Final round on now. Radjabov is leading by half a point and doing rather well against Nepo whose kingside is a mess with doubled isolated e and g pawns. If Radjabov stays outright first he will jump ahead of Ding Liren in the GP.

Radjabov drew his last game but still won outright.

This reduces the players in contention for the two GP spots to five: Mamedyarov, Grischuk, Radjabov, Ding Liren, Vachier-Lagrave. The first two have finished with Mamedyarov slightly ahead. It is mathematically possible for both of them to be jumped by the others in the final Palma GP. To be in with a chance Vachier-Lagrave will need to come second or =1st-3rd while the others will each need at least =3rd-4th or =2nd-5th.
