Group A

Magnus Carlsen played a magnificent game against Vladimir Kramnik, beating the former World Champion with the black pieces. Levon Aronian could not overcome Ivanchuk's defence and only drew, so that now, before the final round, Aronian and Carlsen are in the lead. Judit Polgar outplayed Michael Adams on the black side of a Petroff. And sensationally Veselin Topalov went down against Pavel Eljanov in a Modern Benoni.


Massive interest for the game Kramnik vs Carlsen

Kramnik,V (2799) - Carlsen,M (2733) [A30]
Corus A Wijk aan Zee NED (12), 26.01.2008
1.Nf3 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c5 4.g3 b6 5.Bg2 Bb7 6.0-0 Be7 7.d4 cxd4 8.Qxd4 d6 9.Rd1 a6 10.Ng5 Bxg2 11.Kxg2 Nc6 12.Qf4 0-0 13.Nce4 Ne8 14.b3 Ra7 15.Bb2 Rd7 16.Rac1 Nc7 17.Nf3 f5 18.Nc3 g5. Carlsen has played the Hedgehog and held his opponent thoughout a phase of manoeuvering. He now plays this interesting plan. 19.Qd2 g4 20.Ne1 Bg5 21.e3 Rff7 22.Kg1 Ne8 23.Ne2 Nf6 24.Nf4 Qe8 25.Qc3 Rg7 26.b4 Ne4 27.Qb3 Rge7 28.Qa4 Ne5

Kramnik may have had a slight edge, but the following pawn grab plan is based on a simple miscalcualtion, having missed that he could not take on b6 because of material loss. 29.Qxa6 Ra7 30.Qb5. Forced. After this the ending was very bad for White and Carlsen wrapped things up. 30...Qxb5 31.cxb5 Rxa2 32.Rc8+ Kf7 33.Nfd3 Bf6 34.Nxe5+ dxe5 35.Rc2 Rea7 36.Kg2 Ng5 37.Rd6 e4 38.Bxf6 Kxf6 39.Kf1 Ra1 40.Ke2 Rb1 41.Rd1 Rxb4 42.Ng2 Rxb5 43.Nf4 Rc5 44.Rb2 b5 45.Kf1 Rac7 46.Rbb1 Rb7 47.Rb4 Rc4 48.Rb2 b4 49.Rdb1 Nf3 50.Kg2 Rd7 51.h3 e5 52.Ne2 Rd2 53.hxg4 fxg4 54.Rxd2 Nxd2 55.Rb2 Nf3 56.Kf1 b3 57.Kg2 Rc2 0-1.


Magnus Carlsen after his win over Vladimir Kramnik

Full analysis by GM Mihail Marin to follow tomorrow...

Group A standings

Here are the pairings for the final round:

Group A: Round 13 - Sun. Jan. 27th
Vassily Ivanchuk - Loek van Wely  
Judit Polgar - Levon Aronian  
Veselin Topalov - Michael Adams  
Boris Gelfand - Pavel Eljanov  
Peter Leko - Shak. Mamedyarov  
Magnus Carlsen - Teimour Radjabov  
Vishy Anand - Vladimir Kramnik  

Carlsen has white against Radjabov, who would desperately like to move into the top bracket, but will probably be fairly cautious against the obviously in-form Norwegian. Aronian is Black against Judit Polgar, who is probably in an optimistic mood and will be seeking to improve her position on the final table. Naturally the big match is Anand vs Kramnik, where anything might happen. Anand might try to set the tone for the September World Championship match with a fine victory; Kramnik might strike out for once with the black pieces to climb to a less embarrassing position on the table; or the two may draw quickly, with none wishing to jeopardise anything in the last round of the event. Today there were at times 8,500 visitors simultaneously on the Playchess server. Tomorrow we expect to a new heavy load experiment and perhaps welcome ten thousand guests.

Group B

Movsesian put one hand on the trophy and the qualifying place for next year's A Group, by beating L'Ami decisively.

Movsesian,S (2677) - L'Ami,E (2581) [C50]
Corus B Wijk aan Zee NED (12), 26.01.2008

Business vs track suit: Ivan Cheparinov vs Hou Yifan was a 41-move draw

With Short and Bacrot drawing with one another, this leaves Movsesian a point clear, going into the final round, where he will face Humpy Koneru with Black.

Group B standings

Group C

Nijboer started the round a point behind Caruana, and made every effort to close the gap, but came up short.

Korchnoi could have shared first by beating Timman with black, but that never looked remotely likely.
