Berlin Candidates 10: Kramnik does it again

Vladimir Kramnik beat Levon Aronian for the 2nd time in Berlin, and once again it was a masterpiece, with Peter Svidler describing their Round 10 game as a candidate for Game of the Year. Shockingly, though, that was a battle between players in last place, while Mamedyarov-Caruana could almost have decided Magnus Carlsen’s next challenger. Fabi seemed to win the opening battle but missed something in the middlegame and needed to dig hard to secure the draw that kept him in the lead with four rounds to go.
