Most of the games are taken from Magnus’s recent career, including one from 2020 and eight from 2019.
His opponents are nearly all super-grandmasters, and they include former world champions Viswanathan Anand and Vladimir Kramnik, as well as Wesley So, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Alexander Grischuk, Levon Aronian, Boris Gelfand, and, naturally, Anish Giri. In the majority of these games, Magnus demonstrates his ability to outplay his opponents in the middlegame by simply making stronger moves and applying constant pressure that eventually forces the opponent to crack and play weaker moves.
In some games, however, this takes place in the endgame. A second book, Magnus Wins With Black , is forthcoming. With a foreword by Magnus Carlsen´s Chief Second and Coach Peter Heine Nielsen.
