Levon Aronian wins GRENKE Chess Classic 2017

Levon Aronian ist the winner of the GRENKE Chess Classic with one round to go. The Armenian grandmaster won in the sixth round against Hou Yifan. Fabiano Caruana tried everything to win his game against Matthias Blübaum, to keep a minimal chance to tie with Aronian after seven rounds alive, but he only got a draw. The other games also ended in a draw. Georg Meier was very well prepared today against Maxime Vachier-Lagrave and deserved his draw with the black pieces. As expected, Arkadij Naiditsch and Magnus Carlsen played an eventful game, but none of the players had serious winning chances.
