The consistency of a Nakamura victory in Titled Tuesday (he has nearly 30 tournament wins of all time) contrasted with the scarcity of 9.5 / 11 sufficient to win it without the tiebreaker (it usually takes the minus 10 points to win straight) made this specific winning unique. Yet it was almost true that neither regularity nor rarity saw the light of day.

Zhigalko, not Nakamura, held the only top spot heading into the final round, a position he has held since becoming the last perfect player in the seventh round. However, Zubov beat Zhigalko in the final round, with the first placing in the top four while leaving the second in third.

Nakamura took advantage of a victory over GM Mikhail Demidov to move up to first position, while Naroditsky finished second with a victory over FM Frederik Svane.

The top two players played notable matches before the last round, of course. One was their 10th round draw, while two more wins came against two other fan favorites.

Nakamura stood up to IM Minh Le in a seventh round final after finding 77 … Kxc3.

And Naroditsky beat GM Baadur Jobava in a tense sixth round bout.
