World’s number 3 Levon Aronian picked up his second win in the event during the fourth round. That’s quite a comeback considering Aronian began the tournament with a loss in the first round. He beat Vladimir Kramnik in the second and drew with Viswanathan Anand in the third round. Aronian was all ready for Svidler’s Gruenfeld and played precisely to force Svidler to resign.
