Carlsen’s earlier defeat in classical chess got here towards Shakhriyar Mamedyarov in July 2018.
“It needed to occur one day,” the Norwegian mentioned of the defeat. “However after all, it is very, very disappointing.”
“I am truly satisfied, clearly, I did not be expecting to win this recreation in any respect,” Duda advised chess24.
“I wasn’t more than pleased with my play so I believed shedding to Magnus is not anything horrible in any respect. That was once stress-free me, (considering) k, it isn’t a large deal bearing in mind the video games I performed previous on this event.”
Revenge got here all of a sudden for Carlsen. Within the 6th spherical, he confronted Duda once more and this time defeated his opponent in 26 strikes.
Norway Chess, which runs from October five to 16 within the town of Stavanger, is the primary elite-level in-person event since competitions moved on-line amid the coronavirus pandemic.
