Carlsen catches Kramnik in first place, Aronian plays a draw

In 13th round of the FIDE World Chess Candidates’ Tournament Magnus Carlsen (Norway) caught Vladimir Kramnik (Russia) in first place.

Carlsen, who ground down Teimour Radjabov (Azerbaijan) in 89 moves, is now first on tie-break because of his higher number of wins.

Kramnik had a promising position against Boris Gelfand (Israel) but couldn’t get more than a draw.

Alexander Grischuk (Russia) and Levon Aronian (Armenia) drew as well, while Vassily Ivanchuk (Ukraine) lost yet another game on time against Peter Svidler (Russia).
