Magnus Carlsen impressively won the 4th Bazna Kings Tournament in Romania by a clear two points.

In a hard fought final round, all games were won by the player with the black pieces!  Carlsen employed the Gruenfeld to win against Wang Yue and thereby secure an undefeated score of 7.5/10, and a TPR of over 2900 Elo!

Teimour Radjabov completed the 'double' over Boris Gelfand using his trademark King's Indian defence, and Ruslan Ponomariov ended on a high note with a quick win against Nisipeanu.
