Kramnik takes the lead after blowing out Leko in just 32 moves from the Black side of a Pelikan Sicilian. Kramnik has a 1 pt. lead with 3 rds. left,and has his bye coming.

Leko seemed to have a very good position (I had actually given up watching the game live because I thought it would be a Leko win or draw) but he made a terrible mistake. It was nice to see such a decisive game between two players who've acquired reputations for quick draws!
For anyone who is interested, you can follow the game live on ICC (you can follow along as a free guest), while also listening to www.chess.fm radio. If you click on "follow chess.fm" on ICC, the board there will change as the commentary at chess.fm changes from board to board. I love it. But please don't tell many people that you are "listening to chess on the radio" or they may never fully believe in your sanity again...
