It is the third time in just six months, 17-year-old Indian Hindu Grandmaster Praggnanandhaa Rameshbabu defeated world champion Magnus Carlsen, with the latest victory coming on Monday at the FTX Crypto Cup, the American finale of Champions Chess Tour, in Miami.

There was a sense of disbelief on the face of Magnus Carlsen when Praggnanandhaa defeated him in the blitz tiebreak after the score was tied 2-2 at the end of the regulation game.

The eventual winner of FTX Crypto Cup 2022, Carlsen talked to the media and said: “I was feeling terrible today; I didn’t get enough sleep, I was just not in good shape. I’m very happy and relieved to have won the tournament. Obviously I would have wished to have done better today, it’s really kind of embarrassing to lose the last three games but overall the emotions are obviously positive. I wish that I could have kept my level going right till the very end. I didn’t but nevertheless it’s a great result.”

Praggnanandhaa’s winning run came to an end at the hands of China’s Quang Liem Le in the fifth round. He suffered his second loss after he went down to Poland’s Jan-Krzystof Duda via the tie-break in the sixth round.
