Svidler Wins

Having avoided talking up Peter Svidler in the 2011 World Cup, for fear of sabotaging his chances of victory,, I am now happy to say he has defeated Alexander Grischuk 2.5-1.5 in the Final. Having won the first game in the 4 match series he drew the next 3 games to win by the odd point.
The third place playoff between Ivanchuk and Ponomariov ended with the same result, in Ivanchuk's favour, after their 4th game also ended in a draw.
