Magnus Carlsen Bags 10th Title in 2020 After Winning Norway Tournament

World Champion Magnus Carlsen won the Altibox Norway GM Chess tournament 2020 title one round before the end, after taking down the 17-year-old Iranian prodigy Alireza Firouzja. Firouzja's nervousness due to time pressure led to a blunder in the simple pawn ending game. Reportedly, Carlsen marked his 10th major title win of the year, and won a cash prize of $63,000.
