FIDE Grand Prix Paris

The last tournament of the FIDE Grand Prix 2012-2013 took place in Paris, France, from September 22 to October 4. Caruana and Gelfand shared first.


It's tough for Caruana to accept this result. He shares first with Gelfand, but this wonderful result is not enough for him to qualify for the 2014 Candidates Tournament. Fabiano needed to win the 6th stage of the FIDE Grand Prix clear first, to grab the 170 points at stake and overtake Mamedyarov in second place in the overall GP standings. the 155 points he gained in Paris took him up to 380, 10 points short.
