Magnus Carlsen and Vassily Ivanchuk drew their final round games against Hikaru Nakamura and Lev Aronian respectively to both finish on 15 points.
So blitz tie-breaks were needed and it was Magnus Carlsen who emerged the winner 1½-½ to deny Ivanchuk the victory that had looked all but inevitable a few rounds ago.
In the last regular time-control game to finish, Vishy Anand salvaged some dignity by beating Vallejo Pons to avoid last place.
The final standings:
|Vallejo Pons, Francisco||ESP||2716||10|
