Alexander Grischuk continues to lead the Tigran Petrosian Memorial, but he is not yet guaranteed clear first. Levon Aronian put Grischuk under pressure in a Gruenfeld (Aronian was White), but Grischuk played very well to draw. He is at 5/6 (a great score good for a 3011 TPR), but thanks to Vladimir Kramnik's attacking victory over tailender Alexander Morozevich it's not over. Kramnik has 4 points and the good news for him is that he gets Grischuk in the last round. His bad news is that he gets Black, so Grischuk's a very strong favorite to finish the event on top.
I've analyzed Kramnik's win over Morozevich here and provided the round's other three games (all drawn) as well. Also, Jeffrey Hall wrote in to mention a remarkable blunder in the round four game between Morozevich and Ernesto Inarkiev, so that's also included at the link above.
Last Round Pairings:
- Grischuk (5) - Kramnik (4)
- Inarkiev (2) - Aronian (3)
- Gelfand (3) - Leko (2.5)
- Morozevich (1.5) - Ding Liren (3)
