Candidates’ R4: Mamedyarov & Aronian Win, Anand Maintains Lead

In round 4 of the 2014 FIDE Candidates’ Tournament in Khanty-Mansiysk Vishy Anand maintained his half-point lead. The Indian GM drew a wild but relatively short game with Vladimir Kramnik that started as a Vienna. Levon Aronian moved to shared second place by beating Peter Svidler in a Grünfeld. Shakhriyar Mamedyarov finally had Caissa on his side; the Azerbaijani won against Dmitry Andreikin in a Chebanenko Slav.
