While Markus Ragger and Etienne Bacrot, who shared the lead with 4.0/4 each, both did not mind a quick and peaceful draw, Hikaru Nakamura and Vishy Anand tried to regain ground. Nakamura managed to do so by winning against Women’s World Champion Mariya Muzychuk with a smashing piece sacrifice but Anand pressed too hard and lost against Adrien Demuth from France (Elo 2535).
