Vassily Ivanchuk still leads the 6th Kings tournament in Bucharest but goodness knows how. Fabiano Caruana won the exchange and only had to find a short tactical sequence at move 61 (61. Kh2 Nxg4+ 62. Kh3 Nf6 63. Qf4) to end the game. His 61.Kg3 Qd4 62.Qf4 already made life problematic and 67.Rxd8? lost the remaining chances. Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu got an overwhelming position against Vassily Ivanchuk, it's hard to say what he missed but 30.Nxd5 was one winning opportunity of a few. Round 5 Monday 12th Nov 1:30pm GMT. Caruana-Ivanchuk and Topalov-Nisipeanu.
