Shamkir: Old and Young Coming Through at the Finish

"I am awaiting the breakthrough" - thus spoke Fabiano Caruana's trainer Vladimir Chuchelov about his charge, three days ago at the Shamkir tournament. At that moment, the Italian had not won a single game and had a minus score. And now, since the rest day, the wind of change has been blowing: Caruana has won two games in a row, yesterday against Kramnik and today against Wesley So.   

Is the reason explained by the fact that he preferred an active rest day, playing football and dancing at the discoteque, or would the breakthrough have come in any event? Maybe the grandmaster himself will answer this question at the end of the tournament. 

Vishy Anand also won again. In this round, he beat Michael Adams, moving onto "+2" and into clear second place. The Englishman failed to cope with the opening stage of the game. 

ANAND - ADAMS

15.Rxf5! Qxf5 16.Nxe4 Qg6 17.Rf1 Rfe8 18.Bxf6 Nxf6 19.Nxf6+ gxf6 20.e4, and the Indian had comfortable play, which he converted to victory. 

With two rounds to go, Anand is a point behind Carlsen, who beat Kramnik relatively easily.
