GRENKE Chess 4: Vishy joins Magnus

Fabiano Caruana and Magnus Carlsen drew their first game since the London match in another Sveshnikov where Fabi seemed to win the opening battle only to narrowly escape defeat by the end. That was the only draw of the day, with Vishy Anand beating Paco Vallejo to join Magnus in the lead. Arkadij Naiditsch inflicted a 4th loss on Vincent Keymer with a brilliant attack, Peter Svidler blundered early and lost to Levon Aronian, while Maxime Vachier-Lagrave ground out an endgame win against Georg Meier.
