The annual Mainz Chess Classic has begun. The four-player rapid world championship is underway, and after some surprising results, Levon Aronian and Ian Nepomniachtchi (spelling?) share the lead with 2.5/3. World and defending Champion Viswanathan Anand is only on 1/3 after losing to both leaders. Arkadi Naiditsch has lost three games in a row and sits at the bottom of the table.
