ALL CLOSE IN BIEL AFTER 2 ROUNDS

After 2 rounds of the Grandmaster Tournament in Biel 2 players tie for first place on 1.5 points.

1. GM Evgeny Alekseev (RUS, 2708) 1.5
GM Magnus Carlsen (NOR, 2775) 1.5
3. GM Leinier Dominguez (CUB, 2708) 1.0
GM Alexander Onischuk (USA, 2670) 1.0
5. GM Yannick Pelletier (SUI, 2569) 0.5
GM Etienne Bacrot (FRA, 2691) 0.5
Although only 2 rounds have been played, as you would expect it is going to be a close tournament perhaps only a couple of points between first and last place.
Today sees the 3rd round games take place Carlsen plays Alekseev.
