Express report from Wijk aan Zee

Before we get to today...

After two rounds, it is Aronian and Carlsen who share the lead on 2/2. By his own admission, Aronian was fortunate to win yesterday, but today he took the point in fine style, with black against Gelfand. Some deep opening preparation, including the novelty 13...Nf5, produced a very double-edged position, in which Gelfand failed to find the correct path, fell into time-trouble, and was already lost when he blundered at move 29.

Carlsen took much longer to beat Eljanov, but after securing an advantage in the queenless middlegame, he ground down his opponent with relentless determination and technique.

The other games were all drawn, but only after interesting fights. Van Wely-Polgar saw the First Lady in desperate trouble in the late middlegame. Loek felt he should have won, but after 27...f4, he  missed his way somewhere and Black's counterplay became adequate for a draw.

Topalov-Ivanchuk was a balanced draw, whilst Anand failed to capitalise on what looked like a promising position against Mamedyarov. After the game, the latter suggested 22.h3 as White's best try for a serious advantage.

Kramnik and Radjabov repeated the King's Indian seen in their game at last year's Courus tournament. Kramnik felt that he was doing well when the queens came off, but he could not find anything convincing, nor did the post-mortem reveal anything. He reached an ending with an extra pawn, but with only 2 v 1 on the same side, and was not able to make further progress.

Finally, Leko-Adams provided the longest game of the day. The latter seemed to equalize quite efficiently, but eventually dropped a pawn to reach another ending with all pawns on one side. Leko tried for a long time to make progress, but finally had to accept the draw.
