What Topalov had been afraid of has happened - Magnus Carlsen has beaten Maxime Vachier-Lagrave and closed on the leader of the Sinquefield Cup.

"Although it was not an ideal game from my viewpoint, because I committed a couple of inaccuracies, but even so, today's victory leaves a better impression than yesterday's", commented the world champion. Magnus said Maxime should have taken the pawn on a5 on move 25. "It should have been a draw. The black pieces and temporarily placed awkwardly, but I don't think I can exploit this". But once the pawn went to a6, the world champion gradually outplayed his opponent.

At this moment, on two points, we have Carlsen, Aronian and Giri. These three are on the heels of Veselin Topalov.
