Grand Slam Master Final, Spain, 2012 ( Carlsen 再封王 )

Grand Slam Master Final, Spain, 2012

In an unexpected scenario on the last day, Magnus Carlsen won the 5th Masters Final in Bilbao.

The final round started with a 19-move draw between Fabiano Caruana and Paco Vallejo, who went for a famous move repetition in the Zaitsev Ruy Lopez. Carlsen drew his game with Levon Aronian to finish shared first. The Norwegian then won both games in a blitz playoff to retain his title in Bilbao.
