73rd Tata Steel Chess Tournament – round 4

Aronian and Anand won quickly today against Nepomniaschy and Wang Hao respectively. Shirov has lost another game, this time to Vachier-Lagrave. Hopefully he will recover as it is difficult to see such a strong and brilliant player being last. Bad day for the ladies in C group today as they both lost.
