Aronian marches on! He obliterated Kramnik and now leads with Nakamura, a full point ahead of the others.

The others drew, worth noting is that the one who enjoyed it the most was Karjakin.

And last, I felt good to be human when my hunch turned out to be correct, in spite of the engine's suggestions!
