GIRI

One round left and Topalov’s defeat today against Giri leaves the tournament wide open! The final round will see Topalov up against a red-hot Anand.

SHORT

All Topalov needs is a draw to guarantee a victory in the tournament; a loss guarantees Anand a tournament victory! Giri and Nakamura will fight it out for 2nd place…should be exciting.
