Magnus Carlsen is considered by many to be the world’s best chess player. But you’d think that it would take him at least more than a 79 seconds to beat Bill Gates at chess. Well, if you did, you thought wrong.
The 23 year-old Carlsen achieved the level of grandmaster when he was just 13-years-old, which is probably why Gates made the disclaimer that the match had “a predetermined outcome.”
“Wow, that was fast,” Gates said after Carlsen beat him in just nine moves, adding that the only time he feels intellectually inadequate is “when I play chess with him.”
