Duda and Karjakin qualify

The World Cup remains the top event that Magnus Carlsen never won. In the semifinal’s tie-break in Sochi he was eliminated by Jan-Krzysztof Duda, who already broke the world champion’s 125 unbeaten classical games streak last year. The 23-year old Pole faces Sergey Karjakin in the final, both having secured their ticket for the Candidates Tournament 2022.
