It was another action-packed Round 7 in the 5th Altibox Norway Chess 2017. Levon Aronian won against Sergey Karjakin to take solo lead at the end of the round, with 2 more rounds to go. The world champion and Norway’s very own, Magnus Carlsen, found himself in trouble again, as he lost to Vladimir Kramnik, and thus now shares the bottom place with Maxime Vachier-Lagrave in the ranking. Wesley So failed to capitalize on his 1-pawn advantage and eventually split the point with Fabiano Caruana.
