Ready to represent America after leaving his native Armenia, Aronian is back to his brilliant best. The famously laid back Armenian is seen as the joker in the pack of World Chess: a supremely-creative player who can beat up anyone on his day. That showed in the Goldmoney Asian Rapid when the 38-year-old dazzled from start to finish as he won his first Tour title. Aronian had already come close, losing in the final of the Airthings Masters. More wins will follow – perhaps even the overall Tour title.
