4th Norway Chess 2016 (9)

Magnus Carlsen wins the Norway Chess tournament

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.
