Another former FIDE world champion, GM Ponomariov, who is currently in 2nd place, will have White against GM Vallejo-Pons.
Will it be a quick draw on the top board to give Hikaru at least a share of 1st place or will we see a Kramnik scenario in Dortmund where he took care of business with his own victory?
Here are the final round matchups:
|GM||San Segundo Carrillo, Pablo||2570||–||GM||Karpov, Anatoly||2644|
|GM||Ponomariov, Ruslan||2727||–||GM||Vallejo Pons, Francisco||2693|
|GM||Granda, Julio||2647||–||GM||Svidler, Peter||2739|
|GM||Movsesian, Sergei||2716||–||GM||Vachier-Lagrave, Maxime||2703|
|GM||Kasimdzhanov, Rustam||2672||–||GM||Nakamura, Hikaru||2710|
