Magnus Carlsen

Magnus Carlsen allows no surprises at the Gausdal Classics 2007 and is firmly leading the field with 4.5 points. Half a point behind are the 70-years old GM Lajos Portisch, who is having a fantastic event, and Michal Krasenkov from Poland. Unfortunately, IM Irina Krush lost two games in a row and is required to score 2.5 points against GM Kulaots, GM Carlsen and Eric Moskow to secure a GM norm.
