The Tal Chess Memorial Round 4 included fireworks by Magnus Carlsen against Alexander Grischuk. The latter held the No. 1 to a draw after a long-drawn battle. Fabiano Caruana beat Evgeny Tomashevsky. All other games were drawn as well. Vladimir Kramnik was a trifle upset about his draw. Alexander Morozevich and Teimour Radjabov continue to lead with three points each.
