Wei Yi beat Anish Giri when the latter blundered in an endgame with 31…g5 which left his bishop cut off and unable to stop white’s passed pawn.
Furthermore, it wasn’t yet payback time for Magnus Carlsen as he just drew his game against Hikaru Nakamura.
Lastly, the defending champion of the tournament, Wesley So, settled for another draw with Sergey Karjakin, and is thus now running last in the ranking (see table below).
