Overnight leaders Vladimir Kramnik and Magnus Carlsen were pitted against each other in the third round at the 2012 London Chess Classic on Monday evening. This was another pawn-story as Kramnik failed to capitalize on his extra pawn. In fact, there was no clear way how that pawn could roll to a win for the former world chess champion.
