Kramnik defeats Carlsen to join Shirov in the lead.

In a key day Vladimir Kramnik won a very sharp struggle against Magnus Carlsen to join Alexei Shirov in the lead after he drew against Vassily Ivanchuk. Carlsen had jokingly on facebook said that he was going to "crush Kramnik like a bug." Both players went at the struggle in an uncompromising way and on the run up to the first time control first a pawn sacrifice and then an exchange sacrifice set Carlsen problems he could not solve.

Magnus Carlsen and Vladimir Kramnik played a very sharp Open Catalan. Both players didn't back away from the struggle as white attacked on the kingside and black obtained a big pawn centre. Kramnik sacrificed a pawn and then the exchange, this may have left some chances for white but Carlsen's position proved to be very hard to play and his position fell apart on the run up to first time control. A great game that will repay proper study and a fine achievement from Kramnik who perhaps has gone favourite to win the event.

Final Position

Hikaru Nakamura against Sergey Karjakin was a sharp Nimzo Indian 4.Nf3. The game was very complicated and then suddenly on the run up to the first time control it became very difficult for Nakamura and his position fell apart. It's not clear to me where he went wrong.

Sergei Tiviakov against Viswanathan Anand was a Sicilian Alapin. If Anand is to achieve anything in this tournament he needs to beat the three tail-enders that most of the players at the top of the standings have. Today he had black against the very solid Tiviakov and although he obtained some advantage it didn't prove enough for his first decisive result.

Loek Van Wely against Peter Leko was an English Symmetrical where Van Wely gradually obtained the upper hand which he took into the endgame.

Jan Smeets against Fabiano Caruana was a Sicilian Paulsen. Smeets finally achieved a decisive advantage in what must have been a long event for him.
