Rd. 9 Carlsen squashed Mamedov in 35 moves, while Anand drew Caruana. Magnus wins the event with 7-2, 1.5 points ahead of Vishi. So has a chance to tie for 2nd, but his position looks very drawish.

Correction: Carlsen only finished a point ahead of Anand, but a pretty overwhelming performance none the less. He might break his own record for the highest rating in chess history
