This is a caricature of the world’s number one chess player Magnus Carlsen. Great chess players have incredibly high IQs and mutant like spatial awareness. I saw where top players burn up to 6000 calories in tournaments – just from using their brain to crunch potential moves. It is hard to believe that a kid from Norway – a country with only 5 million people crushes the best players from countries like China with 1.3 billion.
