4th Norway Chess 2016 (Games and Results)

4th Norway Chess 2016

The Norway Chess tournament takes place 18th to 29th April 2016. Magnus Carlsen, Vladimir Kramnik, Anish Giri, Levon Aronian, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Veselin Topalov, Li Chao (who replaces Sergey Karjakin who withdrew after winning the Candidates), Pavel Eljanov, Pentala Harikrishna and Nils Grandelius play. Round 1 19th April.

Magnus Carlsen wins the Norway Chess tournament (9)

Magnus Carlsen won the Norway Chess tournament at his fourth attempt. Carlsen defeated Pavel Eljanov in 35 moves. Eljanov set up a Stonewall and got at least an equal position which he probably should have followed up with g5-g4. Instead playing on the Queenside turned the tide in Carlsen's favour and evetually he broke through and won.

The remaining games were drawn Topalov-Kramnik (60 moves), Li Chao-Giri (73 moves), Harikrisha-Aronian (39 moves) and Grandelius-Vachier-Lagrave 55 moves.

Final standings: Carlsen 6pts, Aronian 5.5pts, Vachier-Lagrave, Topalov, Kramnik 5pts, Li Chao, Harikrishna 4.5pts, Giri 4pts, Eljanov 3pts, Grandelius 2.5pts.
