Round nine

The Grenke Chess Classic is the first tournament for World Champion Magnus Carlsen since he won the Tata Steel Chess tournament in January and the start of a busy few months. He faced his future Challenger for the World Championship, Fabiano Caruana, fresh off his Berlin win, already in the first round.

Fabiano Caruana won his last round game against Nikita Vitiugov, and therefore secured clear first place.

The time control is 100 minutes for 40 moves, then 50 minutes for 20 moves and then 15 minutes to the end of the game, with a 30-second increment from move 1.
