Sinquefield Cup 2014 was Fabiano Caruan-ied

Just like last year (Sinquefield Cup 2013 was Magnus Carlsen-ed) , the Sinquefield 2014 was sensational. Highest rating tournament of modern chess history (well, nobody knows about Middle Earth chess right?), joined by six hyper high rating players. Apart from these excellent mutants brains player, the tournament is "disastrous" for all of them, except Fabiano Caruana. The other five men just couldn't do any better in saving the prestige of the tournament by letting Caruana threatening this event just like giving a simuls. All seven first round was a clean score, 7/7 is Caruana new nickname. Nevertheless to say, the tournament champion already decided as soon as perhaps before half of the needed duration.  Wonderful tournament again thanks to excellent live commentary of GM Yasser, Jennifer and Maurice.

1. Fabiano Caruana 8.5/10
