I.ve played Peter Leko, Hungary in many tournaments over the last three years. After some initial losses I scored two wins last year. Anyhow, black against Leko is not an easy task.
As in some previous rounds I played the same main opening against this opponent as in our previous encounter (in Tal Memorial).
In a fairly sharp position he decided to trade off pieces to enter a slightly better endgame, and I had to find some precise moves to make a draw.
This was a satisfactory result today as V.Anand outplayed and beat V.Kramnik in a great game, and Shirov drew with Karjakin.
Going into the last round as white against F. Caruana, Italy, I.m sole leader half a point ahead of Kramnik and Shirov and a full point ahead of V.Anand.
