Before the last round of the men's Superfinal, which will start at 13:00 MSK Time, six participants share the lead with 4.5 points. This means that it's quite possible that the first place will be shared by two or more players. This is what the regulations suggest for such an outcome: 

"In the case of sharing the first place by two participants - two 15+10 games will be played. If the result will be 1-1 - the players should continue in Armageddon: 5 on 4 +3 seconds per move, starting from move 61. In case of a draw the winner would  be the one playing black.
In case of sharing the first place by three and more participants the round-robin tournament will be held - 15+10. If there will be two  leaders, they will play Armageddon, if there will be more than two players left - the round-robin with 5+2 time control will take place - it will determine the winner or two best players who will determine the strongest in Armageddon. A
ll the additional competitions start the hour after the last tournament game was played." 

Today there's only one encounter where the leaders are facing each other: Potkin - Alekseev. In other games the leaders are competing with the outsiders.
