What a day for Corus. The last round was filled with surprises, as 3 solo winners emerged from the pack.

In the A Group, 6 came into the round tied for the lead. 4 of those leaders drew, but Sergey Karjakin emerged victorious in his game with Dominguez, and after Carlsen fell to Wang Yue, he became champion.

In the B Group, the co-leaders Short and Kasmidzhanov both fell in their individual games, as did 3rd place Volokitin, but Fabiano Caruana won his last, crucial game to finish ahead of the pack.

In the C Group, Wesley So came into the day assured of a tie for first, and he calmly drew his game to emerge as the first prize winner. Some featured games are below.
