The fifth round of the Wijk aan Zee Super-GM tournament finished in a draw Kamsky - Caruana.

Some of the complications which took place before the time control worked for Italian playing with Black, however, Caruana couldn't convert his advantage of the extra pawn, while Kamsky didn't lose chances for the successful defence. The game ended in Black Rook and Bishop against White Rook and Pawn endgame. Italian GM missed his chance to win rival's pawn heading to the classical endgame "a Rook and Bishop vs. Rook". Caruana didn't have time to recover as long as Kamsky's pawn has already gone too far stating an inevitable draw. 

After fifth round Aronian and Carlsen share and maintain lead.
