His peak rating is 2872, the highest in history. Carlsen was the 2009 World Blitz chess champion. On 26 April 2004, Carlsen became a grandmaster at the age of 13 years, 148 days, making him at that time the second youngest grandmaster in history, although he has since become the third youngest. On the November 2009 FIDE rating list, Carlsen had an Elo rating of 2801, becoming the fifth player to achieve a rating over 2800. Aged 18 years, 336 days at the time, he was by far the youngest to do so. On 1 January 2010, at the age of 19 years, 32 days, he became the youngest chess player in history to be ranked world No. 1, breaking the record held by Vladimir Kramnik. On the January 2013 FIDE rating list, Carlsen reached an Elo rating of 2861, thus surpassing Garry Kasparov's rating record of 2851 (set in July 1999). Based on several of his FIDE rankings, Carlsen qualified for the Candidates Tournament that took place in March--April 2013, which he won, thus earning the right to challenge World Champion Viswanathan Anand in the World Chess Championship 2013. Known for his attacking style as a teenager, Carlsen later developed into a more universal player. He does not focus on opening preparation as much as other top players, and plays a variety of openings, making it harder for opponents to prepare against him. His positional mastery and endgame prowess have drawn comparisons to those of former world champions Anatoly Karpov, José Capablanca and Vasily Smyslov. Beyond chess, Carlsen has modelled for G-Star Raw's Autumn/Winter 2010 advertising campaign. ►Support the channel by donating via PayPal: ►Play FREE online correspondence style chess at ►Playlists: ►Kingscrusher's Greatest Hit Videos! : ►Play realtime at ►Subscribe for my regular chess videos: ►Support the channel by donating via PayPal: Thumbnail Photo courtesy of Ray Morris-Hill ♚Play turn style chess at
