Magnus Carlsen appeared on the prestigious news show “60 Minutes” which has run on CBS since 1968. Reporter Bob Simon profiled Carlsen in a segment that appeared Sunday February 19th 2012. You can now see this interview and much additional material. There is footage of Carlsen in Norway and playing at the London Chess Classic alongside the interview.
The 2011 London Chess Classic is now just a month away – and it just got a little bit stronger. At the top of the list, for the first time in the history of chess competition, there are four players rated 2800 or more. All are playing in London. So that’s not a bad place to be, from December 3-12.
