Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2013

Hi everyone, 

In an exciting finish to the Norway Chess Super Tournament 2013, Sergey Karjakin drew his last-round game with Veselin Topalov to win the tournament this Saturday. The Russian grandmaster was the only player to finish on 6/9. Magnus Carlsen drew his black game with Levon Aronian to finish shared second along with Hikaru Nakamura (who beat Jon Ludvig Hammer). Bringing back painful memories from the Wijk aan Zee event in January this year, Wang Hao defeated Vishy Anand in the last round. More updates to follow. 
Final Standings
1 Karjakin,S 6
2 Carlsen,M 5.5
3 Nakamura,H 5.5

5 Aronian,L 5
6 Anand,V 5
7 Wang Hao 4.5
8 Topalov,V 4

    Tremendous performance by Karjakin at the Norway GM Chess Tournament. Two funny jinx - Karjakin vs Carlsen (London Chess Classic) and Wang Hao vs Anand (Wijk aan Zee).
