Top 10 Biographies

Magnus Carlsen: Arguably the best player of all time, Magnus Carlsen is a living legend. Often called the “Mozart of Chess”, he is famous for his solid endgame skills and irregular openings (matched only by Hikaru Nakamura). He became a grandmaster at the age 13 years, four months, and 27 days.

Magnus Carlsen’s most-played openings are the Ruy Lopez (with white) and the Sveshnikov Sicilian (with black).
