if uk ?

  14. What color was Magnus? I guess this channel is for advanced players who dont need to be given that info?

  15. I might be alone there but the music choice is a bit confusing

  16. His handling of the opening is just awful, but he's playing a complete noob so know he can get away with it.

  17. Magnus masterclass but what is it with the miserable as fuck background music? Quite possibly the worst soundtrack to a video I have ever seen (and Iโ€™ve seen a lot of skiing videos ๐Ÿ˜‚).

  18. Marland T. โ€œRenโ€ Hรถek says:

    His kingside pawns literally went from the second rank all the way to the seventh rank and ended there

  19. 5โ€ฆBb4 is probably better than 5โ€ฆBe7; white typically responds with 6.Nge2 to avoid doubled pawns, and then after the bishop later gets kicked with a3, it retreats to e7, reaching positions similar to the game but the white knight on e2 is less optimally placed than on f3.

  20. This guy would be good at checkers too I bet.
