FIDE World Cup 7.3: Duda takes down Carlsen

Jan-Krzysztof Duda has qualified for the 2022 Candidates Tournament in spectacular style by beating Magnus Carlsen to reach the final of the FIDE World Cup. The victory was utterly deserved, with Duda yet to lose a game at the World Cup and never in real danger against Magnus, while the World Champion could have escaped but found himself under immense pressure in the second rapid game. Duda now plays fellow Candidate Sergey Karjakin, while Magnus faces a 3rd place match against Vladimir Fedoseev. Tan Zhongyi took 3rd in the women’s event after easily overcoming Anna Muzychuk.
