Eric Hansen, who streams as the main host of the ‘Chessbrah’ channel, couldn’t believe his eyes after securing a victory over world chess champion Magnus Carlsen.
Magnus is one of the biggest names in the history of chess. He’s dominated the scene for years, having become world champion in 2013.
There weren’t very high expectations set on Hansen going into the tournament, but he found himself beating Carlsen in Round 10 of the tournament, much to everyone’s surprise.
It wasn’t exactly an outplay: Carlsen appeared to misclick and make a bad move, which opened up the board for Hansen to take the win.
Aware of his blunder, Carlsen opted to resign instead of letting the game play out, giving an astonished Hansen the win.
