Baku Finals TB: Karjakin Wins

Finals - Tiebreaks

Karjakin crowns himself as winner of the 2015 World Cup! The path to this success could not have been more difficult. Many times he was so close to elimination in this tournament, and many times in the final, that it almost looks like a miracle. However, through sheer perseverance, some luck and resourcefulness Karjakin finally did it!

Svidler started by putting pressure on Karjakin, but he misplayed his position, lost a pawn and ended up suffering. I believe the endgame was a draw, but these kind of positions are always tricky
