    Finally a bad result for Magnus, finished below the middle of the pack, lost 5 or 6 games.

    Yeh he looked really out of sorts. Hair in a mess, it looked like he has spent the last month in bed. It's a bit worrying for his fans, as the Classical event starts 3 days after the Rapid/blitz, which is a ridiculously quick turn around considering how many rounds these guys have just played. I don't really see that it is very fair, as half the field will be exhausted, while the other half will be fresh as a daisy.
