A resurgent Alexander Morozevich plays Alexander Grischuk in the headline pairing of round 3. The fall in Morozevich's rating, one that he has started to reverse causes this early meeting. Sergey Karjakin too is the victim of a stars fall in rating and rise again too late when he meets Judit Polgar who really seems to be getting back to her best. Gata Kamsky against Ian Nepomniachtchi, Vassily Ivanchuk against Emil Sutuovsky (who has a 6-6 record, 6 losses and 6 draws) and Teimour Rajdabov against Etienne Bacrot (who will have to play far better than in round 2) are further eye catching fixtures in a round with many interesting pairings. See the full listing below.
