Corus chess 08

The final round of this great festivsl is upon us. 17 year old Magnus Carlsen is playing fantastic chess, after losing a tough game to Anand in rd 11 he was able to come back and dish out Vladimir Kramnik's first defeat with the white pieces in a long time! Leaders Aronian and Carlson will be in for tough fights going into the final round (hopefully anyway chess players do have a tendancy to chicken out in the final rounds).
Group B action finally sees Nigel Short doing well in second place, young star Caruana seems to have wrapped up the C Group.
