    What an amazing set of games! I shall be sure to tune in the remaining rounds of this tournament as it looks like all the players are going for it.

    I haven't really looked over the games in detail yet... but I note this is 2 wins in a row for Toppy vs. McArlsen!

    Yes, Topov is #2 in the live ratings now. I view this with the same scepticism as I did when Barry Bonds and Justin Gatlin became superhuman athletes past the age of thirty.

    That's quite an assertion!

    It might be too early to say, who knows, but it's good to see Aronian having a decent tourney for once.. been struggling for a little while.
