Magnus Carlsen commentated live for 40 minutes with Jan Gustafsson during Day 2 of the Grand Chess Tour finals in London. The World Chess Champion went into detail on the recent match against Fabiano Caruana and shared his own views on how the World Championship system might be changed (spoiler alert: he’d increase the role of rapid chess!). He talked about his potential challengers, whether he’ll play a match at all, and even revealed that he’s soon going to make a debut as a Norwegian rap artist!
