Although Fabio Caruana grabbed some initiative against Vassily Ivanchuk and even gave a try to the tempting rook sacrifice, at the end he he had to satisfy with the perpetual check. 

French Defence
1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 dxe4 5.Nxe4 Nbd7 6.Nf3 h6 7.Nxf6+ Nxf6 8.Bh4 c5 9.Bc4 cxd4 10.O-O Be7 11.Qe2 Nd7N 12.Bxe7 Qxe7 13.Rad1 O-O 14.Rxd4 Nf6 15.Rfd1 b6 16.Ne5 Qc7 17.h3 Bb7

18.Rd7 Qc8 19.Nxf7 Nxd7 20.Nxh6+ (perhaps, White won't have any advantage by 20.Qxe6 and 20.Nd6 as well) 20...Kh7

21.Qh5 (21.Nf7 Nf6!) 21...Nf6! (21...gxh6?? 22.Bd3+) 1/2-1/2. White should have played 22.Bd3+ Kh8 23.Nf7+ Kf8 24.Nh6+, and in case of  24...gxh6, то 25.Qg6+, they still have the perpetual check.

Topalov - Aronian encounter has also finished in a draw. The game turned out to be less exhiting, however, Aronian applied novelty already on the 7th move!
