    In the game which was finely crafted, the number one of the world Norwegian Magnus Carlsen achieved himself the position of highest-rated player in the history by defeating second seed Levon Aronian of Armenia.

    The former World Champion Russian Vladimir Kramnik ensured in the meanwhile that victory wouldnít come easy to Carlsen in merely two rounds. He also grinded US-based Hikaru Nakamura in the endgame that had queen and the pawns.

    Another game that concluded in a draw was a match between Gawain Jones of England and Judit Polgar of Hungary.

    With eight rounds still remaining in the 9-player tournament, Carlsen and Kramnik rushed forward with six points respectively. In first round, Carlsen thrashed McShane; while on the other hand, Kramnik achieved an advantage at Polgarís expense.

    Michael Adams of England as well as Nakamura shared third position with the three points each and Michael Adams had his extra match in hand when he bid adieu in second round only.

    Just like Adams, Anand too had a game in hand and now he shares fifth spot jointly in the rankings with Jones, McShane and Polgar. Aronian on the other hand, is at the lowest position in table because he has still not opened his account.
