Teimour Radjabov has been the victim of Magnus Carlsen's endgame grinding before, notably in the recent Candidates tournament, and the Azerbaijani once again succumbed to Carlsen's insistent pressure in what was objectively a drawn endgame.

The other decisive game of the day came when Lev Aronian defeated Jon Ludvig Hammer. The Norwegian #2 was already under pressure when he slipped up with 21...Rae8 and was soon lost.
