London: Magnus Carlsen won the FIDE Candidates’ Tournament in London on Monday after a bizarre finish of what has become a historic event for chess.

Both the Norwegian and the other leader, Vladimir Kramnik of Russia, unexpectedly lost their game in the final round, and so they remained tied for first place and Carlsen won on the second tie-break rule: higher number of wins.

This means that in the next title match, World Champion Viswanathan Anand will face Carlsen.

On the last day Levon Aronian of Armenia beat Teimour Radjabov of Azerbaijan while Boris Gelfand of Israel and Alexander Grischuk of Russia drew their game.
