Bilbao Masters – Carlsen takes first after blitz tiebreak

Bilbao Masters – Carlsen takes first after blitz tiebreak
The signs were there, but nothing is written until it is over. The games were fairly sedate among the crosstable leaders with uneventful draws, though Anand came out swinging and avoided a last place finish by beating Vallejo. Top prize was decided by two blitz games, in which Carlsen concluded with a mating attack in the last game. Final report with pictures, video, and GM commentary.
