Linares Final Results

The tiebreakers shown in the above table give the Sonneborn-Berger tiebreak results. However, in Linares the first tiebreaker was the number of wins (which was also tied at 5 wins each), and the second tiebreaker was the number of black wins (Kasparov won 3 games with black while Topalov won 1 game with black). That made Kasparov the overall winner in this tournament.

Oh, yeah . . . I almost forgot . . . Leko is still a putz, drawing all 12 of his games. Also, FIDE "champion" Kasimdzhanov didn't win a single game.
