This year's Linares tournament has been blessed with some very impressive and hard fought chess games, but with the players so evenly matched, the percentage of draws is stubbornly high.

Only one of the four clashes in round 8 ended with a decisive result, and it was Lev Aronian who made amends for his loss in the previous round, to beat Carlsen in a long endgame. 

So Alexander Grischuk still leads by a full point going into the next round.

 

1 Grischuk, Alexander   RUS   2733   
2 Ivanchuk, Vassily  UKR  2779  
3 Aronian, Levon  ARM  2750  
4 Carlsen, Magnus  NOR  2776 4
5 Anand, Viswanathan  IND  2791 4
6 Dominguez Perez, Leinier  CUB  2717  
7 Wang Yue  CHN  2739 3
8 Radjabov, Teimour  AZE  2761 3
