437px-VishyAnand12

All three games were decisive yesterday! Caruana was stopped by Adams (Adams saw a wonderful 44…Ne5 trick which improved the position of the knight greatly), Anand made a novelty on move 20 and had a very good game after 22.Bg4 (another nice trick!). Meier got a very pleasant R and N endgame and kept Black under pressure until he decided to sac the exchange for a pawn. Then, white sacrificed another pawn to activate the rooks and won nicely.
