Viswanathan Anand continued his winning ways on the second day of the elite rapid event of the Botvinnik Memorial, following up a draw with Vladimir Kramnik by defeating Levon Aronian and Magnus Carlsen. He wound up with an undefeated 4.5/6 score, a full point and a half more than Vladimir Kramnik and Levon Aronian. Kramnik beat Carlsen in round 5 while Aronian beat Carlsen in round 4; finally, Aronian beat Kramnik in the last round to catch him. As you'll have gathered, Carlsen "castled queenside"; that is, he lost all three of his games (0-0-0) and finished in last overall with just a point and a half.
The concurrent women's event was won by Viktoria Cmilyte, who lost her first game (on Friday) and the last game (on Saturday) but won all four intervening contests. Elina Danielan took second with 3.5, Tatiana Kosintseva third with 2.5 and Humpy Koneru was last with 2 points.
After those events finished, they played a round of tandem chess, with the following generally nationally-based teams: Anand & Koneru, Kramnik & Kosintseva, Aronian & Danielan and Carlsen & Cmilyte. Anand & Koneru had White (in all games, the women moved first for both sides) in their first two rounds and won with it against first Kramnik's team and then Aronian's before drawing with Black against Carlsen & Cmilyte. Aronian & Danielan won with White against Carlsen's team in round 1 and Kramnik's in round 3; finally, Kramnik & Kosintseva drew with White against Carlsen & Cmilyte in round 2.
You can watch all the proceedings here. The games in all three events were quite lively and interesting, and contrary to at least one opinion I've seen about the men's event, reasonably well played, too, and I hope to present one or two of the event games either on here or in one of my upcoming video shows.
