    Levon Aronian arrived in an aggressive mood for the blindfold game against Vladimir Kramnik. Having seen Carlsen’s loss he wanted to increase his lead, most probably believing that given his opponent’s poor form this was a good moment. Still, he called his pawn sacrifice, 11.e4, ‘maybe too provocative’. During the game Aronian believed it was insufficient and forced himself to play as accurately as possible to prove that he had chances. Despite his doubts he didn’t see a real improvement for Black’s play in the following moves, while at the same time he concluded that after 16.Bh6 White had a big advantage. And after the queen exchange he believed that Black was lost. ‘The game remained interesting, but I played accurately and brought home the bacon,’ To which he added with a deadpan expression: ‘Although I don’t eat bacon.’
