International News Today - Dec 8, 2011

Round 5 in London just finished........ as I said before, it's going to be tough to keep track of the leaders. Right now Carlsen, Kramnik, Nakamura, and McShane are all +2, however based on 3 point scoring, Nakamura has 10/15, Carlsen 9/15 due to a different combination of wins, draws and losses. Kramnik and McShane have had the bye and have 8/12, so would have to win their game in hand just to equal Carlsen.

So the big games tomorrow are McShane - Nakamura and Anand - Kramnik. Carlsen has the bye.
