After 3 rounds into the tournament, Grischuk is in sole lead with 3/3 points followed by Leko on 2.5/3. Karjakin on 2/3. Peter Svidler played some real tough games in the starting rounds itself, black against Gata Kamsky and white against Karjakin and drew both in round 2 and 3 respectively.
After Karjakin's brilliant play in the 2nd leg of the Candidates 2014, he looks to be in really good form and I can definitely say he will give a tough time to his opponents.
