by Shahid Ahmed - 11/06/2022

Magnus Carlsen won 10th Norway Chess 2022 convincingly. He scored 16.5/27 and finished a full point ahead of the field. Despite losing three Armageddon in this event, he still managed to win it. Shakhriyar Mamedyarov had a good opportunity to win the tournament, however he was denied glory by his fellow countryman Teimour Radjabov. The upcoming FIDE Candidates participant displayed his defensive skills and beat his opponent in the Armageddon to ensure Mamedyarov finishes second 15.5/27.

Mamedyarov - Radjabov: 1-1.5

Shakhriyar Mamedyarov had all the intentions to play for a win against Teimour Radjabov. It would have been their first decisive Classical game in over 12 years. The last decisive Classical game between them was in May 2010 at FIDE GP.

The above position is evident that Mamedyarov tried his very best to push for a win. However, it was not enough. There was no win for White. The game ended in a draw and Mamedyarov went on to lose the Armageddon which meant he secured second position.

Tari - Anand: 1-1.5

The Classical encounter in a 22-move draw via repetition. Aryan Tari had a good opportunity to win the endgame. He could not capitalize on his opportunity. Eventually he ran out of time in a theoretically drawn Philidor position in a Rook endgame with Anand being the defender and Tari having a lone central passed pawn.
