The very strong 54th Reggio Emilia tournament with Vassily Ivanchuk, Alexander Morozevich (who replaced last year's champion Vugar Gashimov who now appears to be playing in San Sebastian), Hikaru Nakamura, Nikita Vitiugov, Anish Giri and Fabiano Caruana. Play starts 27th December 14:00 GMT. Final Round 6th January 2012 12pm GMT

Anish Giri wins Reggio Emilia after final round of surprises (10)

Anish Giri won the Category 20 54th Reggio Emilia super-tournament after a shock final round where his rivals Nakamura and Morozevich both lost. Giri took a quick draw in a level position against Fabiano Caruana who shared second. Vassily Ivanchuk lost four games in a row but ground down Hikara Nakamura (3rd loss in a row) in the final round. Alexander Morozevich made things very complicated against tail-ender Nikita Vitiugov and even had a chance to win but in the end it was too hard for him to find his way through and Vitiugov emerged with a big advantage which he converted. Final Standings: 1st Giri 16pts, 2nd-4th Morozevich, Nakamura and Caruana 15pts, 5th Ivanchuk 12pts, 6th Vitiugov 8pts.
