Grand Chess Tour Paris Rapid and Blitz 2017

The Grand Chess Tour Paris leg took place 21st to 25th June 2017. 10 players: Carlsen, Nakamura, Wesley So, MVL, Karjakin, Caruana, Grischuk, Mamedyarov, Topalov and Bacrot. Magnus Carlsen survived a shaky final day performance in the blitz where he lost three games in a row to win the event after a tie-break. Carlsen beat So in the final round of the blitz to catch Maxime Vachier-Lagrave and then won the tie-break match 1.5-0.5, he had much the best of the final game draw. Below is the final table of the event. Many of the players move on to Belgium for a second event with the same format. Carlsen has won every tie-break match he has contested since 2007
