Which grandmaster won the Julius Baer Cup 2022?
Hans Niemann
Sergey Karjakin
Magnus Carlsen
Arjun Erigaisi

Correct Answer : Option (C) - Magnus Carlsen

GM Magnus Carlsen won the Julius Baer Generation Cup 2022 on Sunday(25th Sep 2022), needing just two games vs. GM Arjun Erigaisi.

Teenaged Indian Grandmaster Arjun Erigaisi went down against world no.1 Magnus Carlsen in the final of the Julius Baer Generation Cup online rapid chess tournament, losing the second match 0-2.
Having won the first match, the Norwegian had the advantage and he won the first two games of the second match to close out the finale early on Monday(26th Sep 2022).
Having won the first match, comprising four games, 2.5-0.5, Carlsen needed to only draw the second to take the top prize. He won two games of the second match and shut out Erigaisi.
The final was a two-match affair with each match consisting of four games. If the players had won a match each, a blitz tie-break would have been required to decide the winner.
Requiring to win the second match to have a chance to push the final to a tie-break, the 19-year old Indian player found himself in trouble against the world no.1 in red-hot form. Erigaisi resigned on move 48 and slipped into further trouble..
