MCCT Finals 4: It’s Carlsen-Nakamura in the final

Magnus Carlsen will play Hikaru Nakamura for the $140,000 Magnus Carlsen Chess Tour top prize after clinching a 3:1 victory over Ding Liren. A relieved Magnus said his Chinese opponent, “put up an unbelievable fight,” after Ding bounced back from losing the first game to mate Magnus in Game 2. The World Champion described what followed as “a total mess” and could easily have lost three games before the match was decided by a dramatic turnaround in the final blitz game.
