Hi all,

It´s sad to see a the tournament during hours and see so such boring drawings. The leader has the same number wins of other three players and only Anand and Topalov are "doing something " ( bad meaning ). Perhaps they have been punished due to take more risks during the game. Frankly speaking the organizers should do something for next London Chess. Tournaments whitout " so many stars " are more interesting to watch, have fun and learn.
