The young 15 year old phenom won again today! This time, he defeated super GM Morozevich. His rating is about 2700 now. I think he is going to give Aronian a run for his money in their upcoming match. Talent + Proper Training = Success! He is tied for first with another former child prodigy Teimour Radjabov.
After 2 rounds, here are the standings:
1-2 2.0 GM Magnus Carlsen (Norway, 2675), GM Teimour Radjabov (Azerbaijan, 2717)
3 1.0 GM Alexander Morozevich (Russia, 2731)
4-5 0.5 GM Lazaro Bruzon (Cuba, 2667), GM Andrei Volokitin (Ukraine, 2662)
6 0.0 GM Yannick Pelletier (Switzerland, 2583)
