I’ve been meaning to write about this for a while but I’ve been super busy so here it is!!! The tournament in Paris was very unpredictable. In the first game that took place on Sunday, Carlsen started off with a loss. On the other hand, Hikaru Nakamura was the dominant player in the first games which made me super happy 😀 I do like Carlsen also though.
The tournament was a combination of Blitz and rapid games. The participants were Wesley So, Fabiano Caruana, Magnus Carlsen, Alexander Grischuk, Mamedyarov Shakhriyar, Vachier-Lagrave, Bacrot Etienne, Caruana Fabiano, Topalov Veselin and Karjakin Sergey.
After losing 4 games, Magnus scored 3 points less but managed to pull himself together in time and defeated Wesley So in the final game.
The following were the final standings
