Exciting finish in store

Three decisive games in the 9th round of the Grand Slam Masters has set up an exciting final round. Carlsen continued his good second half form with a crushing win over World Champion Viswanathan Anand. Anand equalised out of the opening, but one wrong move was enough for Carlsen to put him under pressure, and second poor move left him in a hopeless position.
Caruana kept his share of first place after accepting an interesting piece sacrifice from Aronian, who failed to find the correct followup. Karjakin was the third of the victors, beating tail-ender Vallejo after his oppoentn ruined a good position while short of time.
