Round 13

Caruana beat Aronian in a very complicated game and takes the SOLO lead, half a point ahead of Karjakin, who share second with Mamedyarov, victorious today against Grischuk.

Caruana is the obvious favorite but with three tiebreaks, Mamedyarov, Karjakin, and Ding are still on the run!

Last round will be super-exciting.

8.0 GM Fabiano Caruana
7.5 GM Shakriyar Mamedyarov
    GM Sergey Karjakin
7.0 GM Liren Ding
6.5 GM Alexander Grischuk
6.0 GM Vladimir Kramnik
5.5 GM Wesley So
