Teimour Radjabov becomes harder-to-beat 

After four rounds of Wijk aan Zee Super-GM tournament Levon Aronian and Magnus Carlsen share lead in the elite A group (we remind you that Armenian GM caught Norwegian after defeating Gata Kamsky in the Round 4).

Sergei Karjakin celebrated second success in a row by defeating Navara. You can find fourth day in pictures here

Gelfand - Radjabov duel in Round 4 appeared to be pretty exciting despite the fact it finished peacefully. Azerbaijani GM used his favourite King's Indian Defence for the second time in this competition and for the second time defended it without any serious problems. Moreover, in the previous game against Giri Black almost grabbed the initiative, so many considered his agreement to draw somewhat premature.  

Starting from the Candidates matches that took place in May 2011 in Kazan, Teimour Radjabov has acquired a reputation as an 'impregnable" player. Since then we can recall only two defeats he got in the serious games and both times he played with White. 

On a question who is better in King's Indian Defence - Kasparov or Radjabov - Anand's challenger in the World Championship Boris Gelfand (himself an expert in this opening, by the way) hesitated to answer at first, however then he added: "Kasparov is not playing chess anymore, so now - Teimour".
