Carlsen Wins

Well that’s that. Magnificent Magnus Carlsen blew Fabiano Caruana away in the rapid play playoff games, winning the first 3 of 4 possible games.

With a time limit of 25 minutes each plus 10 seconds per move, Carlsen showed his class and superb ability to win convincingly against a world-class opponent.

Congratulations to Magnus, who wins the world championship for the 4th time. And congratulations to Fabiano who performed well throughout.
