  fabelhaft: After 18 rounds Firouzja was in third place only 1.5 behind Carlsen and on the way to medal again, when he messed up a winning position against Carlsen and even lost in the end after the famous incident with the dropped piece.

After that he maybe lost some concentration and only got 0.5/3 in the last rounds, and the third medal behind Carlsen and Nakamura, who were in a class of their own in the final standings, suprisingly went to the ”retired” Kramnik.

  fabelhaft: Karjakin finished 41st and won against Kramnik but in his remaining 9 games against players ranked top 63 he scored 2 draws and 7 losses.

  Diademas: Finally!
Nice to have you back <Annie K.>!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: You just wait till there's an intro and edited standings table. For example Grischuk had 14 points according to

Then it'll be even better ;)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Fedoseev and Matlakov should have 13.5. Anyone keen to make an effort to check and fix this?

Or should I hack the standings table ;)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: <Tab> as I recall there were a bunch of stubs (0 move games) rejected from this event. You are welcome to edit the standings, and an intro would be great too. ;)
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Coming up! :) It will take some days though, it's quite time-consuming.
Jan-08-20  tonsillolith: Holy crap, Kramnik finished third in this blitz event saturated with youngsters, even after spending some time congealing in retirement? My respect for him only grows.

  mycroft2120: This is a fabulous result for Naka. I feel sorry for him that despite his best effort (take away that slip against Firouzja and he might have won the whole thing), Carlsen still gets the trophy.
Premium Chessgames Member
  chancho: Naka can't catch a break against Carlsen it seems. He'll either:get squashed in a tournament Carlsen is playing in, or: Caissa steps in and sticks the shank on Naka when he least can afford it. Star-Crossed.
