He Did the Impossible

Sergey Karjakin's brilliant 3rd playing day brought him the World Rapid Champion title 

In the last round of the World Rapid Chess Championship held in Astana, Kazakhstan, the draw was enough for Sergey Karjakin for winning the title. He was a full point ahead of his nearest chaser Magnus Carlsen. Russian GM has successfully fulfilled this task. Kurnosov avoided a triple-repetition on move 21, but eventually Karjakin managed to move to a simple calm endgame. 

Russian GM Sergey Karjakin became the official FIDE World Rapid Chess Champion. This looked almost impossible before the last playing day, as long as Magnus was brilliant during first and second playing days. However, Sergey's successful performance together with Ivanchuk's "present" (he defeated Carlsen) determined the new Champion. 

So, Karjakin became first, whilst the owners of other prize-winning places were determined in the encounter of the current and former leaders of the world ratings in classical chess.

TOPALOV - CARLSEN

Topalov was playing good till the moment when he missed a forced mate 41.Rg5+! with further Qxh5. The game finished in a draw and Carlsen kept silver. Topalov and Mamedyarov scored the same amount of points, but the result of the personal encounter determined Bulgarian to be the bronze winner. 

Another game of the last round:

IVANCHUK - SVIDLER

8.Ke2! - a novelty which brought Ukrainian a win. 

Round 15, results:
Ivanchuk - Svidler 1-0, Karjakin - Kurnosov 1/2, Mamedyarov - Gelfand 1-0, Radjabov - Kazhgaleyev 1-0, topalov - Carlsen 1/2, Bologan- Ismagambetov 1/2, Morozevich - Grischuk 1/2, Dreev - Tkachiev 1-0

Standings:
Karjakin - 11,5 out of 15
Carlsen - 10.5
Topalov & Mamedyarov - 9.5
Grischuk - 9
Gelfand - 8
Ivanchuk , Svidler and Radjabov - 7.5
