PanARMENIAN.Net - Fabiano Caruana on the €75,000 first prize at the Altibox Norway Chess tournament after beating Wesley So and seeing almost all the others, including Armenian grandmaster Levon Aronian, draw their games.

Aronian ended up collecting 4 points to share the 5th-6th positions with So.
