Candidates': Svidler joins Kramnik and Aronian in chasing the leader

In only decisive game of Round 5 Peter Svidler defeated Veselin Topalov and joined the group of Anand's nearest rivals.

Nonetheless, Svidler is not any happy with the game, "I got lost or almost lost position after the opening," he noted.

The amounts of time spent by the players differed greatly: Topalov played quickly and all confident, "but then I started making a mistake after mistake," Veselin said atthe press conference. "I can't even recall when I last played so terribly..."  

Topalov's look after the game was could bring no optimism

Svidler, "Objectively I didn't deserve ven a half point in this game. I played just a little bit better than Topalov who had a teerible game."  

In a commentary to NTV+ Channel, winner added, "It may seem strange but I found both won games at this competition boring in terms of content. On the other hand I can't blame myself for the yesterdays' game against Aronian - I wanted to get a rich play and I got it..."
