The Meltwater champions Chess Tour Finals took place 14th to 20th November 2022. The event was played on the Chess24 platform but half the players will be based at the Ferry Building in San Francisco, the city where Meltwater is based. Carlsen had already won the whole tour but there was still $210,000 to play for. The event was a mini-match round robin. Four rapid games each day against the same opponent, the result of the mini-match, win draw or loss going into the table. Players: Magnus Carlsen, jan-krzysztof duda, Arjun Erigaisi, anish giri, Quang Liem Le, Shakhriyar mamedyarov, R Praggnanandhaa and wesley so. Carlsen dominated throughout with only Duda keeping pace in the early rounds before he fell away. Carlsen dropped just a point against Le Quang Liem when he was taken to an Armageddon tie-break which he won. Wesley So finished in second place, a quite remarkable recovery considering he lost to Carlsen and Le in the first two rounds. Le finished third and Duda fourth.
