A few days back I reported on the match at its halfway point, when Vassily Ivanchuk led Wei Yi 2-1, winning game three after a couple of draws. Games 4 and 5 were also drawn, and then Wei Yi, to his credit, tied the match by winning the final "regular" game of the match. To rapid play they went, and Ivanchuk showed his resilience by winning both of those games to secure overall match victory.

The classical finale and the two rapid games can be replayed here.
