Levon Aronian Wins Bilbao Chess Masters, Regains No. 2 Spot in Ratings

Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2013

Hello everyone,

Levon Aronian has won the 6th Bilbao Chess Master's Final and thereby regained his No. 2 spot on the ratings list which he lost just a few days back. In Round 5, Aronian beat Michael Adams to set himself up for the title. Adams was second, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave and Shakhriyar Mamedyarov tie for third. 
The event included Armenian Olympiad champion Levon Aronian, the Frenchman Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, the Azeri Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, and the Englishman Michael Adams. The tournament was held from October 7-12 on a double round-robin format along with the Sophia Rules and Bilbao Rules which prevent a player from agreeing to a draw without an arbiter's and panel's approval. Also, the scoring is three points for a win, one for a tie and none for a loss.
