The seventh Tal Memorial is on the final stretch: there are only two rounds left. It can already be definitively said that the question about the winner won't be answered today and it's quite possible that it may remain relevant until the end of the final game of the tournament. Five players have 4 points. Out of those five, only Vladimir Kramnik will face direct rivals in both of his remaining games: it's Fabiano Caruana today and Alexander Morozevich tomorrow. But it's no more than just an interesting fact because, for example, Teimour Radjabov's finish will be no less testing: today he's playing against Aronian and tomorrow, against Nakamura, who's only half a point behind the leading five. Magnus Carlsen will play against the two outsiders: Tomashevsky and McShane.
