    At move 26, Carlsen is black with an IQP and bad B. He will probably hold, but if he (or peak-Karpov) had White, they would torture their opponents for ages and likely grind out a win.

    and Kramnik was confidently heading towards yet another loss if not for Ding's (who is usually very solid) sudden slip!

    Kramnik is having a nightmare event and is last on 2.5/10 (-5).Magnus leads on 7 points.
    I would be surprised if Vladimir were not embarassed.He must be considering retirement (I would be).

    ^^ Does that explain why we don't see your name in top GM chess tournaments Met?

    Oh dear.

    Nice poker skills by Giri:

    "I realized it was a draw so it was very difficult for me to behave," said Giri. "On the one hand I wanted to think about the position, trying to figure out if there is still a chance without going 45.b6, on the other hand I realized there's probably none and I thought after 45.b6 he thinks he's lost, so I decided to give it a shot and with a stone cold face I went 45.b6 and then he extends his hand, OK I shake it and to be sure I ask: 'Did you resign?' and he says 'yes', OK."

    Anish Giri in Wijk aan Zee after Sam Shankland resigned a dead drawn endgame against him: "I would have accepted any offer. If he offers to resign, I accept, but if he offers a draw I would also accept!" Giri also immediately told the US GM what he had just done.

    And lady luck finally smiled at Kramnik after long and tense struggle. Van Forrest's Be8 was a disaster.

    Giri's opponent agreed to a draw in a much better (if not winning) ending! Endgame mysteries continue

    Can not see how Magnus can lose this position. White may be able to hold on due to a superstrong knight on d5...but re playing for win, I think only black can

    And it's a draw so Carlsen wins the tournament.
