Yes, first day, Anand changes the script, beats Aronian. Good game?

5England  cc1422628553ChessHere Moderator2014-03-13 19:31:05
Aronian took 30 mins over 23..c6. The engine gave ...Rc8. He made moves 35-40 in 15 sec to make the 2hr cut off.

He started to lose it with 22...Knf6

very special-

11England  cc1422628553ChessHere Moderator2014-03-15 19:44:30
I watched this one today. It`s a draw but gets really interesting.

P. Svidler v V. Kramnik

White had the advantages but they never had engines to follow

12Canada  cc14226285672014-03-15 20:05:11
I like Svidler.He has all the tools.Hope he does well-

13Canada  dsuttlesChessHere Moderator2014-03-16 09:07:16
It\'s old news now, but ... Topalov got a draw with white against Aronian for his birthday yesterday.

Rest day today. I wonder what they are all doing? After 3 days:

1 Viswanathan Anand - 2.5 pts - 2.75 S-B
2 Peter Svidler - 2 pts - 2.5 pts S-B
2 Vladimir Kramnik - 2 pts - 2.5 S-B
4 Veselin Topalov - 1.5 pts - 2.25 S-B
4 Levon Aronian - 1.5 pts - 1.25 S-B
6 Dmitry Andreikin - 1 pts - 1.5 S-B
6 Sergey Karjakin - 1 pts - 1.5 S-B
8 Shakhriyar Mamedyarov - 0.5 pts - 0.75 S-B

14Canada  dsuttlesChessHere Moderator2014-03-16 11:59:05
Anand deserves star billing at this stage (2.5/3, black twice).

On his rest day plans:

\'Yesterday I tried going for a walk in the evening, but the snow was quite heavy, at least for poor Indian boys.\'

V.Kramnik v L.Aronian 1/2 1/2

33...Bxd5 was a blunder (exf1 = Q)
34.Rg1 would have kept a +3 advantage (stockfish engine) and left Aronian in
big touble.
