In the quadrangular tournament Alexandra tied for silver with GM Viktor Kortchnoi (and beating him in the direct encounter) behind the winner Sergei Karjakin. Apart from that the city of Mexico beat the Guiness World Record of maximum number of games played in simuls on one day (14,065), and Anatoly Karpov also beat the Guiness World Record with the maximum number of autographed books (1,951), congratulations to all!
