Yesterday's round of the London Chess Classic featured all decisive games. Magnus Carlsen gained his 4th win in 5 round. 

Michael Adams stood slightly better up to 25th move in the Spanish game. Black's compensation for the pawn didn't look as satisfactory, but Englishman started making mistake after mistake closer to the time control. Magnus used his chance and grabbed all the "presents" he got. In the endgame Adams decided to exchange the queens probably for checking Norwegian's ability of playing pawn endgames. Magnus didn't disappoint. 

"I've only had one uglier position in my life", - Luke McShane said after his game against Vladimir Kramnik. 

KRAMNIK - McSHANE

20.Rxc4! Here's how it started. Check out the outcome below.

Black triumphed in two other duels. Vishy Anand played "against himself": the Grunfeld defence from his 3rd game of the World Championship match took place in his yesterday's game against Gawain Jones. In Moscow Indian player got an advantage but failed to win, in London he crushed his opponent in 28 moves.
