Grand Slam Chess Final Masters Bilbao Round 9


All games drawn, Topalov leads

  Round 9: Friday, 12th September 2008

Vassily Ivanchuk ½-½ Levon Aronian
Teimour Radjabov ½-½ Magnus Carlsen
Vishy Anand ½-½ Veselin Topalov











Both players shaking hands wishing all the best in this round.

Anand vs Topalov was a Caro-Kann, with unambitious play by the World Champion, who seemed satisfied with a draw-and-nothing-more.











Ivanchuk vs Aronian saw the Ukrainian achieve a winnable position and then spoil it to a draw in time trouble.

Radjabov vs Carlsen was a tough fight that ended in a 53-move draw.
