Magnus Carlsen took control of the Magnus Carlsen Invitational after defeating Fabiano Caruana 3:1 with powerful wins in the first two games. The other Round 3 match was mired in controversy after 16-year-old star Alireza Firouzja lost connection in a good position in the first game. The regulations specified the game would resume quickly, but after a long delay it was eventually decided the game would be declared drawn. Alireza went on to lose the next 3 games, though he missed a great chance to level the match in Game 3.
