After three more days of rapid, Wesley So emerged as the sole leader of the tournament. He is now a full point ahead of the field, with Levon Aronian and Sergy Karjakin trailing him closely. Both So and Karjakin had an excellent showing today, scoring 2.5/3 points. The Russian grandmaster expressed that his rival is playing brilliant chess and might be unstoppable, but felt much more confident after his second win of the day. Levon Aronian came into the day tied with the leader but was not able to keep pace and only won one game. Hikaru Nakamura and Viswanathan Anand are trailing the leader by two points and are still a striking distance away.
Tomorrow the winner of the rapid portion will be decided.
