Aronian moves into lead

Four of the seven games in the Corus A group were decisive today!

As Black, World Champion Vishwanathan Anand defeated tournament leader and wunderkind Magnus Carlsen, while Levon Aronian won with White against the top Dutch player, Loek Van Wely. Also winning with Black: Teimour Radjabov and Pavel Elijanov. With two rounds to go Aronian moves into first place.

Carlsen still faces Radjabov and Kramnik. It is hard to imagine that he will catch Aronian, but today demonstrated that at least half of the field still has a chance to emerge on top.
