The top four have 6/9 with Carlsen just half a point behind. See complete standings here. In round nine, Nakamura drew with World Champion Anand, who was neck and neck with Hikaru for most of the event.




 
The only leader who Nakamura has not yet faced is Kramnik, who he will play in round 12 on Saturday the 29th. See the full schedule here, read Macauley Peterson's earlier CLO report and watch his video of Nakamura after four rounds. Also look for a post-tourney wrap-up by GM Ian Rogers.
