Round six express

Report from Wijk aan Zee by Steve Giddins

Obviously, all today's events at Wijk aan Zee were overshadowed by the news from Reykjavik. In some ways, one almost felt that it would be better if play could be suspended for a day, but naturally, that is quite impractical, and the tournament had to content itself with observing a minute's silence before the start of the round.

Group A

Magnus Carlsen (who was not even two years old, when Fischer played his second match with Spassky!) took the sole lead, after convincingly beating Judit Polgar with what looks like a strong opening novelty. Topalov continued his comeback by beating Leko with black, while Kramnik ground down Aronian in 110 moves. The other games were drawn.

Group A standings

Magnus Carlsen now leads alone, with 4.5/6 and an incredible 2920 performance. He is followed by Kramnik and Radjabov, with the former having exchanged places with Levon Aronian by beating him in their individual game.

Full analysis of the key games will follow tomorrow...

Group B

Nigel Short might be thought to have offered his own small tribute to Bobby Fischer by unleashing the Evans Gambit for the second time in the tournament. Of course, we all remember the miniature Fischer-Celle, from My 60 Memorable Games. Actually, having been part of a breakfast discussion with Nigel, I have to say that the idea of playing the Evans again came up long before any of us had heard about Fischer's death. Sargissian defended somewhat better than Celle, of course, but was still lost after as few as 14 moves.

There was mixed news for the Dutch fans. Erwin L'Ami went down against Krasenkov, but Steelwagen moved to +2 at the expense of Spoelman, whilst Smeets scored a very important win with black against Harakrishna.

Group B standings

Group C

The big surprise of the day here was the defeat of Fabiano Caruana, at the hands of Irina Krush. The young Italian GM blundered when barely out of the opening, and Krush eventually converted the extra pawn:
