After all-draws in previous rounds,

So with Black has tempted Nakamura into a losing position at move 24, even though it looks like this was home-prep by Nakamura.


Who resigned. So-Nakamura 1-0

still playing

Caruana v Anand


which is drawish at move 28

Kramnik v Topalov


Looks good for Kramnik also at move 28

Aronian Adams


A one move slip would seem to give the game to Aronian, Adams at 33... played Ka8 instead of Ka7 after Adams had held the initiative the whole game. Currently at move 35, and likely Adams is searching for a forced draw sequence, I don't see one.


Lagrave-Giri was a draw

Yesterday Adams Nakamura and Topalov lost

There is a replay engine at

http://www.londonchessclassic.com/gct/gct_standings.htm

and I think you can do live games there too, but I watch through the Polgar site
