Magnus: “He’s just very resilient. I just found the whole match very difficult & unpleasant to play. At some points I thought that I was outplaying him & it started turning around… I never felt I had the energy… that I was cruising… a never-ending struggle!”

A staggering 4:3 final eventually went Magnus Carlsen’s way, but every single match went to at least 4 games and Hikaru Nakamura fell short by the smallest possible margin!

 

Magnus speaks for us all when he says, “I don’t know what to say!” LIVE now:

Happy Birthday to
TaniaSachdev
, who is hosting a little chess contest today!

A great knight outpost for Hikaru, but Magnus seems to be doing well with Black in the 1st game of the day:

Magnus grabs a pawn, but Hikaru will have serious compensation after 25.b3!

Today it’s Hikaru who plays Nxg7 in Game 1 – objectively it doesn’t work, but will Magnus prove it with little time on the clock?

Carlsen has been shaky in many of the matches in the final, partly because Nakamura has been playing extremely well. Is today the day where he will show who the boss is when it really matters?

A Sicilian in Game 2, so no temptation for Magnus to go for a quick draw now he’s taken the lead!

“Black is for choice” (Yasser)

Nakamura holds on to make a draw, but Magnus continues to lead 1.5:0.5, with two rapid games to go!

Will Hikaru Nakamura treat the next game, his final white in a rapid game for this Tour, as a must-win clash?

Hikaru is 9 minutes up on the clock in a great position – it seems the drama might not be over yet!

Leko: “I don’t know any argument in this position that is in Black’s favour”

Nakamura crashes through with a mating attack and this amazing fina
oatil is going down to the wire again!

“Holy smokes, we have a tied match!” – Yasser

Advantage Magnus as he has white in the last rapid game? Or will the momentum be all on Hikaru’s side now?

Still tense, but the odds are Game 4 is going to end in a draw – meaning at least two more games!

t had to happen… The Magnus Carlsen Chess Tour final is going to blitz… and perhaps Armageddon!
