London Chess Classic 2012 Round 6: Carlsen Beats Polgar; Anand Blunders Against Adams

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,
MIke Basman starts the game for Magnus Carlsen as Malcolm Pein put forth the microphone. 

The sixth round of the London Chess Classic 2012 would be remembered more for World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand's horrible blunder against Michael Adams instead of Magnus Carlsen's devastating win over Judit Polgar. The win takes Carlsen to a live rating of 2864. Meanwhile, Luke McShane beat Gawain Jones and Levon Aronian held Vladimir Kramnik to a draw.

Replay each of the games with Chess King:

As regards the standings, Magnus Carlsen leads with 16 points, followed by Vladimir Kramnik with 12 points. Bot have played six games. Michael Adams 10 points, Hikaru Nakamura eight points, Vishy Anand six points,  Levon Aronian five points, Luke McShane four points, have all played five games. Gawain Jones has two points in six games. Judit Polgar has one point in five games.
