So, Giri and Tikkanen tie for first in Sigeman tournament

There was a three way tie between Wesley So (name first in the official site twitter feed, I don't know if the fact he had most wins was significant), Anish Giri and Hans Tikkanen on 3/5. The final round saw just one decisive game where Jonny Hector lost to So on the white side of a French where he carved open black's king and forced it up the board but was nevertheless always losing after sacrificing material to do so.
