Round 5, Candidates

The big news is that Carlsen has won again, this time leveling the match at 2.5 all. Actually, the ending was eerily similar to his other win, because his rook was on g7 menancing the black king in the corner, and he had a major pawn on f6 too. Funny.

The other major news is that Judit Polgar won a game against Bareev, putting her slightly back in the frame. She still needs another win in the last to save the match however, as does Shirov after he and Adams drew.
