Jul-13-19  joddon: magnus Carlsen is a mixture of Gligoric and Karpov…..both players in past history knew how to get an opening from an opening and finish the game with loaded fireworks, and blazing tactics....there was no other way he learned except from learning the skill in their games!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
