In the protracted duel of the fourth round of Wijk aan Zee tournament, Aronian managed to take an upper hand on Gata Kamsky. This is Armenian GM's third victory besides one loss against Carlsen. Now they share the lead. 

Kamsky couldn't equalize the position in the opening (perhaps, he should have chosen 14...Qb4 instead of 14...h6 - that is the reason of White playing 14.a3 instead of Aronian's choice 14.e5) and was facing problems during the whole game. Aronian grabbed victory later in the endgame. 

"God bless America!" - tweeted Aronian immediately after the game. 

Wednesday is a free day at the festival.
