  1. Magnus the greatest player ever in shorter time format, only because he is the one of the two greatest chess player in the world. it's completely unreal how he made it look easy πŸ˜†πŸ’― for 12 consecutive years with 15 World Championship titles. No one comes close to Magsy in Faster time format or longer time format, while people stick to their comfort zones, Magnus conquers.
