Viswanathan Anand won the Champions Showdown, and won in impressive fashion. He was tied for first after the classical portion, won the Rapid portion outright, and finished just half a point behind Hikaru Nakamura in the blitz. He won overall with 15/24, and only lost one game the entire event, to Nakamura in their final blitz game, in 139 moves, on time in a drawn position. He even left quite a few points on the table, and in slightly better form might have won in a rout.
Hikaru Nakamura had a good event overall too, finishing a point back with 14 points. He finished half a point behind Anand in the classical, a point behind him in the rapid, and won the blitz to come in a very clear second place, three points ahead of Fabiano Caruana and six ahead of Veselin Topalov.
