  PhilFeeley: Only 4 decisive games out of 15? Seems a little uninspiring.

  Sokrates: The former star Morozevich in a relatively anonymous company - yet barely making over 50 %. And yes, 4/15 is uninspiring. Perhaps they should have served some tapas with a good Rioja before the games - that might have elevated the spirits.

  beenthere240: Only 1 win with white. The counterpunchers carried the day.
Nov-12-15  latvalatvian: The result of a chess game is not relevant. It's the process that counts.

It's not great is it? It's a bit better than Bilbao Masters (2015) which had 2 wins out of 12 games.

But draws weren't quick draws. There was a high average move number.

  offramp: <Fishy: I think its a lot better than a bit Bilbao was the worst tournament in my memory....4/15>>>>2/12>

I am old enough to remember this one: Petrosian Memorial (1999).

But it was enough for first place. It seems likely he was trying to win the event not all the games, if you know what I mean.
