In this round, Grandmaster (GM) Levon Aronian (Armenia) faced the reining World Champion, GM Magnus Carlsen (Norway), but he lost this match on the 52nd move.

As a result, Aronian, who plays first board for the three-time World Chess Olympiad champions and the former World Team Chess champions Armenia, shared the 4th and 5th places with GM Sergey Karjakin (Russia), with 5 points, apiece.

GM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (France), who amassed 6 points, was declared the 2017 Sinquefield Cup winner.
