Armenia’s Grandmaster Levon Aronian is the solitary leader at the World Chess Candidates Tournament after three rounds of play at the competition being held in London.

Aronian has 2 ½ points, half a point clear of the next rival, after registering two wins and one draw.

Aronian has defeated Boris Gelfand (Israel) and Vassily Ivanchuk (Ukraine), tying the game with FIDE’s current number one Magnus Carlsen (Norway).

Monday is a day off in the tournament.

Tomorrow, Aronian will play   Peter Svidler from Russia.

The London Candidates Tournament will determine the challenger to face current World Champion Viswanathan Anand later this year.
