3 players share second
With a beautiful victory over Peter Svidler, Vishy Anand took the top spot at the current standings of the World Chess Championship 2007. Anand won in 39 moves, right before the first time control. At the same time his main opponent Vladimir Kramnik finished draw with Peter Leko, in a game where none of the players was looking for the victory.
The two surprises of the day came from the convincing wins of Grischuk and Gelfand. Thus, both climb up the table to share second place with Vladimir Kramnik, half a point behind Anand.
