    round 1

    Shirov 0-1 Anand
    Topalov 1-0 Aronian
    Carlsen draw Ivanchuk
    Leko 1-0 Radjabov

    Morelia games are on at 21:30 GMT which I think is 8:30 am our time.

    They start at 7:00am Australian time, I was watching the chess.fm coverage of round 1 today . Not worth getting up till 8:30am anyway as that's when the games really start. I hope carlsen wins though he's been doing well lately.

    I see that the Live Games scores on the official web site and those in ChessBase news differ. The web site shows the Shirov - Anand game finishing on move 25 while ChessBase news has the score going to move 30. Also, the site has Topalov - Aronian going to 37 moves while CBN has only 35 and the web site has Leko - Radjabov going to 37 moves and CBN only to 35. Odd?

    But CBN also has some good photos of the players etc.

    Round 2 results

    Anand - Aronian 0 - 1
    Radjabov - Topalov =
    Shirov - Carlsen =
    Ivanchuk - Leko ? (Chuky's clock shows "fh:agmin" - does that indicate a loss on time)

    I dont think he's quite up there.... yet

    And if Carlsen plays like he did in the last Super-GM tournament, I think he will win, even though getting started with 2 draws.

    It probably indicates a glitch, since Ivanchuk won.

    Very nice game from Aronian, with a new plan in the Marshall, illustrating the dangers of Black's continued pressure. See GM Dorian Rogozenko's analysis. I didn't think 13. g3 has much independent significance because Black could transpose into the main lines by 13... Qd7 then Qh3, but Aronian's use of his QR to control the e-file is noteworthy.

    Yes, it would seem so. They now also have the full score of the other game.

    Here are the results of round three:

    Round 3: Sunday, February 17th

    Magnus Carlsen - Vishy Anand 0 - 1

    Peter Leko - Alexei Shirov =

    Veselin Topalov - Vassily Ivanchuk 1 - 0

    Levon Aronian - Teimour Radjabov =
