Armenian GM Levon Aronian won the 11th Amber Tournament, after winning the 10th last year. Two draws against Veselin Topalov secured the half-point overall victory.
Equal second were Vishy Anand and Vladimir Kramnik, with Magnus Carlsen half a point behind. In the blindfold competition three players shared first place.
Magnus Carlsen, who had long dominated the competition, lost his last game and this allowed Levon Aronian and Vladimir Kramnik to catch up with him.
The rapid competition also ended in a three-way tie for first. This year the best rapid players were Vishy Anand, Levon Aronian and Gata Kamsky.
