9th London Chess Classic 2017 (Games and Results)

9th London Chess Classic 2017

The 9th London Chess Classic took place 30th November to 11th December 2017. Players: Carlsen, Nakamura, Aronian, MVL, Wesley So, Karjakin, Caruana, Anand, Nepomniachtchi, Adams.

Fabiano Caruana won the event after a rapid, then blitz tie-break again Ian Nepomniachtchi. Magnus Carlsen won the whole Grand Chess Tour series after beating Levon Aronian from an almost busted position. Carlsen was scathing in his criticism of his own play in London but also clearly had a bad cold. Alongside were many other events, results and games below.
