Magnus Carlsen has won the Candidates tournament 2013 and will be the official challenger of reigning World Champion Viswanathan Anand.

Carlsen and Kramnik finished with equal points, but Carlsen was declared winner on tiebreak – more wins.

World Champion Viswanathan Anand wrote on Twitter: “Congratulations to Magnus! He always comes through. Vladimir made a huge impression with his play, but what can you do about this tiebreak?”
