Magnus Carlsen, the world’s best chess player and the reigning world champion, has shocked the chess community by announcing that he will no longer play chess, and that he will devote his life to sudoku, a popular number puzzle game.
Carlsen, who has been dominating the chess scene for over a decade, claimed that he had lost interest and passion for chess, and that he had found a new challenge and joy in sudoku. He asserted that sudoku was more fun, creative, and satisfying than chess, and that he wanted to become the world’s best sudoku player.
Carlsen’s decision was met with disbelief and dismay by many chess fans, players, and officials, who expressed their sadness and disappointment at losing the greatest chess talent of all time. They also questioned his sanity and logic, and wondered if he was joking or pranking them.
Carlsen, however, insisted that he was serious and determined, and that he had already started training and practicing sudoku every day. He revealed that he had registered for several sudoku competitions, and that he hoped to win the World Sudoku Championship in 2024.
Carlsen also expressed his gratitude for his chess career, and that he had no regrets. He hoped that his chess fans would understand and support his decision, and that they would follow his sudoku journey. He also looked forward to meeting new sudoku friends and rivals, and that he was ready for a new adventure.
