UPDATE: With two rounds to go, there were 5 players tied for first. In the penultimate round, Fabiano Caruana from Italy pulled into sole lead with a win over former World Champion Vladmir Kramnik only to lose in the final round to world number two ranked Levon Aronian. This allowed Magnus Carlsen to win the tournament outright with a win in his final game. Magnus was the only player to go undefeated throughout the tournament.
