A packed playing hall in the Savoy Hotel in Zurich

Again both games of the Zurich Chess Challenge ended in draws, in Sunday’s second round. In the encounter between World Champions, Vishy Anand equalized easily with Black against Vladimir Kramnik and at move 41 a draw was agreed in a rook ending. Boris Gelfand versus Fabiano Caruana was more interesting; a 3.f3 Grünfeld got quite sharp although it was always fairly balanced.
