The last round game against Anish Giri wasn't an easy one for Magnus Carlsen, who has become the winner in Group A already yesterday. "I was worried. I had a bit difficult position, but fortunately there were enough tricks at the end to save me. It became a little bit more difficult than I expected. I thought that since he had a very little development he shouldn't be able to play this way, but evidently I was wrong" Magnus said in his official video commentary after the game.


Where to move white queen? The best would probably be going on a3. In any case white's advantage is not as big as the computer evaluates it and exactly because of the reason mentioned by Carlsen.
29.Qa6? Bxb3! It would be fair to say that Magnus could beat on b3 already a move earlier.
30.Qxf6 Nexf6 31.axb3 Giri could play in a more ambitious way:
31.Nh3!, but perhaps, Anish decided to finish the competition exactly like this.
31...Rxb3 32.Rc2 Rb1+ 33.Ka2 R1b4 34.Ka1 Rb1+ 35.Ka2 R1b4 36.Ka1 1/2

Magnus Carlsen's official video commentary

Carlsen: "I'm extremely happy with the way things have gone here and it's pretty unusual that I feel that I've got the maximum out of every game; more or less. That's pretty great."
