This is definatley one of the coolest things about Magnus. I love it. His ability to remember chess stuff. I'm not sure, but I don't think it goes for anything. It's not like he remebers all things this easy. I might be wrong though... I think his father touched this subject in an interview..

What is amazing is how few people in the world realize how amazing this is. I would have liked to see some 1888 game or something but still, really amazing. I am a musician and have realized that a chess memory and a music memory must be the same part of the brain. If you name something I can start singing it, if you play it I can name it. It's just in there without thinking, I can see it on his face. Still amazing, 4 moves, cmon!

In fairness, he was being shown very iconic positions in all of those games. I'm a 42yo sub-1900 and even I recognised Chucky's missed mate in 1 and the KK87 position which were the only ones from games that I'd seen. I remember watching the Chucky one on a VHS video with the guys from the my university's chess club in the 90s, it is one of the biggest howlers in chess history, and the KK87 one was a game that basically changed the course of world championship history. I'd be surprised if anyone rated over 2700 couldn't get those. The Harry Potter one was genuinely very impressive though.

This proves my theory that chess is mostly memory, I always feel bad when I play moves based on memory and win games instead of thinking of what should be the best move. I was thinking that the best chess players must do the same but with much better memory. I guess this is why they study games but it really shouldn't be this way, it used to not be but I guess with recordings and notes of old games it's much easier to remember moves then it is to think about moves. This is what makes Magnus the best in blitz as he uses his memory advantage but in classical the matches are much closer as you have more time to remember what the moves should be or to think what the right move should be.

Well if you show the best known positions in all chess history, of course he remembers... give him a random game of some grandmaster tournament 10 years ago. And yes, of course it is his job. It is like asking a sports commentator if he recognizes the most famous moments of world championship history in his sport...

It does indeed seem fantastic. However, anyone with a normal undamaged brain is capable of instant recall just as Magnus's performance here. It has to do with the connections between the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. In Magnus's case, the photographic memory lies within a natural genetically enhanced frontal lobe that enables conscious direction of the vast reservoir of memory. Fact is, we all mentally absorb everything we've ever seen, heard, smelled or felt and it is duly recorded in our subconscious mind. As astonishing as this sounds, it is true. Our frontal lobes are like a valve that allows only a microscopic amount of our subconscious memory to be utilized by our conscious mind at any given moment. Think of it as a focus mechanism. And therein lies the secret of the savant mind. The simplest way to gain conscious control over the frontal lobe to enable total recall is
