Happy 30th birthday to Fabiano Caruana!

Happy birthday to Fabiano Caruana! We wish him beautiful games on the chess board!

Caruana became a grandmaster at the age of 14 years, 11 months, and 20 days becoming the youngest grandmaster in the history of both Italy and the United States at the time. He won the Candidates Tournament 2018, becoming the first American challenger for the undisputed World Chess Championship since Bobby Fischer in 1972. Fabiano lost the match to Magnus Carlsen in the rapid tiebreaks after drawing all twelve of the classical games. In the recently concluded Candidates Tournament 2022, Caruana took fifth place with 6.5 points.

Fabiano Caruana today celebrates his 30th birthday playing the first board for the USA team in the 2022 Chess Olympiad. The USA team hits against Paraguay and Caruana will encounter GM Bachmann Axel. Round 2 board pairings (open section) / Team USA Round 2 LIVE – Chess Olympiad 2022
