Just like last year, Carlsen is chasing Anand. Then they were both on 5.5/9, now Magnus is half a point behind.

He won again today, against Shirov, who had defended very well for a long time before he made a terrible blunder. Ivanchuk won a good game with Black against Leko. Aronian-Anand was drawn quickly; the other draw Topalov-Radjabov was much more interesting.


Anand - Aronian ?Ǭ?-?Ǭ? Topalov - Radjabov ?Ǭ?-?Ǭ? Leko - Ivanchuk 0-1 Carlsen - Shirov 1-0
