A very quiet round 6, yesterday in Morelia. Not much happened at all. On move 10 Leko deviated from what Topalov had played a round before with Black against Carlsen, and on move 15 a move repetition started that lasted quite long. Morozevich played a line in the English which isn't known as very dangerous, and Svidler knew this of course. Topalov could have turned it into a real game if he had put a bishop on c2 instead of a knight, and so only Anand-Ivanchuk can be called a real game. In timetrouble (Ivanchuk's, although Anand was playing fast too) Black missed a chance one move long, and after that too much was exchanged to leave something to play for.

You can't really blame the players, such a round, because so far we have seen high-level games with almost no exception. Today is the last round in Morelia and on March 2nd the tournament is continued in Linares.



By the way I just remembered I recently installed Google Maps, so I can show you in a quite neat way where Morelia is actually located!
