Fabiano Caruana is the 2018 Altibox Norway Chess Champion! He took the €75,000 first prize after beating Wesley So in the final round in a dramatic turnaround right after the time-control.
Altibox Norway Chess attracted 13 top ranked players to take part in the tournament in Stavanger, including retired chess-champion, Garry Kasparov as guest of honor.
The game of Caruna against Wesley So was decisive for the whole event. The winner would be champion, if they drew we’d have a 5-player blitz tournament to decide who would get the prize.
In the last round also, Vishy Anand won against Sergey Karjakin and Magnus Carlsen made a quick draw against Vachier-Lagrave.
So, Fabiano Caruana won the Altibox Norway Chess 2018, Magnus Carlsen took the second prize and Hikaru Nakamura became third. Congratulations!
