Magnus Carlsen is known for the excellent moves that he plays on the board. But you must also know how important psychological elements are for these top players. Body language is one of the biggest giveaways of what is happening with the opponent.
In the 20th and penultimate round of World Blitz 2022, Magnus Carlsen was in a must-win situation against Aleksandr Shimanov. Because if he did not win this game, he would have other players catch him in the lead. But his opponent played a very drawish opening. While many would have been stressed out by this situation – a strong GM trying to play for a draw with the white pieces, Magnus Carlsen was unperturbed. His reason – my opponent was shaking a lot and I understood that he wasn’t very confident.
