They know how to fight in Pamplona. The players keep on going for the opponent's throat and constantly play for a win. In round 3 and 4 only one game ended in a draw! The game Morozevich-Shirov naturally was one of the games the audience was looking forward to, and for a change, I'm offering a lengthy analysis of that game, including the opening theoretical background.

With 'a bit of myself and some bits of Rybka'. Meanwhile, the fourth round has already been played as well. These games are added to the file.

The fifth round, today, will be interesting as well, because the two leaders face each other. Moro has White.
