Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hello everyone,

Going into the tenth round, Magnus Carlsen and Sergey Karjakin were tied for lead but they drew their game coming in joint first but allowing Carlsen to win the King’s Tournament in Medias, Romania. It was Carlsen who finished first on tie-break, and so the Norwegian retained his Kings’ title from last year. Vassily Ivanchuk finished with an excellent victory against Hikaru Nakamura while Teimour Radjabov and Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu ended their tournament with a draw. 

More details to follow. Congratulations to Grandmaster Magnus Carlsen for also regaining his No. 1 spot in the world in the live ratings.
