6-8. Ivanchuk, van Wely, Naiditsch ½
I am not sure why there is a need to have a rest day after 2 rounds for a 7 round tournament. But today is a rest day at the Dortmund tournament. Round 3 will resume on Tuesday.
Round 3 Pairings:
Naiditsch – Kramnik
Ivanchuk – Nepomniachtchi
van Wely – Leko
Mamedjarow – Gustafsson
