    Everyone was moaning about the fact that Magnus was not in the recent WC final
    and there were too many draws.

    MC has drawn his first two games in the Tal Memorial 2012. 😉
    (he's warming up.)

    Magnus had a poor position against Moro (who had two tanks on the seventh, i dunno if
    Moro won, but he was sure lookin good)

    Round 4 just finished. 4 drawn games (Magnus included) and Fabiano pulled a win over Tomashevsky who was tied for first.
