Wednesday was a rest day for the participants in the Sinquefield Cup, and before that was round 5. In the two previous rounds all the games were drawn, and the first four (of five) games to finish on Tuesday also finished peacefully. One game remained, between Veselin Topalov and Ding Liren, and although Topalov was winning earlier and still had some advantage, it seemed to be headed for a draw as well. But that's when it got interesting, as you can see for yourself.
Round 6 is today, with these pairings:
- So (3) - Topalov (3.5)
- Aronian (3) - Vachier-Lagrave (2)
- Giri (2) - Anand (3)
- Nakamura (2.5) - Caruana (2.5)
- Ding Liren (2) - Svidler (1.5)
