Magnus Carlsen immárom hatodszor tornagyőztes, a rájátszásban nyert Anish Giri ellen. Wijk aan Zee-ben a norvég világbajnok Magnus Carlsen elsőségével fejeződött be a jubileumi, 80. Tata Steel Chess Masters. Carlsen utolsó partijában remizett az orosz Szergej Karjakinnal, riválisa, a holland Anish Giri a kínai Wei Yi-vel osztozott meg a ponton. A holtversenyt eldöntő rájátszásban Carlsen 1,5-0,5-re legyőzte Girit, a világelsőt hatodszor ünnepelték tornagyőztesként. Az orosz exvilágbajnok Vlagyimir Kramnyik győzelemmel beérte az azerbajdzsáni Sahriyar Mamedgyarovot, ők ketten a harmadik helyet osztják. A torna doyenje, a 48 éves indiai exvilágbajnok Viswanathan Anand a tavalyi győztes amerikai Wesley So-val holtversenyben ötödikként zárt, Karjakin a hetedik lett. A viadal legnagyobb meglepetése az amerikai Fabiano Caruana kudarca, négy partit is vesztett, hat helyezést rontott a világranglistán. A tornán Carlsen, Giri és Karjakin megőrizte veretlenségét, a kínai exvilágbajnoknő Hou Ji-fan nyolc vereséget szenvedett el. A holland tengerparti kisvárosban a hagyományokhoz híven emlékezetes sakkfesztivált szerveztek! Tiebreak PGN CHESSBASE Tiebreak
