Magnus Carlsen about passion and playing for the title

In a blog post for his sponsor Simonson Vogt Wiig, Magnus Carlsen reiterated and explained his announcement that he might not play another World Championship match because he lost his passion for this form of competition over the years. But “passion must be the main driver. I have always liked to compete, but chess was for me mainly driven by passion for the game.” | Photo: Eric Rosen (FIDE)
