  ChessHigherCat: Great game by Aronian. Completely dominated Caruana in the opening. So much for conventional wisdom about the 2 knights vs. 2 bishops. 46. Nc5! was a killer move. And who says the London has to be boring? (although I remember a master cello class with Janos Starker where some girl started playing Elgar very passionately and Starker yelled "No, no, no! Elgar! Rainy day in London!"
