After the peaceful sixth round, yesterday guerilla was back in Morelia. Especially Topalov-Morozevich was an fantastic fight, where full and half points went back and forth all the time. Eventually it was the Bulgarian, after starting with 1.e4, who won the game. Ivanchuk showed some fine technique with White against Aronian by slowly but surely grinding down the Armenian in a classical endgame with an isolated queen's pawn for Black. Against Anand, Leko had a small plus for quite a while but as soon as he decided to go for complications, it went downhill. A nice sequence of moves brought the Indian the full point. Only Svidler-Carlsen was quiet, in which Black equalized surprisingly easy in an Accelarated Dragon.
