World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen (NOR) advanced to the Final of the Opera Euro Open, part of the Tour Chess Masters.
Carlsen did not have it easy against Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (FRA), who led him to the Armageddon game. In it, Carlsen decided to use the white pieces to have one more minute. Unlike his other games of the day, in this last game he made no mistakes and secured his pass to the final.
Wesley So (USA) defeated Teimour Radjabov (AZE) in the other Semi-Final and will play the Final against Carlsen over the next few days.
