Wow! Carlsen took the third place? That's great. I heard Carlsen is among the invited players to the FIDE World Championship in Libia. Does anyone know will he participate?

The question remains Did Carlsen agree to participate? We will see soon...
Chapter II of Magnus Carlsen's Biography "World Champion (at least one of them...)" :)

Carlsen will participate as a wildcard as far as I know. He was added to the participants list as a presidents nominee after several strong players turned down the offers to play.
