Candidates tournament update

It seems hard to believe that people once complained that high level chess was infected by insipid draws. It’s certainly not the case in the Candidates tournament. Lots of exciting chess, very few quick draws – everyone here seems to be trying hard to win, and get the chance to take on Carlsen. The person currently with the best chance is the one who lost the crown to the Norwegian wunderkind – Anand leads the tournament with 6/9, a full point ahead of Aronian (5).

Chessbase and Chess.com both have good summaries of the 9th round, with games you can replay.
