Surprising we don't have a thread already but here's the second rapid tiebreaker which was an interesting game

Mamedyarov wins but still a good result for MVL as he has 8 points from 1 event whereas the leaders have 10 from 2. (Nepomniachtchi has 9 from 1).

Shakh kept getting fantastic positions with Black pieces in every game.
