Magnus Carlsen

World Champion Magnus Carlsen drew the final game of the 77th Tata Steel Masters to claim the first place with 9,0/13 points.

Carlsen had a slow start, making two draws before losing to Poland’s Radoslaw Wojtaszek.

Apparently the setback woke up the monster and Carlsen proceeded to record six consecutive victories. He routinely maintained the advantage until the end of the tournament.

Chinese superstar Wei Yi emerged winner of the Tata Steel Challengers after completing the event with 10,5/13 points, staying half a point ahead of the Czech champion David Navara.
