London: Udramatisk remis i toppmøtet

Remis mellom Carlsen og Aronian i åttende runde.
  GM Magnus Carlsen (t.v.) spilte remis i toppoppgjøret i
  8.runde av kandidatturneringen i London. Magnus spilte
  katalansk og fikk ikke til noen verdens ting. Dette er en
 åpning som ikke passer Magnus særlig godt og remisen
 var derfor ingen stor bombe. Magnus og Aronian beholder
 ledelsen med 5,5 poeng, men Kramnik følger kun ett poeng
 bak etter sin første seier i turneringen – mot Svidler.Partiene
 Radjabov-Gelfand og Ivanchuk-Grischuk endte 0-1.I dag
 kl.15 har Magnus svart mot Kramnik. Dette er trolig det
 vanskeligste partiet til Magnus i denne turneringen og remis
 vil være et meget godt resultat for nordmannen.De andre
 partiene i denne runden er Gelfand-Aronian, Svidler-Grischuk
 og Ivanchuk-Radjabov. Følg 9.runde live på hjemmesiden
 eller hos ChessBomb. Les også runderapport fra 8.runde hos
 TWIC og Chessbase.

London; Magnus drew Radjabov

Carlsen slet mot Radjabov i syvende runde.
   GM Magnus Carlsen had to fight to make a draw in
  the 7th round of the candidates tournament in London.
  Magnus was in trouble in this game and had to sacrifice
  the exchange to avoid a mating attack from his opponent
 GM Teimour Radjabov. Radjabov, who was in time trouble,
did not find the best path and settled for a draw through
repetition. Magnus is still leading with 5 points since his
main rival GM Levon Aronian had to settle for a draw with
white against GM Alexander Grischuk.Aronian shares the
lead with Magnus. Today the two leaders will meet in a game
where Carlsen has the advantage of the white pieces.
The games Gelfand-Kramnik and Ivanchuk-Svidler ended
draw. Gelfand had a remarkable opportunity to launch a
winning attack with 19.Ng5! but missed this opportunity.
Kramnik and Svidler have 3,5 points, Grischuk and Radjabov
3 while Ivanchuk and Gelfand are last in the standings with 2,5
points.The other games in the 8.round will be Kramnik-Svidler,
Radjabov-Gelfand and Grischuk-Ivanchuk.Follow live games
