(But where will he put it? It's an awfully big rock.)
Russian GM Nikita Vitiugov won the 11th Tradewise Gibraltar Festival after tying for first with 8/10 and then winning a four-man blitz(ish) playoff. Vitiugov, who never trailed the field for even one round, wound up tied with Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Nigel Short and Chanda Sandipan. It was an extremely strong field, as evidenced by some of the luminaries who finished with 7.5 points - Vassily "Quick Draw" Ivanchuk, Gata Kamsky, Michael Adams and David Navara - and some major figures were part of the tie at 7 points - Radoslaw Wojtaszek, Alexei Shirov and Chuky's partner in crime, Le Quang Liem.
Rather than go to tiebreaks, the organizers used a knockout playoff of 10' + 5" games. Vitiugov dispatched of Sandipan without much trouble. Sandipan tried to "Zuke" Vitiugov in game 1, and failed, losing, and in round 2 it seemed near-miraculous that Sandipan got off the hook with a draw. In the second match a mild upset occurred. Short won game 1 with Black in a Delayed Steinitz. Vachier-Lagrave had more space, but seemed to get a bit careless. Short broke open White's kingside, and eventually took advantage. In game 2 Vachier-Lagrave managed to keep the game interesting, but Short's bishops kept enough control for the game to end in a draw.
In game 1 of the final, Vitiugov, with White, won a pawn, and after 43 moves the players reached an ending where White had a queen, knight and four pawns against a queen, bishop and three pawns; all the pawns were on the kingside. Vitiugov took his sweet time, using lots of repetitions to accumulate precious seconds for thought, and finally converted his advantage after 104 moves. Short tried to grind out an endgame in the rematch, but the best he could do was to reach an opposite-colored bishop ending that was easily drawn.
The tournament coverage was very good, with GM Simon Williams and IM Irina Krush providing live commentary (still available) and other videos as well. This includes a number of "master classes", including one by Vassily Ivanchuk that may have been his "punishment" for the quick draw with Le Quang Liem:
