The Botvinnik Memorial in Moscow was a 5 day event commemorating the centenary of former World Chess Champion Mikhail Botvinnik's birth. Taking place 1st-5th September. At the heart on 2nd-3rd September was a two day rapid double rounder with the top 4 in the world. Viswanathan Anand dominated the Botvinnik Memorial with a score of 4.5/6. World number one Magnus Carlsen lost all his games on the second day and finished last with 1.5/6. Kramnik and Aronian tied for 2nd on 3/6. Viktorija Cmilyte won the women's event and there too the top seed finished last.

Viswanathan Anand wins the Botvinnik Memorial Rapid (Day 2)

Viswanathan Anand dominated the Botvinnik Memorial with a score of 4.5/6. World number one Magnus Carlsen lost all his games on the second day and finished last with 1.5/6. Kramnik and Aronian tied for 2nd on 3/6. I don't know if the players were asked to be more enterprising but the quality of play was, for me, quite low on day 2 with only Aronian's win against Kramnik in the final round appealing. Viktorija Cmilyte won the women's event and there too the top seed finished last.
