Tata Steel 12: Caruana wins with a round to spare

Fabiano Caruana has won the 2020 Tata Steel Masters with a round to spare after beating Jan-Krzysztof Duda while Magnus Carlsen was held to a draw by Vladislav Artemiev. Fabiano's 1st ever victory in the top event in Wijk aan Zee, and his 1st tournament victory since the 2018 World Championship match, consisted of 6 wins and no losses. The world no. 2's live rating has climbed to 2837.8, heights no-one other than himself, Magnus and Garry Kasparov have ever reached. Meanwhile the Challengers still hangs in the balance after David Anton suffered a shock loss.
