Magnus Carlsen wins the Arctic Securities Chess Stars 2010 (Final)

Magnus Carlsen won the Arctic Securities Chess Stars in Kristiansund. This rapid tournament was covered live on Norwegian Television. He beat World Chess Champion Viswanthan Anand 1.5-0.5 in the final. Anand hadn't played since he retained his title in Sofia in May and was impressive in the group stages winning all his games against Polgar and Hammer. However in the final he was ground down in the first game and made so little headway in the second on the white side of a Ruy Lopez he agreed a draw after just 27 moves. Jon Ludvig Hammer beat Judit Polgar 1.5-0.5 to win the Bronze final.
