After three rounds of the 2010 Tal Memorial, Lev Aronian is the sole leader thanks to wins against Vladimir Kramnik in round one, and Boris Gelfand in round three.
Gelfand has had a topsy-turvy start, losing in the opener, then recovering to beat Shirov in round two, before his second loss today.
The only other decisive game in round two saw Nakamura beat Eljanov. Naka's strategy for this tournament of playing solidly with black and going for wins with white is working so far, but tomorrow he has white against Kramnik!
Two other wins in round three came from Vladimir Kramnik and Shakhriyar Mamedyarov. Kramnik's win against Eljanov gets him back to a level score and Shak's defeat of Shirov was the last game to end. Eljanov and Shirov have the unenviable record of having lost all their games so far.
