Kramnik-Aronian game 5 live commentary by Sergey Shipov

Here's today's live commentary by GM Sergey Shipov on the fifth game of the Aronian-Kramnik match. After a relatively quick draw in game four the scores remain level on 2-2 with only two games to go. 

The players ranked number 2 and 3 on the FIDE rating list are competing against each other over six classical games. They'll play an additional rapid game if the main game on any given day is drawn in under three hours. The final game will take place on Friday.
