Levon Aronian defeated one of his main rivals, Fabiano Caruana, in the second rond of the 76th Tata Steel tournament in Wijk aan Zee, the Netherlands. In a game not without mistakes, the Armenian’s a-pawn became a decisive factor. Boris Gelfand started with 0.0/2 as he lost to Richard Rapport, who played the Budapest Gambit. The third winner was Anish Giri, who won a sharp game against Arkadij Naiditsch.
