Magnus Carlsen beat Boris Gelfand for the second time in the Candidates.

Evgeny Sveshnikov who gave live commentary on Chess-News radio noted that both GMs played the opening logically. As a result White maintained a slight advantage. It's hard to outline where exactly has black mistaken without thorough analysis. Gelfand, "It's hard to say where the mistake was made. Of course this strategy with a5 and getting the queen to c2 is very ambitious, but I believed that black had good dynamic possibilities..."  

Magnus was asked about his nearest rivals (Aronian and Kramnik) who have also won today. "I'm happy to still be leading... I wasn't thrilled that the other two guys won the games, but there's nothing I can do about that. I wasn't sure that the Budapest Gambit was what I wanted to see in the game against Aronian, but again I can only change what I do myself."
