Round 2 with 2 decisive games. But I have the feeling Round 3 won't have 3.

Anand won a very good game against Mamedyarov, after the latter was forced to sac without adequate compensation.

Giri beat Gelfand with black, Gelfand's rustiness was obvious, he was spending masses of time and played weak moves. Is this the beginning of the Return of the Je... I mean Giri?

Kramnik played 1 e4 again and met his old love, the Petroff. With predictable results.
