    Rd. 5: Carlsen beats Vachier-Lagrave and So lost to Anand, so Magnus is back on top by 0.5 point. Rest day tomorrow.

    The Anand game with So was fantastic.... Now we know that Anand is a real and true chess Champion, like Capa, Alekhine and Lasker.

    Viswanathan Anand vs Wesley So

    Here Anand played a TN 10.Ng5.



    I took great delight in pointing out that this exact same position was reached by two RHP players.

    The Anand - So Game.

    Rd. 8-So drew with Carlsen and Anand beat Mamedyarov, so Magnus is ahead of Vishi by half a point. Last round has Carlsen playing White against Mamedov and Vishi has Black vs. Caruana. Sources say that Anand is playing some of the best chess of his life in this event.

    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.

    Apparently it was Carlsen's 25th major tourney win...only 25 ahead of me

    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

    2900 here he comes? Can you imagine? He beats a 2700 player, gets what, 4 points for the win?
