Four decisive games in Round 6; beautiful games all.
Levon Aronian took out the tournament leader Anish Giri in a very strongly played English.
Vladimir Kramnik played a strong White side of the Sicilian against Boris Gelfand. Poor Gelfand has managed only a half point so far. The following liquidating sequence by White was very convincing.
Peter Svidlier beat Chao Li in a Reti (Reversed Benoni-like) opening; a very tough game.
Ian Nepomniachtchi stepped into the tournament lead beating Shakhriyar Mamedyarov.
