As Praggnanandhaa and Magnus Carlsen battled for the first spot, Vishwanathan Anand called this as the 'golden generation' of chess players in India.

Anand was proud that the 18-year-old, Praggnanandhaa defeated world #2 Hikaru Nakamura and #3 Fabiano Caruana.

He clinched the silver for India, standing second, against World No. 1 Magnus Carlsen in the FIDE World Cup final at Baku.

After Vishwanathan Anand, the chess master is the first Indian to compete in the final of the Chess World Cup.

Anand feels it's 'special' that there are so many Indian players with 2,700-plus Elo rating, who are all under the age of 20.

Fabiano Caruana took over the third place, after he defeated Nijat Abasov in the tiebreaks.

The final Top 4 of  the FIDE World Cup 2023 are: Magnus Carlsen - Winner (Norway).

R. Praggnanadhaa - Runner Up (India).

Nijat Abasov - Fourth Position(Azerbaijan).
