Wijk Aan Zee: Caruana Defeats Gelfand to Share Second Place with Radjabov and Carlsen


Caruana beat Gelfand and caught Carlsen and Radjabov, which means three of them lost Aronian a point and shared the second place with 8 points each.

Gelfand got worse position in Russian Game and couldn't help it during the long struggle. The World Title Challenger'с fans should hope he fred show better play against Anand than he did at last year'с Tal Memorial or even now in Wijk aan Zee.  

By the way, on the 30th move Italian missed a шанс to win an extra pawn. 


Instead of 30.Qf2 White could have played 30.Bxa7, and White can't harm the bishop because of the e8-checkmate .
