kidthump : I can't remember what I had for dinner

ParklaneKarma : this is amazing. sometimes i even forgot to go to the bathroom and i shit myself. Im doing it right now. wow.

David Medina : I can do that, hold my beer!!!!

Kamelot19 : >that feel when you have the bad kind of autism instead of the good kind like magnus feels bad man

Ohthatsbull bill : Damn magnus.. damn...

ImaginaryHuman072889 : "the number of possible moves? infinite." i need a third hand to facepalm right now

crewskater06 : Illuminati confirmed

Ronald Brinkley : Surely the total possible number of moves is NOT infinite? With there being a finite number of pieces and areas to move to.

P Hampton : But did he *win* any of the games?

The truth is out there : Alehine played 32 games blindfolded!

1978ajax : What did he do with the people he won - are they his slaves now? - I thought that was illegal.

Андрей Нико : That's cool. But I am pretty sure that lots of TOP30-50 GMs can do it too.

Steve Meyer : Magnus is a Mother Fucking BEAST Yo!

Joseph Monderen : 320 chess pieces

aleem morris : I personally don't think Magnus Carlson is that good as well as all the other chess players in the world all he is doing is playing the computers game in his head, by putting the difficulty level the highest it can go and then studying all the counter chess notations. Anyone can do this it just takes time and good memory skills and understanding the 64 squares on the board. Also if you start out at as early as 2 years old studying day in and day out than of course buy the time your 21 it's very easy to remember the board and chess notations as well.

lilquinton94 : Magnus is the greatest of all times.

ShepherdOfMemories : Carlsen isn't modest :/ Pretty much why I dont like him or the way he plays.

Juan Jurado : Carlsen would easily beat me in 4-5 moves.

Mumbʟes005 : Well, if he has a particularly effective game he plays against less skilled opponents, he would just need to have that one game memorized. That would considerably cut down on what he actually needs to keep track of in his head, as his pieces on each board and his next planned move would be nearly identical. In that case, this could probably scale to 100 people if he had alternative moves memorized when the planned piece was missing. Just keep an A, B and C board in your head and assign each opponent into the appropriate category as the game deviates from the A game by losing a pivotal piece.

Sohan Marlon : Magnus in god mode

Sheriff K : He looks a lot like Paul Wesley.

TalkingToTheHand : joadn is impressed

Marc Rasmussen : Congratulations on the 10 people, Magnus! Hope you also won some of the games :)

James Rebew : Genius in action. To be able to play one game blindfold is marvelous, to be able to play 10 games blindfold simultaneously is stupendous. All the greats can do it. Paul Morphy, Bobby Fischer, Gary Kasparov, and now Magnus.

Jeremiah Wibberding : nice. that's all I can say.

Jack : can't do that with go

Santhosh Rarajan : god

Ztech : That's some crazy shit.

Pikabush : he probably has a mind palace or a photographic memory... or both

krnbundang93 : How does he know what the other person is playing? is it spoken out loud?

Jo Do : It transcends chess. What an insincere interviewer.

Joseph Monderen : 111 subscribers 11th like

PopTartNeko : Awesome! Guy should be a medieval age tactician.

aleem morris : Put plan and simple it all boils down to memory and how well you study, once they made the IBM deep blue super computer the game of chess as we know it would change forever. It has become watered down and over saturated like all the rest of popular sports, however I will send respect to whom I think is a true chess champion Gary Kasparov who was the first to play the super computer in 1996 and win. Magnus is the Lance Armstrong of chess plain and simple sorry.

William Baell : not trying to be racist but if magnus was asian/chinese he would probably have more of an edge !
