Hi everyone,

Great games continue to be played at the Tal Chess Memorial 2012 in Moscow at the beautiful Pashkov House. In Round 3, Alexander Morozevich beat Alexander Grischuk. Levon Aronian decided to go for a risky line and went down fighting to Luke McShane. Three chess games - Carlsen-Caruana, Radjabov-Kramnik, and Nakamura-Tomashevsky - were drawn.
