    Norway Chess 2017

    Just starting a thread in case something more exciting happens down the track and so that anyone hiding under a rock knows a super-tournament is on ... all the big guns are there; only one win on day 1, Nakamura over Giri.

    Carlsen won the seeding blitz by two points.

    Amazing stuff in round 4 including Aronian's brilliancy against Carlsen and also a great stalemate trick by Karjakin against So.

    Nakamura and Aronian co-leading on 4/6 with three to go. No-one else has more than 3.

    Kramnik is having great time watching his opponents over-press....

    The tailenders (some mugs called Carlsen and Vachier-Lagrave) won in round 8 so now Karjakin is last. In the final round, Aronian is white against So with a half point lead over Nakamura who has black against Kramnik.

    Magnus had a great win
    Playing Anand, he has the chance to send Vishy down the order, and finish even

    Congrats to Levon Aronian for outright first with 6/9, a point clear of Kramnik and Nakamura. Aronian drew his last game with So, which went down to just Kings on the board. They were the only undefeated players (So drew every game!). Naka, a half-point behind, lost a sharp game to Caruana, while Kramnik beat Giri in just 20 moves to join him:

    This great win by Aronian follows his convincing undefeated win of the GRENKE Chess Classic in April with 5.5/7, 1.5 points clear of Carlsen and Caruana.

    Great to see Aronian record such a triumph. I haven't actually posted his win against Carlsen yet though I did link to it earlier on so here it is:

    Wait, I think I worked it out - maybe she didn't play in Norway at all. She just got a WIM norm at the Rilton Cup in Stockholm http://www.rilton.se/
