Two draws in 5th round Zurich Chess Challenge

MORE LATER Fabiano Caruana maintained his half point lead at the Zurich Chess Challenge as both games in the fifth round ended in draws. Anand and Gelfand played a Catalan and on move 20 the Israeli sacrificed an exchange for two pawns. After the queens were traded all that was left was a positional draw. Vladimir Kramnik played a Réti or ‘Reverse Benoni’ and in this game it was Caruana who gave an exchange. After some more complications this game was drawn as well.
