Ian wrote an article about this tournament today - complete with a photo of Naka wearing vampire fangs! (which i cant find a link to). Here's (http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp?newsid=8587) the Chessbase wrap-up.


Hikaru was a happy winner, after coming last in the London Grand Prix a little while ago.

Interestingly, the tournament has strong resemblences to the previous year. Kramnik (the 2011 winner) and Naka both won all games as white and draws with black. Both tourneys had a strong woman player - Polgar and Hou - who both scored 2/6. Anish Giri played in both tourneys, scoring 3/6 in 2011 and 2.5 this year.

(I tried to show the crosstables - but chesschat won post them).

Good to see Nakamura bounce back after a horror event in London.
