Hahaha! This Is Magnus Carlsen’s Newly Developed Opening And It’s Epic

Magnus Carlsen chooses the craziest possible opening during the recent Lichess Titled Arena. What is interesting his experienced opponents mostly failed to make use of it and fell victim to his attack.
On the 15th of December Lichess.org hosted the 9th Lichess Titled Arena! With this event the popular chess website also celebrated the 1 year anniversary of these Titled Arenas! 252 titled players from all over the world tried their luck in a bullet battle but in presence of the reigning world chess champion Magnus Carlsen all they could do was to fight for the second place! Magnus Carlsen who this time was playing under a nickname DrNykterstein came up with some crazy opening ideas. Here is a game where Carlsen is testeing his crazy weapon which I call “castling with a king and queen”! A perfect show for the spectators!
