Ian Nepomniachtchi wins second consecutive Candidates Tournament

Ian Nepomniachtchi won the Candidates Tournament for a second time in a row on Sunday. The 31-year-old, much like in 2021, secured first place with a round to spare, and thus gained the right to challenge Magnus Carlsen in the next match for the World Championship title. Round 13 of the tournament saw Hikaru Nakamura beating Jan-Krzysztof Duda to grab clear second place. Nakamura is set to face Ding Liren, currently in third place, in a decisive final-round encounter on Monday. | Photo: FIDE / Stev Bonhage
