The unsuccessful chain for the ex-world champion continues

The traditional Dortmund round-robin has finished today. Fabiano Caruana of Italy who ensured first place already yesterday drew Leko in the last round and finished with 5.5/7. 

This isn't first time for the Italian grandmaster to break 2800 rating line - the FIDE rating list is published on 1st of every month. As long as only ten days are left till the end of July it is unlikely that Fabiano will manage to spoil his performance.

Kramnik was outplayed in Berlin variation (not in endgame) of Ruy Lopez which was also played by Caruana today. Kramnik's rival was Ruslan Ponomariov.

This is already the third unsuccessful competition in a row (after Stavanger) for Kramnik. He lost 16.7 ELO points and now is 10th in the online list with 2760.3. Last time Kramnik had almost similar rating (2759) was in 2009, up to this year the rating floated around 2800 mark. From earlier periods we can recall 2005-2006 (before the match against Topalov) when Kramnik's results dropped considerably due to the health issues. 

Traditionally the competition in Dortmund is considered as successful for Kramnik, but this time he finished competition without a single won game. 

Take a look at the games of the winner.
