Logo NanjingThe third round of the Pearl Spring Super tournament was not the most exciting round ever played in a big chess event, to put it mildy. Three quick draws didn't change the standings where Aronian and Bu Xiangzhi are now leading with 2/3.

The 1st Pearl Spring Super GM Tournament takes place December 11- 21 in Nanjing, China. It's a six-player double round robin event with Veselin Topalov (BUL, 2791), Vassily Ivanchuk (UKR, 2786), Levon Aronian (ARM, 2757), Sergei Movsesian (SVK, 2732) Peter Svidler (RUS, 2727) and Bu Xiangzhi (CHN, 2714). Live games start daily at 15:00 local time which is early morning for Western countries (08:00 CET, 02:00 EST).

In Movsesian-Aronian, which started as an interesting fight, the tactical slugfest led to a completely equal position, something the other players needed less violence for to reach today. The Chinese organisers will have to get used to the fact that such rounds are also part of top level chess... Here are the games:
