The 4th Final Masters tournament took place in Sao Paulo Monday 26th September - 1st October before transferring to Bilbao 6th-11th October. Players: Magnus Carlsen, Viswanathan Anand, Levon Aronian, Hikaru Nakamura, Vassily Ivanchuk and Francisco Vallejo Pons. Double Round Robin with Sofia Rules and 3 points for a win. The time control of 90 minutes for 40 moves then 60 minutes and 10 seconds per move for the rest seems calculated to produce more decisive, if not necessarily better, games. Magnus Carlsen beat long time leader Vassily Ivanchuk in a blitz playoff to take the title after they tied for first.

Carlsen beats Ivanchuk in blitz playoff to take Bilbao title (10 and Playoff)

Magnus Carlsen dominated the Bilbao half of the 4th Final Masters and finished level with Vassily Ivanchuk who played so well in the first half. Carlsen would have won the event with a normal scoring system but won anyhow after defeating Ivanchuk in a blitz playoff. Earlier he had a relatively comfortable draw as black against Nakamura. Ivanchuk drew with Aronian in a quiet game. A motivated Viswanathan Anand beat Francisco Vallejo Pons. All but Vallejo move on to the Tal Memorial starting 16th November. Rd10 Final Standings: Carlsen, Ivanchuk 15pts, Nakamura, Aronian, Anand 12pts, Vallejo 10pts. Blitz play-off Carlsen 1.5-0.5 Ivanchuk.
