2013 Candidates, Round 2: Aronian-Gelfand

We have our first decisive result but a slightly sad one as Boris Gelfand blundered away the game on move 25 with Rc8, allowing the winning tactic 26 Bh6+. The press conference was brief and low-key as there wasn't much to discuss and Gelfand's courteous and sensitive opponent did not want to rub salt into the wounds. Let a photo of the conference suffice and we will draw a veil...
