Morelia R5: Aronian beats Anand, Carlsen beats Topalov

2/23/2007 – A day of shocks. Both the top seeds lost, Anand in a tense struggle against Aronian, and Topalov with a sensational resignation in a position that must be a draw. In fact Carlsen shows the horrified former world champion the defence immediately after he had resigned. Now the 16-year-old Norwegian once again leads the field. Express report.
