Levon Aronian secures 74th Tata Steel victory (13)

Levon Aronian decided that discretion was the better part of valour and took a very quick draw with white against Teimour Radjabov which secured victory in the 74th Tata Steel tournament for the "best result so far" in his career. Magnus Carlsen finished level with Radjabov after drawing an interesting game with Loek van Wely. They were joined by Fabiano Caruana who beat Boris Gelfand in a very drawish queen ending. Gata Kamsky was the only other winner piling further misery on Veselin Topalov who again misplayed a decent position. Tournament director Jeroen van den Berg confirmed that the 75th event will go ahead at the same time of year in 2013. The field of experience and ambitious youngsters produced exciting chess but Aronian with 7 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses was the dominant figure and clearly a deserved winner. Top seed Magnus Carlsen admitted that his play after round 7 "was a total mess". This will be the only elite chess tournament in the first half of the year unless there are surprise new events. It will be interesting to see what the players do with the time. A-Group Leading Final standings: 1st Aronian 9pts, 2nd-4th Carlsen, Radjabov, Caruana 8pts 5th-6th Ivanchuk, Nakamura 7.5pts. Pentala Harikrishna won the B-Group and Maxim Turov the C-Group both qualify for a group higher next year.
