Has it been revealed who helped Magnus Carlsen in preparing and during the World Chess Championship against Karjakin?


1 Answer 1


So far, following seconds have been revealed (NRK, ChessBase):

Another surprise is that GM Jon Ludvig Hammer was not part of Carlsen's team for this match, while he was for WCC 2013 and WCC 2014. Instead, he chose to do commentary work for VG and Chess.com.

  • GM Jan Gustafsson also (source: en.chessbase.com/post/… ). That RadioJan tweet was real. Yes he was also commentating for Chess24. Dec 9, 2016 at 14:39
  • Correct! Actually, I thought that the tweet might be a joke, so originally I didn't put Gustaffson in the list. I edited the post.
