So takes early lead !
American/Filipino star W.So has taken an early lead at the London Chess Classic, winning twice and drawing once. So is now half a point ahead of three players, Aronian,Kramnik and Caruana.
(Aronian and So before start of 3rd round. A draw)
Topalov and Adams occupy the cellar, each with half a point. (The good news is that they still have to play each other!).
Former World Champion V.Topalov has had a depressing year chess-wise
Giri continues his drawing way, while Nakamura finally scores a win (at Anand’s expense) and is in the race for first prize!
