Candidates': Aronian catches Anand after 7th round

Levon Aronian gained an important win over Sergey Karjakin in Round 7 of Candidates' and joined Vishy Anand, who drew Peter Svidler, on top.

Karjakin, "I decided to fight in Berlin. 4.d3 may not promise anything special, however, it usually leads to playing positions. Well, to be true, my tournament situation influenced on my opening decision. Perhaps, I might have tried something else if I had +1 before the game." 

Aronian, "I try to play every game without thinking about tournament situation. I concentrate on the game and the quality of play. I really enjoy playing against the strongest chess players of the world.

...My plans for each game are simple: if there comes up a playing position, then it's interesting to play, if not - I should not be late for football. I play with my friends - Armenians from Khanty-Mansiysk and we play in different spots, like wherever we find place to play. So, it's just better to finish the game till eight o'clock!"

Karjakin, "This might be a crucial moment. If I have taken 16.Nxe5 there would be a different game. After 16.dxe5 Be6 position is already unpleasant. Perhaps whi is not worse if playing precisely."

Aronian, "I agree, White should hold if it plays accurately. I didn't like Sergey's choice 23.Bf4 - better was 23.Bf2..."
Karjakin,: "And another inaccurate move 27.е5. I didn't expect that black knight will retrn on с4... I was already in a time trouble by 30th move and I failed to find a correct line." 

GMs agreed that White is in hard situation after time control.
