Round 1 of the Bilbao Chess Masters Final will start momentarily, with the following pairings:

Caruana - Carlsen

Aronian - Karjakin

Anand - Vallejo

I'll have more to say about round 4 of London later today; in brief, the two decisive games were Grischuk beating Mamedyarov in a lively game and Gelfand beating Wang Hao when the latter blundered into mate in a rook ending. Gelfand is in clear first with 3/4, half a point ahead of Grischuk and Leko.
