Not surprisingly, Carlsen managed to win his final game in London against Nigel Short to take clear first. The controversial scoring system, in which a win is awarded 3 points while a draw only 1, worked out well for Carlsen who had the most wins, but hurt Mcshane and Anand who both beat Carlsen but drew too many games. It’s also worth noting that one of the most exciting games in the tournament was Mcshane’s artful draw against Kramnik.
All other games in the final round were drawn. Below, find the Carlsen-Short game, which chessgames.com made the game of the day with the pun being “french toast.”
