Last year's Candidates tournament in London was an amazing event to follow, with Carlsen and Kramnik leading after Round 13/14. Both lost in a dramatic final round, resulting in Carlsen winning on tiebreaks, going on to take the title of World Champion from Anand by a score of 6.5-3.5 in November.

Carlsen, Aronian, Kramnik, Svidler, Grischuk, Ivanchuk, Radjabov, Gelfand
