World Cup: Shankland blunders, Gukesh enters world’s top 10

Magnus Carlsen, Fabiano Caruana, Ian Nepomniachtchi and Dommaraju Gukesh were the highest-rated players to start their participation at the FIDE World Cup with victories. Gukesh’s win prompted him to join the world’s top 10 in the live ratings list, while Praggnanandhaa and Wei Yi scored brilliant wins. In the women’s section, more than half the games ended decisively, as most favourites failed to get more than half points in the first confrontations of round 2. | Photo: FIDE / Anna Shtourman
