Many game draws in the first day, only two decisive games, one of them was Wang Yue's and that game has ended his 85 games undefeated record (including 3 games in early December China  Chess League Division A Championship - 10 total), but he still beat Vladimir Kramnik's series of 82 games undefeated record in the period January 1999 - July 2000. Since 4th March and the first round of Reykjavik Open against FM Bjorn Thorfinnsson (replay here), Wang Yue has remained unbeaten in the next 82 games! Mikhail Tal signed the top two records: 86 games in the period July 1972 - April 1973 and 93(!) games between October 1973 - October 1974. It should be added that the great Jose Raul Capablanca was immune from February 1916 until March 1924, but "only" over the course of 63 games. Quoted from Chessdom.com. The latest news: former world champion Garry Kasparov was arrested in an rally in Moscow, police said.
