LOL I suppose the fact only 4 rounds were played doesn't interfere with the statement.

No. As has been pointed out many times on the Live Game page, chessgames.com has just got the games mixed up.
The game you're refering to is actually Aronian - Kamsky.
|Jan-17-12|| ||DUS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fVX...
Levon Aronian on his games with his usual nice humor.
|Jan-17-12|| ||FSR: So back on Earth the real standings if I'm counting right are Carlsen and Aronian (no draws!) =1st at 3-1, Caruana and Radjabov =3rd at 2.5-1.5.|
|Jan-17-12|| ||DUS: Tata Steel (2012)/Fabiano Caruana|
While CG hasn't yet fixed the above link, you can see that the young talent Caruana first had a draw in the game with Carlsen at move 34, but then evidently he has changed his mind and has played more and could beat his strong oponent on the move 58.
|Jan-17-12|| ||waustad: Yes. There is even video if one needs more confirmation.|

|Jan-17-12|| ||King Death: So the inevitable march to 2852+ has slowed down for a day. Now it's back to the business of winning the tournament like it should be. Magnus's time will come, there's no point in getting obsessed with when he'll get to the number which is just a number anyway. Let the kid play fighting chess and win. In his short life we've already seen a ton of that.|
|Jan-17-12|| ||achieve: Well said, KD.
Seldomly one like that comes along and passes here.
|Jan-17-12|| ||DUS: <Whitehat1963> No, as <waustad> I think we should rather trust CG so far...|
|Jan-17-12|| ||Tabanus: <chessgames.com: Thanks to everybody for participating today. Please note there are no games tomorrow, but we'll be back on Thursday the 19th for the exciting Tata Steel 5th round. Hope to see you then!>|
Is this a software posting?
|Jan-17-12|| ||kasp: caruana - carlsen DRAW... not 1-0|
|Jan-17-12|| ||LEPORNO8: Carlsen's chess career seems an aircraft carrier, no one can stop it|
|Jan-17-12|| ||FSR: You notice how Aronian beats all the players with a K in their names? Unfortunately for him, only Ivanchuk is left.|
|Jan-17-12|| ||NakoSonorense: Loek van Wely is also there.|
|Jan-17-12|| ||theagenbiteofinwit: <LIFE Master AJ: Caruana just beat Carlsen ... and leads the tournament with 3.5 out of 5.>|
Reality, have you been introduced to LMAJ? Oh ok, just as well, I don't think you two would hit it off.
|Jan-17-12|| ||FSR: <Nakosonorense> Good point.|
|Jan-17-12|| ||Penguincw: What an interesting tournament. Aronian and Karjakin have yet to draw and Van Wely, Gelfand and Topalov have no decisive games.|
|Jan-17-12|| ||fisayo123: <matebay> <The only reason he finds himself in such a position is because he get's invited all the time...giving him all the time to pick up ripe elo points. The same holds true of the top players today.> I think this post makes some sense, tbh. You get invited everytime, more opportunity to improve chess ability and pick up OR lose elo points and more opportunity to beat "rusty" 2700+ players who have played not nearly as much recently.|
|Jan-17-12|| ||TheBB: <Penguincw> Gelfand has a decisive game. I guess you mean Ivanchuk.|
|Jan-17-12|| ||Penguincw: < TheBB: <Penguincw> Gelfand has a decisive game. I guess you mean Ivanchuk. >|
Sure. When I was making the post, I saw Gelfand with < 2/4 (+0 -0 =4) >. I must've misread it. :)
|Jan-17-12|| ||Kazzak: Pentala Harikrishna seems to know a thing or two about chess. My bad for not having played through his games before.|
A nickname popped up in my head as I did play through them: Stone Cold Calculator.
He's having fun in Tata B.

If you insist on getting all hypertechnical, Caruana didn't beat Carlsen, doesn't lead the tournament, doesn't have 3.5 points, and hasn't played 5 games. Apart from that, AJ nailed it.
