San Luis is surely an unhappy hunting ground for the Hungarians. Polgar has so far scored only 3 miserable points and Leko is nowhere near his best. This morning, they split the point after 25 moves.
But what a win by Svidler against fellow Russian, Morozevich. The 4-time Russian champ moves ever closer to Topalov. Their game tomorrow will be an interesting one. I'm tipping a draw.
Adams played a spectacular rook sac but managed only a draw. Will the Englishman miraculously find some life in the tail-end rounds?
Tips for round 12.
Leko – Anand, .5-.5
Morozevich – Polgar, 1-0
Topalov – Svidler, .5-.5
Kasimdzhanov – Adams, 1-0
