The rise of Poland’s next big thing continues. In 2020 the 23-year-old from Kracow beat Carlsen twice, ending the World Champion’s 125-game unbeaten streak. Last year Duda knocked Carlsen out on the way to a stunning triumph in the FIDE World Cup and then in December he took silver at the World Blitz Championship in December. Without a doubt, Duda is the most exciting player to come out of Poland for some time. A real threat who is ready to do serious damage on the Tour.
