Commentary of Round 5 games by GM Alexander Delchev

Kramnik-Aronian (½-½)
Very interesting and eventful game which brings an infinite entertainment to us - the kibitzers and the big joy for the analysers. Kramnik once again proved he is an unpleasant examiner for Aronian who did past the test but with a mediocre grade... see game with commentary
