Luke McShane managed to crush the world's second player

The encounter of the world's second player Levon Aronian and the newcomer and the outsider of the competition Luke Mcshane went in an unexpected way. In a rare line of the Chebanenko system the Englishman sacrificed an exchange (the decision which has already taken place several times) and got a perspective position. On move 14 Aronian was forced to move his king to the center.

McShane spent a lot of time and soon got in a time trouble, despite that, he made his attack to work by declining the move repetition draw with 2 minutes left.

This crushing defeat of one of the favourites of the tournament Aronian was a real surprise. Before the round it seemed that he will send McShane, who has lost previous 2 rounds, to the free day with 0 out of 3.

Levon Aronian:
"After Nc6 I understood everything. To be true I forgot the evaluation of this continuation. And now I already got that the position is very hard."

"After such games one should have a good rest. I usually have competitions where I can't show my best play while I won't lose. I hope that the free day will set me up again."
