Sometimes Aronian is simply an amazing player. Today he played a brilliant game against the player who was leading the field in Morelia: Viswanathan Anand. Replay the game and enjoy. Full of moves you just don't expect. How beautiful the game of chess can be. Morozevich-Ivanchuk and Svidler-Leko were two boring draws; the former after a Berlin Defence and the latter after another Marshall Gambit. When I write this, Carlsen and Topalov are still playing.

Update in the morning: Another tragedy for Topalov. After blundering a piece against Ivanchuk, against Carlsen he resigned prematurely, in a position that's probaby a draw. Now Morelia really is the world upside down, compared to Corus...

Henrik LarsenCarlsen: "Regarding Magnus' performance so far I'm our of superlatives. (...) Magnus is back in the lead (alone) with 3.5 out of 5 and a TRP of 2906 ! What a turnaround compared to Corus." It sure is. And he's right to be proud:

Standings after round 5
  1. Carlsen                   3,5
2-3. Aronjan, Anand             3
4-6. Ivanchuk, Leko, Svidler   2,5
7-8. Morozevic, Topalov        1,5
