A historic teen Candidates winner signals a shift in the chess world where the Next Gen, unafraid of big names and flexible in their approach are here to rule.

Fabiano Caruana and Ian Nepomniachtchi sat, spent, and disconsolate. Neither had lost the game, but both had lost their chance. “I’m very, very sorry,” Nepomniachtchi said to his opponent.

Their drawn final-round game, which yo-yoed between opportunity and blunder, decided the fate of the Candidates tournament and ushered in a historic teen champion.
