Carlsen beat Aronian in Game 3!

I watched part of the Candidate games on ICC last night. Carlsen produced a shocking result by beating Aronian in the 3rd game. Now he is leading 2-1 after trailing 0-1 in the first game! correction: Carlsen and Aronian are tight 1.5-1.5 . The second game was a draw-sorry for the mistake-Hairulov
