Well, it had to happen eventually.  After lots of decisive games in the tournament so far, for the first timt today all games ended in draws.

Bareev and Leko drew in just 15 moves in a Slav defense and Rublevsky and Grischuk managed just three moves more before calling it a day in a Scotch Game.

Aronian met Shirov's 1.d4 with a Queen's Indian defense and after an interesting game a draw by repetition was reached in an unbalanced endgame where Shirov had a Queen, Knight and Pawn for Aronian's Rook and two Bishops.

Gelfand and Kamsky provided another fighting draw in an 4...a6 Slav.  All games are below!
