The Tal Memorial and World Blitz took place 4th-18th November 2010. The defeat of Mamedyarov cost him first place and indeed relegated him to 3rd place on tie-break. He lost to out of form Boris Gelfand. Levon Aronian and Sergey Karjakin also finished on 5.5/9 but had superior tie-breaks and shared first. This is yet to be 100% confirmed.
