Bilbao Master 2008 Round 7 : Carlsen lost to Ivanchuk.

Someone in found the mistake in the players rating - both were rated the same - 2787. Actually Magnus official FIDE rating now is 2775 where as Ivanchuk is rated 2781. photo from

Vassily Ivanchuk - my favourites player beat the leader of the tournament -Magnus Carlsen in round 7. Vassily control the game from the begining when Magnus made a mistake on move 13. The game is more one sided from that point although there's risk that Ivanchuk would lost on time in the end but he eventually managed to win the game quite easily.

Former World Champ - Veselin Topalov suffered his first defeat to the resurgent - Levon Aronian. Meanwhile World Champion Vishy Anand seems to play caoutisly in this tournaments when he setteled down for another draw against Radjabov.
