Opening System for Black versus 1.e4 or 1.d4

Magnus has played the Norwegian Rat since 2010, but in recent years has scored 4 wins and 1 loss in World Championship Blitz Events, including wins versus Anand and Caruana!

In the last two years he began employing the Norwegian Rat in his 13 part Chess24.com Banter Blitz series while taunting his opponents “Can anyone equalize against the Rat?” While crushing GMs rated from 2500 to 3200 as well as non-masters, Magnus racked up a stunning 19 wins and 1 loss!
