  • I mean I understand that he easliy gets the positions right but the fact that he insta guessed after 2 moves is actually wow

  • People forget that it's much easier to remember things that you find them very interesting. However, it's amazing he remembered a Harry Potter game because, unlike the game in Queen's Gambit, it probably was not interesting...or maybe to him any chess in a film with actors is at least mildly interesting.

  • Magnus is a type of savant I think. It's very mild, but if you observe him long enough you can tell something is a bit off. Not nearly as bad as Ivanchuk though. Imagine if he applied this unbelievable talent to something actually useful, like medical science or technology.

(James 4:4) And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: (Acts 17:30)
