I will be watching the game i think. He has to be very smart though to be able to compete at such a high level. He makes good money as well and he is a very normal well adjusted guy.
60 Minutes did a very good profile on him a couple of years ago.
Carlsen recently said in an interview to The Guardian that he has only had brief relationships with girls as the world championship title is too important for him to focus on that.
That doesn't sound very well adjusted, although unfortunately it is "normal" these days

He’s number 1—instead of Magnus he should be called Maximus.
Carlsen is charismatic, and his chess rating is WAY above Anand. It should be a very interesting match, but I look for Magnus to win. Nothing against them, but it is also nice to not have Russians involved in this thing for a change.
