Skilling Open 3: Firouzja heartbreak as Carlsen wins prelims

Magnus Carlsen survived a blunder against Hikaru Nakamura in the first round of the day to win the Skilling
Open prelims, but the main drama was elsewhere. 17-year-old Alireza Firouzja
seemed to have wrapped up a quarterfinal spot with a stunning three wins in a
row, but losses in the last two rounds meant heartbreak. After leading for two
days, Anish Giri only scraped into the quarterfinals in 8th place and now faces
Carlsen, while world no. 2 Ding Liren, who went into the round in 2nd place, is
also out.
