Morelia/Linares is just two rounds ahead, but so much has happened already. Two decisive games today: Aronian defeated Anand with Black in a Marshall and Ivanchuk beat Leko in a rare line of the Ruy Lopez. Topalov and Radjabov seemed to be blundering a pawn one after another, and then drew their Berlin Wall, just Shirov-Carlsen in a Kan Sicilian.

Round 2

Viswanatan Anand - Levon Aronian 0-1 Vassily Ivanchuk - Peter Leko 1-0 Teimour Radjabov - Veselin Topalov - ½-½ Alexei Shirov - Magnus Carlsen ½-½


The game of the day was Anand-Aronian, in which the Armian got a very strong attack after sacrificing a second pawn in the Marshall. It looked like Anand blundered terribly on move 30, as can be read everywhere, but in reality his position was already hopeless. Here are the games with comments again:
