    After six rounds of blitz, So's lead is down to 0.5 points ahead of Carlsen, who is three points clear of Nak and Nep.

    Magnus clearly not at his best for this, in many of his games he scored when he shouldn't have. Still good enough for =1st though. He seemed quite irritated in the post game interview at having to share. In the last round, he had taken an early draw to put him a point clear of So, who had black. So caught up though. The interview was very entertaining in light of Magnus' take on the "Bongcloud" opening, and a few interesting ideas. The Bongcloud had been played by Naka in the final round, who was assured 3rd place regardless of win/lose/draw. (He won though).

    interview from around 3:57

    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.
