São Paulo Masters Aronian draws first blood; Anand and Carlsen draw
The Grand Slam officially started its first leg in São Paulo, with the world's elite playing, including all three 2800+ players. Anand-Carlsen was the foremost game on the card, but was sadly the least exciting, ending in a lackluster draw. Nakamura and Ivanchuk immediately shirked theory, but also drew, while Aronian struck first and beat Vallejo in an offbeat Slav.
