In the fifth round Topalov lost again, this time to Carlsen (who played the Alekhine!). Leko had a good position against Anand but eventually lost it. Aronian-Shirov and Radjabov-Ivanchuk ended in a draw.

Two things make the start of Morelia/Linares special: there have been many Black victories (6 of the 20 games, to 5 White victories) and besides, (actually already after 4 rounds) everybody has already lost a game!

Topalov - Carlsen 0-1 Leko - Anand 0-1 0-1 Radjabov - Ivanchuk ?Ǭ?-?Ǭ? Aronian - Shirov ?Ǭ?-?Ǭ?
