Filipino chess grandmaster Wesley So on Valentine’s Day gifted himself with a win over World No. 1 Magnus Carlsen.
The inaugural and current World Fischer Random Chess Champion defeated Carlsen in the Opera Euro Rapid finals for his second Champions Chess Tour title.
Chess 24 reports that So won the first game of the day after a misjudged sacrifice, but Magnus had great chances to hit back in Games 3 and 4 if he’d trusted his intuition and sacrificed at the right moment.
Teimour Radjabov finished 3rd after a shocking blunder by Maxime Vachier-Lagrave cut the 3rd place match short.
So, who represented the United States in the tournament, hails from Bacoor, Cavite.
“I'd like to apologise to Magnus for ruining his Valentine's Day," he said after his victory.
