tata_logo blue.jpgThe 2013 Tata Steel Chess tournament took place from 12-27 January in Wijk aan Zee in the Netherlands.

Magnus Carlsen won the A Group competition with a fantastic score of 10/13, equalling Garry Kasparov's record score in the 1999 competition.

The tournament was a resounding success and we look forward to more great chess in Wijk aan Zee in 2014!

In the meantime, here are some photos from the closing ceremony in the De Moriaan Center.

    Magnus is the greatest player of all time.

    Magnus can brag anytime, after winning almost every elite tournament he joined in the last few years. World champion is just a title that means not so much right now, considering the decline of the current holder. To be world number one and holding on to it is a bigger achievement.

    Lol he didnt beat all of them though he only beat Karjakin, the game with Anand was draw and Aronian almost beat him but the game ended in a draw.

    Magnus can brag when he's WC, but not before.

    Although he will probably crush Anand...

    7th picture body language:

    Levon: " Haha Vishy you might have beaten me but I got a better score than you anyways!!"

    Karjakin: "O damn my mom has entered the hall, I promised her that I will win this thing easily"..

    Vishy: "Oh you just laugh of me Lev, but I'm still the world champion! haha!!"

    Magnus: "Lmao look at those 3 over there, I beat all of em AGAIN :D"

    I'm open for corrections, after all I'm no psychologist. :)
