All games in round 11 at Linares ended in draw, leaving Alexander Grischuk (pictured) still leading by a clear point on 7/11.  Vassily Ivanchuk is second on 6/11, followed by Carlsen, Anand and Aronian on 5.5/11.

Only Aronian came close to victory in the round, playing with the black pieces against Dominguez.  Aronian had the edge in this tactical encounter, but Dominguez managed to reach a drawish rook endgame a pawn down and ended the game with a pleasing stalemate tactic.
