All draws today at the 2017 Sinquefield

After three rounds the standings are:

                                
Carlsen            2                
Caruana            2         
Vachier-Lagrave    2     
Nakamura           1.5
Anand              1.5
Karjakin           1.5
Aronian            1.5
So                 1.5
Svidler            1
Nepomniachtchi      .5

Games begin tomorrow at 2pm EST. No rest day until Monday - that's five straight days of chess without a rest day, almost unheard of in today's tournaments schedules. There is $300,000 of prize money to be distributed, including $75,000 to the winner, so I guess the grandmasters will suck it up.
