The Azeri grandmaster played solidly, holding equality until move 34, but then blundered terribly and resigned at once. Today was his 27th birthday.   

"I didn't know today was Rauf's birthday", - said Magnus in surprise, when told of this at the press conference. 

The winner did not say much, answering most questions with a laconic "What else can one say?". Carlsen was very satisfied with his play in Shamkir and expressed confidence that he will return, if invited next year. "All the conditions are excellent here - a great tournament hall, a comfortable hotel and no problems at all."
