Against Adams he drew his match, against Karpov he won and against Kramnik he lost. This year Magnus Carlsen also proved too strong for Peter Leko in the annual eight-game rapid match in Miskolc, Hungary.

After four games it was 1?Ǭ?-2?Ǭ? for Carlsen and eventually the Norwegian won the match without losing a game. For Leko this match must leave him a feeling of major disappointment as he threw away many winning positions.
