Chess, Round 2, Game 4 results

Aronian and Shirov played another fascinating game yesterday. This is turning out to be the most exciting encounter since….Aronian-Carlsen! Leko is almost through after a draw against Bareev, while Kamsky-Gelfand was another draw. The surprise of the round was a win for Rublevsky over Grischuk. This levels the match and looks like producing an exciting finish.

Up today: Round 5, with Leko looking to finish his match, Kamsky pushing all out with White for a win, Grischuk looking to bounce back, and Shirov hoping to level against Aronian. Almost anything is possible and I’m looking forward to the games: http://globalchess.eu/main.php
