Armenian GM Aronian scored against Boris Gelfand in a tough game, while Anish Giri couldn't resist Veselin Topalov and lost for the five time in a row. 


46. Kxg2?
The last mistake of the game. White should have taken the pawn with their Knight. 
Now Black attack White King with all pieces and there's no any reasonable defence for White. 
47. Kg3 Rh7 48. g5 Qxg5+ 49. Kf2 Rxf4+ 50. exf4 Rh2+ 51. Ke3 Qg3+ 52. Kd4 Qg7+ 53. Ke3 Rh3+ 0-1

White resigned and the opponents started exchanging opinions. 


44...c4? 45.Qg5! (with a threat of transfering the Queen on h4 or h5, even in the case of 45...cxb3), and Black's worse position becomes hopeless. Soon Topalov won, this is his first win at the tournament.

Before the last round Aronian is one point ahead of his nearest rivals Magnus Carlsen, who draw against Kamsky, and Teimour Radjabov who also draw, but against Ivanchuk.
