Carlsen beats the World

Magnus Carlsen beat The World, led by Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Hikaru Nakamura and Judit Polgar, in the G-Star RAW World Chess Challenge on Friday in New York. After reaching a positionally difficult position the World Team put up a stiff resistance but, in his aggressive but controlled style, Magnus emerged the winner in 44 moves and 2.5 hours. The G-Star RAW World Chess Challenge took place yesterday at the Penthouse of the Cooper Star Hotel in New York City, as part of G-Star’s global Fall/Winter advertising campaign. Carlsen played in a room with a physical chess set and a clock, and a butler entered the moves played by The World on the board.
