Carlsen wins GRENKE Classic after armageddon tie-break (7 and Tie-break)

Magnus Carlsen won the 3rd GRENKE Classic after winning a final decisive tie-break game against Arkadij Naiditsch. They had exchanged wins in the rapid tie-break games, two draws in blitz before Carlsen had white and had to win the final game. Both players had winning chances earlier in the day during the final round 7 which would have given first place outright. Fabiano Caruana missed a chance to join them in a final tie-break when he missed a sharp chance against David Baramidze. Michael Adams defeated Viswanathan Anand after his grinding away in a rook ending was rewarded with a serious error.

Final Standings: Carlsen (1st after TB) and Naiditsch 4.5/7, Caruana, Adams 4pts, Bacrot, Aronian 3.5pts, Anand 2.5pts, Baramidze 1.5pts.

Next major tournaments Zurich 13th Feb and Tbilisi Grand Prix 14th Feb.
