Round 13: Aronian wins 2nd FIDE Grand Prix in style

Levon Aronyan wins FIDE Grand PrixIn what can be considered an excellent last round, Levon Aronian became the glorious winner of the 2nd FIDE Grand Prix Tournament in Sochi, Russia. And he did it in style, defeating Alexander Grischuk in a fine positional game. In a crazy game Radjabov beat Karjakin to finish clear second, followed by Wang Yue and Kamsky who share third place.

PS: Someone needs to update the Wikipedia entry about Aronian, to include the latest victory.
