mod joey, this is a nice confidence builder for Wes :)

mukhang umaalagwa na si Fabi from the pack, 2 consecutive wins already, incidentally the only wins so far in the tourney :shock:

Magnus was crushing Wesley,despite playing the berlin,which has high probability of a draw.
Good thing wes defended well, and also magnus made some late mini blunders.
stockfish had it at + 1.56 in favor of carlsen at move 59, white was much better.
Wesley did not make any blunder per se, but magnus slowly tore down his berlin wall.

Aronian's queen versus So's knight, bishop, and rook. Wesley winning this match will surely boost his confidence.

Wesley’s final round game versus Anand was quite pleasing to follow.

Although Anand did not play this game as well as he might have, Wesley’s performance was consistently methodical. Probably no other master would have pressed home the slight positional advantage so forcefully and impressively.

Wesley’s tactical shot on 27...Nxc3 jolted all chess fans following the game live on ChessBomb. Everyone was expecting the more obvious 27...Qe4, as it was the best suggested move by chess engines. Needless to say, Wesley’s 27th move paved the way for the ex-world champion’s capitulation six moves later.

Congratulations and best wishes for the future! :)
