|December 15, 2010|
Despite a rocky start, Magnus Carlsen repeated his victory last year at the London Chess Classic (December 6-15) . In only decisive game of the final round he defeated GM Nigel Short, who had a very tough tournament.
US #1 Hikaru Nakamura finished in the middle of the pack with Kramnik. See Hikaru's blog for his own thoughts on the event.
