Joel Benjamin recaps the Finals of the 3rd FIDE GP

The FIDE Grand Prix series of tournaments are over.
The third one just finished in Berlin, Germany, and the two finalists, Wesley So and Hikaru Nakamura, had to play an extra day after the first two classical games of their match couldn't decide the winner. The second classical game even raised a wave of polemics over the socials! GM Benjamin talks about this particular fact in the video.
But today it was an exciting day, with games keeping the watchers nailed to their chairs.
When it comes to Rapid Play, we all know that mistakes - and even blunders - are there ready to be made, and today's games didn't let us down.
It was a rollercoaster, and worth every minute of it.
Don't miss GM Joel's commentary on the finals!
