Carlsen continues to reach the stars

Carlsen continues to reach the stars

The young 15 year old phenom won again today! This time, he defeated super GM Morozevich. His rating is about 2700 now. I think he is going to give Aronian a run for his money in their upcoming match. Talent + Proper Training = Success! He is tied for first with another former child prodigy Teimour Radjabov.

After 2 rounds, here are the standings:

1-2 2.0 GM Magnus Carlsen (Norway, 2675), GM Teimour Radjabov (Azerbaijan, 2717)
3 1.0 GM Alexander Morozevich (Russia, 2731)
4-5 0.5 GM Lazaro Bruzon (Cuba, 2667), GM Andrei Volokitin (Ukraine, 2662)
6 0.0 GM Yannick Pelletier (Switzerland, 2583)

Here is the official website.
