There were two close decisions in the top two mid-summer tournaments. Whereas in Dortmund the number of games with Black gave Fabiano Caruana his first victory in an elite tournament, in Biel Wang Hao made best use of the three-point rule. If the classic scoring had applied, Magnus Carlsen would have repeated his success of the previous year, but the Chinese player came out ahead as a result of his greater number of wins. On the DVD Caruana, Kramnik, Giri, Ponomariov and Meier are some of the protagonists to have analysed one of their best games in classical format. The DVD's special is a selection of video analyses with the participants of the Biel Chess Festival (total running time, 1 hour 40 mins.).
