Round 2: Aronian-Anand



After a slightly disappointing start, Anand faced one of his most dangerous opponents, Levon Aronian. The Armenian grandmaster is one of a very few players who seem to have Anand's number, with a healthy winning ratio against him. Moreover, Levon never backs down from a fight. The result? Informator's game of the year, and the subject of a 12-page analysis in a recent book called "Modern Chess Classics".

The board, pre-soaked in gasoline for today's matchup...







Touch the d-pawn and I will eat you, Johnny Cash

After his emphatic victory, Anand found himself tied at the top with his elite rival, Vladimir Kramnik, who made borscht out of Morozevich:

Anand 1.5
Kramnik 1.5
Gelfand 1.0
Grischuk 1.0
Leko 1.0
Svidler 1.0
Aronian 0.5
Morozevich 0.5
