Carlsen wins London Chess Classic and takes Kasparov's record (9)

Magnus Carlsen won the London Chess Classic with a score of 18/24 (3 points for a win, +5 =3) and has raised his rating to 2861.4 beating Kasparov's 13 year old record by a huge margin of 10 points. This is his third triumph in four years. He was two points clear of last year's winner Vladimir Kramnik. Carlsen was guaranteed first place once Michael Adams drew with Kramnik who both also had fantastic events. Carlsen was involved in a fascinating game with World Champion Viswanathan Anand which also finished in a draw. The only decisive game of the day saw Hikaru Nakamura beat Luke McShane after the latter just blundered a piece in an equal position. Judit Polgar drew quickly with Levon Aronian.
