Daniel King's video analysis: Magnus Carlsen vs Anish Giri 7/23/2016 – Players in Bilbao got 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw, and 0 for a loss. Magnus Carlsen won the "Masters" with 17 points from 10 games, or, should you prefer the traditional 1-point-per-win-count, with 6.5/10. He won four games, lost one, and drew five. The game that secured Carlsen's tournament victory was his win against Anish Giri in round nine - the first time Carlsen could beat the Dutch in a game with classical time-control. Daniel King takes a closer look. Discuss

Terror strikes near home 7/22/2016 – In a world that seems to have gone mad, it was yet another act of terror that has almost left us numb after so many in succession. Gunmen had entered the Olympia mall in Munich, killing eight. The laws of probability said that even chess might someday become a casualty and today seemed like that day might have come as a massive chess event took place right there expecting over ten thousand children.

Bilbao, Rd. 9: Carlsen beats Giri and wins tournament 7/22/2016 – Before Bilbao 2016 Magnus Carlsen had never won a game with classical time-control against Anish Giri. But in round nine of the "Masters" in Bilbao he finally did. This win must have been particularly sweet because it helped Carlsen to win the tournament with one round to go. Hikaru Nakamura and Sergey Karjakin drew and so did Wei Yi and Wesley So. Before the last round Carlsen now has 16.0/9 and is full five points ahead of Nakamura. Discuss
