Standings after 2 rounds:

1-3. Kramnik, Leko, Gustafsson 1½
4-5. Mamedyarov, Nepomniachtchi 1
6-8. Ivanchuk, van Wely, Naiditsch ½

I am not sure why there is a need to have a rest day after 2 rounds for a 7 round tournament. But today is a rest day at the Dortmund tournament. Round 3 will resume on Tuesday.

Round 3 Pairings:

Naiditsch – Kramnik
Ivanchuk – Nepomniachtchi
van Wely – Leko
Mamedjarow – Gustafsson
