Magnus Carlsen and Levon Aronian both won their mini-matches 1.5-0.5 to retain the joint lead in the overall standings going into the first rest day. Carlsen defeated Anish Giri with black in their rapid game and drew tamely with white. Aronian had a slightly harder time of it against the out of form Vassily Ivanchuk with a lost position in the blindfold game but he came good in the rapid. World Champion Viswanathan Anand moved into contention with a 1.5-0.5 win against Alexander Grischuk. Hikaru Nakamura did well to beat Vugar Gashimov. The game of the day was probably Sergey Karjakin's defeat of Vladimir Kramnik in the blindfold. He also was three pawns down in the rapid yet somehow managed to draw in a very disappointing day for Kramnik. The first rest day is on Wednesday.
