His nearest rival Grischuk only managed to collect 7 points and finished second place after drawing his last round games against another top seeded peter Svidler who finished a disspointing 9th place. Morozevich triumph is a well deserved victory because he beat both top seeded Grischuk and Svidler.

Morozevich is noted for employing unusual openings, Against the Queen's Gambit, for instance, he has often played the Chigorin Defence (1. d4 d5 2. c4 Nc6), and the Albin Countergambit (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e5); both systems are hardly ever seen at the top level. He is also well known for preferring complicated rather than clear positions.
