Video interview with Magnus CarlsenIn the last few days more videos have been uploaded to our show player: an interview with Luke McShane, a part of the press conference of Short vs Ni Hua and now also an interview with Magnus Carlsen, conducted yesterday after his draw against Adams.

In the brief interview Carlsen tells about his games in London and about working with Kasparov. Besides, he gives his comment to Boris Gelfand winning the World Cup.

Excellent interview with Malcom Pein. A marvelous tournament. One only wishes it could have had each combatant playing two games with each of the others.

I'm looking forward to Corus. When the average player is Dominguez or Shirov, that's a strong field.
