Levon Aronian takes the lead in the GRENKE Chess Classic

The GRENKE Chess Classic moved from Karlsruhe to Baden-Baden for the second part of the tournament after a restday. The game between the highest rated players of the event, Magnus Carlsen and Fabiano Caruana ended in a unevenful draw, but the other games in round four had a lot of interesting chess to offer. Levon Aronian took the lead with his win over Matthias Blübaum after the leader after three rounds, Hou Yifan lost against Maxime Vachier-Lagrave. Arkadij Naiditsch had a good chance to join Aronian at the top of the table, but he could not convert his winning chances against Georg Meier and had to be content with a draw.
The fifth round of the GRENKE Chess Classic starts on Thursday 20 April.
